In the hills of Uttaranchal there is a place where there
are flowers everywhere. This place is called the ‘Valley
of Flowers’. In some places, one sees red flowers blooming
on bushes, while in others one finds white flowers
peeping out between the stones. There are wide areas
carpeted with the brightest yellow flowers. And
suddenly, elsewhere, blue flowers shining like tiny stars
between the grass. All this seems like a beautiful dream,
doesn’t it? Yes, because like a dream these flowers bloom
only for a few weeks in the year.
Now close your eyes and imagine that you have
reached such a place. How does it feel? Which songs do
you feel like singing?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Have you ever seen so many flowers grow together
anywhere? where?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö How many differently coloured flowers have you seen?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Write their colours.

Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Now you were just left counting, weren’t you?
Are there any things in your house which have designs of
flowers made on them – like clothes, sheets, vases, etc.?
Here is a floral design in the box below.
For the teacher: Encourage children to locate Uttrakhand on the map.
The design in the picture
is called ‘Madhubani’. It is
a very old form of folk art.
Do you know why it is
called Madhubani? There
is a district in Bihar called
Madhubani. Here, during
festivals and happy
occasions, the walls of the
houses and their courtyards
are painted with such
pictures. These paintings
are made out of paste of
powdered rice in which
colour has been mixed. The colours used in Madhubani
painting are very special too. To make them, indigo (Neel),
turmeric (Haldi), colours from flowers and trees, etc., are
used. The paintings show human beings, animals, trees,
flowers, birds, etc.
Draw your own design in your notebook and colour it as well.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö  Look at the designs made by your friends as well.

Let us look closely
Children who can bring flowers may bring one or two flowers to
class. Remember that you must collect only fallen flowers. Do
not pluck any flower. Make groups of three or four children and
look at one flower carefully –
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö What is the colour of the flower?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö What kind of a scent does it have?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö What does it look like – a bell, a bowl, a brush or anything
else?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Do these flowers grow in bunches?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö How many petals does it have?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Are all the petals joined together or separate?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Outside the petals, can you see any green leafy structure?
How many are there?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Inside the petals, in the middle of the flower, can you see
some thin structures? Write its colour.
