Theory makes learning a bit monotonous and boring. Considering a subject like Science, where theory and practical are both important, learning becomes fun and easy if children learn its application in day-to-day life. Learning how to apply the theoretical aspects in everyday life is very important as there is no point learning just the theory and then not being able to use it anywhere. Chemistry is a subject which makes the practical part a lot of fun and easier to grasp if taught in a fun manner. Also practical work keeps a child’s brain active without knowing that they are studying.
At Hallmark Public School, we simply don’t aim to give educational information to students about each subject but also aim in making the students utilise the theory taught to them on everyday life. This way the students are able to expand their analytical and explorative skills. Children are the most inquisitive beings and are learning something new by putting up questions. We encourage students to ask as many questions they can and hence broaden their horizons. A subject like science is almost impossible to be taught without any practical lessons. Taking chemistry for example, starting from basic reaction that of rust is also understood well by students when shown.Reactions involved using several common powders such as corn starch, baking powder, baking soda, salt, etc make the learning more easy. Chemistry is best understood when shown.
To foster the same, a very basic experiment was conducted by students regarding the principle of floating and sinking. Children were provided with various objects and they were to put it in water, the light weight objects floated and the heavier ones sank. The learning became more clearer with this concept when they had hands on experience. The practical aspect of chemistry makes the students learn the concepts easily and they are able to remember it for a longer period of time.
