We are Young Scientists!

Science allows students to explore their world and discover new things. It is also an active subject, containing hands-on activities and experiments. Learning by doing allows children to become personally invested in their own learning process. Once a new concept has been taught, the time came for students to demonstrate it through hands-on activities and experiment. Here are some science activities that were done with my young clovers: Grade 3 students acted as scientists where they discovered all tools used in the science lab. They also learned strategies they must follow in the lab to keep themselves safe. Grade 4 students modeled the food chain using clay and wool. They also detected the suitable conditions to save food from decay. Moreover, grade 5 students planted different types of seeds. They took care of them on daily basis in order to sprout. They also used Bromothymol blue to check the suitable conditions for plants to make photosynthesis. Furthermore, grade 6 students modeled atoms, molecules, and compounds using playing dough.
