These activities are devised keeping in mind students who do not have access to high-end infrastructure, as per NCERT. A week-wise plan for the secondary stage (from classes 9 to 10) has been developed, keeping in view the choice of availability of tools with the teachers. Links for e-resources have been provided along with the activities.
