Model of Clean And Green Society for Class 5 Students

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is very effective in the learning process as children / students get involved in making various projects / models and doing various activities. A PBL not only helps in bringing the best out of a child but also helps the child in thinking out-of-the-box and helps in improving it's creative skills.

Here is one such project done by my child studying in Std V as a part of school inspection. She was asked to do some model and she chose to do a society which is clean and is full of greenery and she named it 'Clean and Green Society'.

Here is how to do the model:

I took a rectangular piece of hard cardboard from a waste cardboard box. I then stuck green color velvet paper on it for a green look and kept it aside. I then took cardboard boxes of different sizes got along with tonic bottles.

I then stuck desired color papers on the boxes. For a natural look, I took thin white cardboard which you get inside shirt on purchase of one. I used this white cardboard in the shapes of doors, windows and for balconies.

For a more natural look, I took a black sketch pen and drew the borders for the doors and windows. After these buildings are ready, I stuck the buildings on the green cardboard. As I made a society, I made only the essentials for a society which include a park, a hospital and a school.

I then made few paper trees with green color paper and stuck it at desired places like inside the building premises, on the roadside and the like.

Then I took a strip (of required width and length) of black paper, stuck it on the green board to make the road and marked with to make zebra crossing and broken white lines to give a natural look to the road.

For park, I added few things like a slide made of popsicle (ice cream sticks) and also used these sticks for making the boundary wall of the society with an open entrance and displayed the name 'Clean and Green Society'.

I then placed few small dolls in front of the school, in the park and so on. And finally I placed small vehicles on the road, a school bus inside the school premises and an ambulance inside the hospital premises which gave a real look to the entire model.

I had all the stuff which I stored for the past 12 years and haven't spent a single rupee to make this model.

Hope this would be helpful to those who try to make model of a society / city.

Traditional Telugu Wedding

"Dharmecha, ardhecha, kamecha, nati charitavyeti, data vadet, nati charatavya - Nati Charami"
"Mangalyam tantunanena mama jeevana hetuna, kanthe badhnami subhage tvam jeeva sarada satam"


These are the two most important chanting in Indian Hindu weddings.

Wedding (Vivah / Vivaham in Sanskrit), is a highly sacred event in Hindu culture. It is a life long commitment between a man and a woman. Vivaham is one of the 16 samskaras. Brahmacharya (youth) of a man ends with marriage and his Grihastasramam (family life) begins.

Hindu weddings involve various ceremonial / procedural events which are almost similar in all regions with slight variations. The events take place in the form of prayers, invocations and vows that are recited in Sanskrit. The prayers are power-packed with in-depth meaning and describe the strong bondage between husband and wife who are united in the presence of Panch Bhoota i.e the five elements of Earth, in a ritualistic manner.
