Let us meet some children and see how they reach school.
Bamboo Bridge Bamboo Bridge Bamboo Bridge Bamboo Bridge Bamboo Bridge
It rains so much where we live.
Sometimes after the rain, there
is knee-high water everywhere.
But that does not stop us from
getting to school. We hold our
books in one hand and bamboo
with the other. We quickly cross
the bamboo and rope bridge to
reach school.
Try these
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Collect some bricks. Lay them
on the ground in a line as
shown in the picture. Try
walking on them. Was it easy ?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Make a small bridge by tying
4 or 5 bamboo poles together.
Ask your teacher to help you.
Now walk on your bridge.
How did you feel? Did you fall
down? If you walk like this a
few times, you will start
finding it easy.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Do you think it would be
easier to walk on this
bridge barefoot or with
shoes or slippers ? Why ?

The Trolley The Trolley The Trolley The Trolley The Trolley
Everyday we have to cross
the river to get to school.
The river is wide and deep.
There is a strong iron rope
across the river. On both
the sides it is tied tightly
with strong trees or rocks.
There is a trolley (an open
box made of wood)
attached with the rope. Four or five of us sit in the trolley. A
pulley helps the trolley to move across the rope. We reach
the other side of the river in a short time.

Observe pictures 1 and 2. In the pictures, children are pulling
the buckets from the well. Can you tell the difference in both the

see the use of pulleys? List them.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö With the help of a pulley, try and
