‘Saira’s Life in Lakhabawal – A Village in India’

The interactive CDRom uses over 30 minutes of video, photographs, animated graphics, maps and games – a truly interactive way to learn about a village in India.

Saira is a real person and the life of her family in an established village has hardly changed over the past two decades.

The programme is based around Saira’s day, but it can be used to investigate different subjects such as weather, water, farming, industry, environment, communications, disasters, population and education.  The CD is designed for use as part of the National Curriculum Key Stage 2 module ‘A Village in India’ and for Key Stage 3 work on a developing country.  It is an enjoyable way for children and adults to learn about life in rural India.

The CDRom takes you to a village in Gujarat, west India, where you can:-

. meet Saira’s family

. visit the village school, farms and workplaces
