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.

M3/12 Testing their Spring Balance

Using the spring balance M3/12 students are asked to demonstrate how to use the spring balance. Next is to let them determine the change in weight before and after using the spring balance. And finally, to let them calculate the buoyant force.

During the experiment, all groups showed their excitement and curiosity to try on how to use the spring balance using variety of weights  such as clay, pebbles, and sand.

Another, Science bonding for M3/12. Doing experiment like this at least make a tedious Science class fun an interesting to students.

Weekly Dose of M3/12 Group Reporting

Impromptu Group Reporting – The new trend in our MEP 3/12 classroom. It has become part of the M3/12 routine to do the impromptu group reporting every week. This English classroom dose will help students to develop their speed in designing paper presentation about the given topic.

Not only that, this will also encourage teamwork in every group  and avoid dependence from one member. With the  activity’s target which is to evaluate the level of  the passage comprehension of the group it would be now very easy for students to relate to the reading passage. At the same time, good for teachers too, because teachers can clearly see and monitor the group performance of the group and its member. In this case, the teacher can clearly evaluate student’s contribution of the activity.

But most importantly, it will help the students to develop quick thinking, organizing and designing which is necessary for them in every way.
