Taking Initiative

Quite touched when she showed me her news articles work. I did not give her any homework on this and she took the initiative to do. It shows me one thing. When a child is motivated, that child will take ownership of his/her learning, thus the pleasant outcome. And she is not the kind to do her own revision. Thus, this step is an achievement to her and of course, to me. 

States of Matter

Love to do this experiment. Each time I whip out the cup, it never fails to amaze my students. This simple experiment teaches heat gain and heat loss. The colour coded cup makes it easier for students to link the concepts together too. To them, it’s like magic. To me, well, it’s Science.

weSetting up for the hands on. It’s really versatile as it can be used to teach an actual p4 student or doing recap with my p5-6 students. Either way, it’s win win for me as I don’t need to keep taking them out. I used them for the whole day with my different Science age groups. 

Taking measurement and recording. 

Fun hands on that water can exist in three states of matter.

Watch carefully at the cup. 

Watch the colour change!

This never fails to amaze my students when I do this experiment. To them, it’s magic. To me, it’s Science. It’s a good tool to teach heat gain and heat loss. What they see, they are able to connect what they learn in real life.

Water in its 3 states of matter. Versatile experiment to teach p4 or recap for my upper level students. Easy to understand. I used this set to teach for the whole day for my different age groups. 

Life Cycles

Ewwwww… my students will crink their noses but they are excited to observe the specimens that lay within. Life cycles, in a fun way. I love hands on and making Science ‘alive’! Great tools to do recaping, in a non routine way. 

Time and Tide

I like June holidays, where I am able to use the extra time to guide my students. In this lesson, I needed to start his engine for Science, mainly to time him for highlighting key words in questions. Time management is important for students, so they are able to complete their paper within the time frame and still have time to check. 

June Holiday Fun

I love my p5 boy’s masterpieces again. He never fails to amaze me with his creativity in designing his experiment logs. I love how he creates his work, he loves how I’m able to weave the topics into the Science hands on kits. Good ‘partnership’!
