Is Unit 8 of EVS subject of 4th standard also about the Journey to someplace?
Indeed the chapter is about the journey to someplace as the name suggested after reading, I found this could be the continuation of the previous chapter. This chapter also describes the train journey and other important travel information but the destination is released as the grandmother’s house.
The entire chapter is all about the experiences the author had but there are a few of them I can highlight under: –
• Firstly the destination Kottayam was revealed and the author was tired but board the bus.
• He found the journey on the bus was tiring and not so comfortable.
• Then he spoke about the journey in the fairy along with other people.
• Watching the sun disappear was my favorite moment the author had in the story.
Do you think that reading the story of some else’s journey in chapter 8 of EVS of 4th standard could teach us anything?
The best way to learn about places is to travel but it is not possible for all the people to travel all the time. So reading the travel experiences can give you the idea of the places that you have never thought about and were not aware of. Travel stories can also help you to plan the journey accordingly so that you can get the information that what you suppose to do once you reach the place and how to do reach the places and plan accordingly.
Moreover, Travel writings can give you the idea to record your journey as you now know there are people in the world who will read the story and experiences you had during the journey and take help from.
The experiences that the author had were neutral as he wants to record the experience of how he had it there as you will find in the chapter how he was bothered in that bus journey but amazing in the fairy journey watching the Sun disappearing into the water. So, One can imagine if they will go they might feel the near to same experiences.
Do you think chapter 8 of the 4th standard EVS was easy to cover in one day?
Yes, the chapter is easy to cover as the chapter doesn’t contain much of the difficulty and is made as a story which is why it is easy to cover it in one day. Besides, the revision is still suggested.
