Odisha schoolkids create sensory wall storybook for blind friends
Students at the SAI International School in Bhubaneshwar in Orissa wanted to give their blind friends access to stories that were not just in Braille storybooks or magazines.
Their friends were studying at the Orissa Association for the Blind, which has more than 700 visually impaired students, staff, and teachers.
They have brought the magical art of storytelling alive by using sound and touch. They collaborated with students at the Winterbourne International Academy from the United Kingdom to build a Sensory Wall Storybook on the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears.
They chose one story to make their 3D sensory wall storybook. Sensory walls help to stimulate the senses of visually impaired children and adults, through creation of play spaces and activity centres.
