This month's Teaching Tip comes from Plan-Develop-Display-Present Science Projects.
Participation in a science project provides exciting and challenging learning experiences for students. It allows them to investigate a problem of interest and to share their enthusiasm and results with others. Students are naturally curious and tend to ask questions like, "Why does that work?" and "How does that work?" The science project gives students an opportunity to identify an interesting problem and a chance to carry out an investigation to solve it. While doing their investigative projects, students build self-esteem and self-confidence. They gain knowledge, and they develop science process and critical-thinking skills. These skills and this knowledge will help them identify and creatively solve daily problems, as well as live more comfortably and successfully in a changing world.
The following helpful and positive actions will be most appreciated by your child and by the teacher:
