Have you heard of Click Beetles?

May be you have seen it, but you don’t know that its called click beetle. So did our students from Class III. They found a new type of beetle that kept clicking and springing into the air on the corridor during an outdoor class. They were so curious to know how and why the beetle springs itself into the air with a click.

Their teacher encouraged the students to explore and find out more about this beetle. Students went online and searched about this beetle. They found that this insect is called ‘Click Beetle’ and it springs itself into the air when touched. They dived into the inquiry further and found other relevant information about this beetle.

At Ela, as a part of I B method of teaching, curiosity is the key to inquiry and students learn best when they take ownership to their learning. Curiosity enables them to learn and experience knowledge in a unique way.
