Science M2/12: Separation Technique

M2/12 experimented on different separation techniques; Magnet Attraction and D.I.Y. Water Filtration.

For filtration technique, students tried on using a simple do it yourself technique of filtering cloudy and muddy water. With the use of simple and easy to find materials; gavel, sand, pebbles, charcoal, white cloth, filter paper and re-use plastic bottles. As a result they were able to produce different color filtrates, some are very clear and others remained cloudy.

 

As for magnet attraction, all groups used U-magnet but of several materials  used on demonstrating the technique some used  mix of sand and paper clips whilst others used  styrofoam balls and clips.

The Flower Experiment

M1/12 Science groups conducted the flower experiment on understanding and identifying the parts of a flower. In fact, it is one of the most interesting experiments that every M1/12 students must do.

Each group brought with them their own pick of flowers, laid it on the table for all members to study and get familiar with.

Students were occupied on dissecting the flowers’ parts and prepared to tape it on their notebook as an illustration and properly labelled.

AS to finishing the experiment, students made a table on their notebook listing the identified parts as well as writing their specific functions.

“The Heart” Clay Model

Understanding how our heart works is one of the basic content that every M2/12 must study. And part of this subject is to create a mock model of the heart using clay. Let’s see how did they do with their models.

Wow! Not bad for the most complicated organ of the human systems. Good job M2/12! Now, its time for their model presentation. The objective, to identify all the different functions and parts of their model.

Viewing Unicellular and Multi-cellular Organisms

M1/12 Science Hype is non-stop. Another microscope experiment for them today! Plus they get the chance to work on their experiemnt in the newly set-up laboratory of our school.

Groups, tried viewing their slides using the microscope. The content focus is to let the student identify the slides whether it is unicellular organism or multi-cellular organism, and of course what kind of organism is it.

With this activity, students of M1/12 were also given the chance to do the hands-on in viewing and focusing the slides. They have to use their microscope skills in finding or viewing the slides. In fact, some were successful in finding the slides and some are not.

But as a whole, the whole activity was indeed fun and informative as always. Keep it up M1/12.

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.
