Collecting leaves, twigs or any other natural product.

Students then analyzed the shapes of the natural items they collected. They came to the conclusion that nature makes things in all shapes but not in the square shape. As for humans, we design and manufacture many of our products in the square shape for ease of transportation and storage. They discussed on the ‘square watermelons’ which are now being grown and the pros and cons of meddling with nature.
