Viewing Xylem and Phloem

For M1/12 lesson on xylem and phloem, students viewed slides of the different vascular tissues under the microscope. At first each group arranged their working tables, microscopes and extension wires. Then, they prepared their notes, pens and colored pencils for the drawing in today’s activity.

Each microscopes mounted a specific slide of Monocot (Stem, Leaf, Root) and Dicot (Stem, Leaf, Root) everybody’s objective is to view and differentiate the xylem and phloem of dicot and monocot plant.

Each members of the group must view the slide and complete the experiment questions and tasks on their notebooks.

It was indeed another fun day in Science, everyone got the chance to view different slides. Another day another learning for our M1/12 MEP.

M1/12 on Tom Sawyer’s Adventure

Today, students of M1/12 get to work as a group on summarizing Chapter 1 of Tom Sawyer’s Adventure. In this activity, students must work together as a team to create a handwritten or drawn presentation in the class about the story of Tom Sawyer.

The materials that they used in this activity are re-use paper, colored pencils, adhesive tape and book.

Using their ready-materials they are tasked to do the following: 1. Re-use Paper #1 -Write the Title of the Chapter to be summarized, 2. Re-use Paper #2- Make a table of three columns and 6 rows. Then, from Chapter 1 choose 5 difficult vocabularies write it on the first column of the table, Thai Translation on the second column and the grammar function on the last. 3. Re-use Paper #3-#5, in these pages the groups must draw a picture that will show the summary of what they understand from the story.

When time was up, groups presented their work and tell their own version of Chapter 1: Tom and Friends in front of the class.

Creating Lung Model

This is the picture footage of M2/12 in their Lung Model experiment. Groups in the class were tasked to create a lung model out of the materials (balloon, straw, pipe, rubber band and plastic bottle).

Understanding Cells

In this activity M1/12 were tasked to create a 2D model of the Animal Cells and Plant Cells. At first, they took pictures of the re-use materials needed in completing the experiment.

Groups drew on what cell model to make. In groups, they laid on their respective tables the re-use materials they brought with them which are to be utilized in the making of the parts of the cells.

Having said that, some groups made nucleus out of plastic bottles cap, mitochondria from thread and others.

When groups’ work were done, they were asked to present and explain their work in front of the class followed by a Q&A from their teacher.

At the end of the experiment, students will be able to appreciate the beauty, importance and value of their effort in making the models. But most of all, they will be able to  make memories and a real-life group experience in making the cell model.

Viva Test on Microscope

M1/12 today had their oral test about the different parts of the microscope. Not only that, today was also their first day of wearing their laboratory gown. Everyone was excited and everyone was looking cool!

Let’s see the Viva’s behind-the-scenes.

For starter: Teacher and Co-teacher helped students on their quick review of the microscope parts.

Each group also concentrated on mastering the different parts in order to get remarkable points.

With the help of the teachers and with the students amazing teamwork the viva test ended very well and most groups familiarized the microscope’s part in super flying colors.

Newton’s Third Law of Motion

M3/12 presented their own version of “For every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction.” Groups showed their different real-life examples of action-reaction situation.

Other groups also showed superb presentation work and flawless power points.

Some groups also demonstrated fun action and reaction moments that brought joy to everyone and making the class alive.
