The grade 1 students did some more science experiments as part of their learning activities, following on from their previous experiments on static charge and observing how air released from a balloon can move an object.
This time they were:
- Using a magnifying glass to explore various things
- Comparing the density of water and salt water
The boys were very eager to take part in all these activities and it was very interesting to see them listening, learning and taking part. As suggested by the Principal, this concept of conducting science experiments have been successful because the students are excited to get hands on experience.
The experiments are currently conducted during the Environmental Studies periods. Teachers discuss and plan for an experiment each week and teach the students in the simplest possible way so they become confident and creative throughout the learning process.
