EVS Class 3 NCERT Solutions, Chapter-7: Saying without Speaking
Chapter 7 Saying Without Speaking sensitises kids that not everyone around them is the same. Some have speech and hearing impairments, while some are visually challenged.
- The chapter introduces this sensitive concept through the game of Dumb Charades, where the players have to silently act out certain situations, i.e., they have to talk through actions.
- Children need to understand that communicating with differently-abled persons is important because they too can express their emotions by signs and actions.
- Different emotions experienced by us like sadness, joy, anger, and fear are also mentioned, along with the fact that dance is also a form of expressing our feelings.
The NCERT textbook (Looking Around) questions are answered in a simple and engaging manner. We also have related ‘Learning Concepts’, and interactive worksheets with solutions. Our ‘Learning Beyond’ segment caters to all the probable questions that the child might think out of curiosity.

Answer: The children of about six to eight months express themselves by their face, hands and feet. As they do not know how to speak, they make funny noises through their mouth.

Answer:There was a joyful Squirrel who lived on a big tree. Whenever
happy, she liked to dance on the tree trunk. One day she collected some
rice, some nuts and some dal and thought to make nice yummy lunch
for her friends around the tree. So, she started cooking in a kadhai.
After some time, the nice smell of hot food started coming out of the
kadhai. The Squirrel became very happy and started dancing and
singing. The Squirrel’s friends, Ms. Myna, Mr. Crow, Mr. and Mrs. Rat
their family, and the Honeybees also joined the feast. So, it was a very
delicious lunch party the Squirrel gave to her friends.
