Class 6-8

While studying Social Sciences, students should be able to understand contemporary social issues as well as their experiences in the classroom and be able to link it all up with the subject. There is not just one way of evaluation. What is important to see is to what depth children have understood the topic and if they have been able to see its linkages to their daily life. If they are able to articulate their views in writing, related as they are to their experience, this would be fulfilling the objectives of education.

If real learning has to happen in children in the classroom, a good preparation on the part of the teacher is a must. We teachers need to know what kind of preparation is necessary. It’s always better to think ‘How does the child learn?’, rather than thinking ‘How to teach the child?’, because the child learns only when he is ready to learn by himself. There is no end to learning, education is a continuous process. While learning in school is one stage, adopting the same in life is another stage.

Mosquitoes, the buzzing, biting & annoying insects are one of the oldest species that have seen us through since ages. Not necessarily a malaria or a dengue patient, but anyone who forgot to secure the mosquito net  properly will testify their struggle with a it. Read out more on them.

 

On face of it, they indeed are EVS activities. When you scratch the surface, you will notice so many other interesting themes (like, surveying, map making, presenting data, creating workable models and prototyping) that come handy in other subjects, emerge on the sidelines of the content explored. Try them out.

 

Introduction

Seeing is believing, they say. To see it better we need mirrors and lenses. Here's a story of that and a crossword to solve as an added bonus. Use this resource before you start the chapter on 'Light'.

This module is about soaps and detergents. We thought that since you use them in your daily life, it might be fun to find out more about them and do some experiments using them! The module is divided into three parts. In the first part we look at why we need soap and how it works. In the second part we look at why we need detergents and how they are different from soaps and finally in the third part we explore the effects of using detergents on the environment.

This kit aims to give physical significant of various units. Due to resource constraint, I have included only 9 physical quantities’ units in the kit. You can use this kit for students of class 6th till class 9th. Older students or adults can also use it if they want to understand these units better. This guide gives you details on what all there is in the kit and how to use it.
