Kindly use the following points to frame your answer.

  1. Miss Sullivan took Helen by the hand in the fields in the summer of 1887.
  2. By then Helen had learned words such as water, mother, father, sister and teacher, etc and connected them to their owners.
  3. Miss Sullivan helped her learn to enjoy and appreciate nature through her touch and smell.
  4. She touched the earth and learned how it helped the growth of plants and in turn gave birds in the sky a place to build their nests.
  5. Through the assistance of Miss Sullivan, Helen learned to appreciate every little detail in the natural world.
  6. Her heightened sense of smell and touch connected her to other creations of the world like the blades of grass, the barks of wood, the petals of a flower and the warmth of the sun, etc.
  7. This connection made her kinship with the rest of the world more joyous and confident.
