A sample of 100 students from Government Girls Primary School Dingi and Government Boys Primary school Dingi were selected by using purposive sampling technique for school selection and stratified random sampling technique was applied to groups selection. On the basis of pre-test, two groups were formed one was designated as experimental and the other was as control group.
