How are Experiland’s e-books applicable to me as a teacher?
“I listen and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” — Unknown
For the young science student, science experiments are an awesome part of science that allows them to engage in cool and exciting hands on learning experiences that they are sure to enjoy and remember! By working through our science experiments, they will learn about science in the best possible way – by doing things themselves. Sure, they can learn a lot in science class or by doing their homework, but there’s nothing quite as much fun as learning by getting their hands dirty by doing some fun science experiments!
Responsible and safe teaching
As a teacher, you have a real challenging job! As a science teacher, you are responsible for helping young students with their science projects and guide your students to success. At the same time, you also want to infuse in them a real understanding, admiration, even a passion for science. The rewards of teaching science are undeniable! Every student that is busy with scientific investigation is in fact a scientist that you are busy training. When students are taking part in science experiments, they learn about the scientific method, they pose questions and analyse results. Science experiments are an excellent tool for developing critical thinking skills that kids can apply throughout their lives in future.
Science experiments should be enjoyable, interesting, and thought-provoking, but most importantly, they should be safe to do! Experiland makes every effort to provide tried and tested science experiment & project ideas that are safe and fun for students to do. It is nonetheless, every teacher’s responsibility to supervise their students whilst performing our science experiments and to choose only the experiments that they deem to be safe to do in their own classrooms. Each of our experiments indicates whether it can be done by kids alone or if it should be done under a teacher’s supervision.
From young student to adulthood
At Experiland, our aim is to educate and improve the learning experience for young science students while, at the same time, instilling a sense of responsible and safe acting. Our projects will help develop science skills by allowing students to classify objects, make calculated observations, think laterally, and recording data accurately. Students are taught reputable values and respect for life and that interference with ecological systems and natural processes should not occur thoughtlessly and rather be avoided as far as possible!
Each of our science projects is specifically designed for a certain target grade ranging from projects for grade 1 students to grade 8. A project introduction and background, complete listing of required materials, step-by-step instructions on how to carry out the project, why it works, learn more section, as well as a science glossary with all the relevant terms make up each of the all-inclusive science projects in our books.
The approaching science fair
Teachers are busier than ever…with so many extra-mural activities that are presented to the children these days, you hardly have any time to prepare the next lesson! To make matters worse, as a science teacher, your science fair responsibilities come on top of everything else you need to do! How do you manage everything along with all the other curriculum requirements, as well as getting your students interested in the science fair?
Fortunately, the science experiments in our books can serve as inspiration and a good starting point for ideas for successful science fair projects for your students. Our exciting science projects not only demonstrate good scientific practice, they can also give you the edge for a first-prize project! The experiments are neatly categorized by the time required to complete and they range from taking only a couple of hours to projects that may require up to a month to complete. With over 300 experiments, our science books serve as a complete guide of hands-on and step-by-step project information and other stuff you need to know to teach young science students, communicate with their parents, and prepare for a successful science fair!
