Teaching Science Through Experiments

>> Jan 7, 2016

Science is a subject that can be difficult for some students. There are formulas to learn, types of matter to explore and habitats to learn about. While in the classroom, you can use science manipulatives to teach children components of the subject. These are items that are colorful and easy to understand. You can find items for all grade levels. Items are also available for those who home school their children.

It's best to talk to children about the subject to find out what they understand and what needs more work. Once you know where to go in the classroom, it's easier to select the best manipulative to use.

Many of the manipulatives that you use will seem like the children are playing a game, but they actually teach a lesson with each component. Some of the items that you can use are posters. These are more for the visual learner who enjoys seeing large pictures and who can learn better by reading. Other items that can be used include magnets, science kits and blocks that can get across the numerical aspects of the subject.

There are kits for each level of science, such as biology, chemistry and physics. Each level has its own instruments that are used, such as a microscope for biology and experiments for chemistry. Instructions are available for each grade level, and there are different lessons depending on the grade of the children. There are large kits that have several items in them for a week or a month of lessons while other kits only have lessons for one or two days.

One of the benefits of using this kind of teaching is that children can see what they are learning about. It's one thing to read a book about chemical reactions or turning water into a different color, but when children are able to see the activity, then they can sometimes learn faster. This can also help in the retention of the lesson so that the information can be used in another class. It also allows for social interaction in the classroom as you can divide children into groups so that they take part in multiple activities at one time.
