Report on practical excersices developed for children in Orissa, India.

This short report developed at Back to Basics Design Education for Children in Siddharthvillage, in Orissa, India, contains 3 practical exercises as a part of the Worldview Dimension of the EDE curriculum. The aim of the exercises is to explore life purpose and values among children.

These exercises aim to help students conceptualize the meaning of "values" and how to apply them to co-create reality (co-creating the universe). They also help students broaden their horizons and ways of thinking by assimilating values like respect, honesty, integrity, and caring, that give a glimpse to their life purpose. In addition, they help them understand the process and consequences of acquiring core values, addressing issues of fear among children, and helping them become more self confident.
