All Things India: Travel with our Tour Guide Mrs. Jaishri Vashisht

Just a little peek at the ways that our students are “traveling” to India. Here, I posed the questions to our tour guide for the fifth graders and filmed as if they are traveling beside her in the bus as we tour the city.

The fifth graders have had us on a “scavenger hunt” of sorts about all types of things India. Some of these things are not “in” Mumbai or not easily observable, so we asked our delightful tour guide to help us and explain the many things. The fifth grade, in particular, should watch these with their scavenger hunt in hand and “sit” beside Mrs. Jaishri Vashisht to learn about the items in their scavenger hunt. The rest of you may learn from her as well. Enjoy! It is about sixteen minutes long.

Mrs. Jaishri's contact information is below: Jaishri Vashisht Joyful Journeys Pvt. Lts. [email protected] www.touringindia.org Phone 26183779, 66302812 New Delhi (She covers the whole country and does wonderful student exchange programs. She used to be a teacher. I would really like to come back and have her take me on a “tiger spotting tour,” to the Ganges, to New Delhi, and to the Himalaya mountains.)
