Bookworms' Book Club at Karachi Zoo
A Homeworks EventEvent
Date: 14/12/2011 - 14/12/2011
Timing: 11 am - 1 pm
Venue: Karachi Zoo
Overview: Umm Uzair
Organiser: Bookworms' Book Club
Making great use of Karachi cool winter weather, Bookworms set out for a field trip to Karachi zoo. As we arrived to the zoo gate, we noticed many buses lined up at the entrance, indicating that the zoo will be full of schookids. And it was! Neatly walking in rows, hastened along by their teachers, little kiddies were going from cage to cage, repeating the names of animals in English. Some of the bookworms were so excited to see the schookids, that they forgot about the animals and were ready to join the neat rows themselves! The zoo had lots to offer: two huge elephants, Benal tiger, lions, black bear, alligators, zeebra, deer, monkeys and countless varieties of birds. Walking at our own pace from cage to cage (not being rushed by teachers!), we spent at each animal as much time as we wanted. Absolute favourites were the elephants and the alligators - it must be their enormous sizes that made them the most attractive. As we were standing on the bridge across the alligators pond, we kept on noticing more and more animals in the water and resting in the sun on the shores. After a good walk, we sat down in a quite corner of the zoo for some snacks. Mothers had done great job - the snacks were delicious! And they gave just the right amount of energy for us to start playing around in the little park again. A lone tree attracted the attention of kids - Aisha's hat was being trown onto its branches and then climbed after! The visit to the zoo was so full of excitement that we didn't have enough time for reading our stories. Umm Uzair promised that we'll read them next week, Insha'Allah, and revisit our zoo trip once again.

Pottery Day at Earthen Studio
A Homeworks EventEvent
Date: 22/01/2012 - 22/01/2012
Timing: 3 am - 5 pm
Venue: Earthen Studio, Phase 6, DHA, Karachi
Overview: Umm Sofya
Organiser: Karachi homeschoolers in collaboration with Earthen Studio
The trainers were friendly with kids, knew what they needed: guidance or no interference. The children also got a chance to work at the pottery wheel. The production processes of basic necessities of life (food - including pots n pans, clothing & footwear and shelter) is something children from a young age should know (how they are made, what materials are used and who makes them). This workshop gave the children a glimpse into the ageless tradition earthen-ware. Exposure to such professions also helps instill in children the respect for all noble and halaal professions.
