Science & Technology

The emphasis in the books is on the process of science - observing, asking questions, trying to find the answers through further observations and experiments - rather than on information that chil- dren are expected to memorize without any real understanding. Needless to add, it would be difficult to use this book meaningfully without doing the activities.

The aim of the Homi Bhabha primary science curriculum is to engage students and teachers together in a joyful and meaningful learning experience. The curriculum is built out of simple, thematically organised, activities and exercises. The TextBook, WorkBook and Teacher’s Book for each Class are meant to promote active learning in every sense. To use these books, students must get out of the mind-set of copying the correct answers from the blackboard or from other students. Small Science should not be just read, it should be done.

Primary school students, particularly in rural areas, have rich, interactive experiences of the natural world. But lacking systematisation and clear expression, their observations and skills do not contribute to school learning. Urban students from literate homes, on the other hand, are often encouraged to ignore their natural surroundings, and to concentrate on meaningless bookish learning.

Small Science Class 1 & 2 deals with the broad area of environmental studies. This Teacher's Book illustrates a few of the almost unlimited learning opportunities offered by our immediate environment. In these first two classes we should remain unconstrained by a definite set of topics; the idea is to simply open up possibilities for learning in everyday contexts.

Black Holes (BHs) are the standard-bearers of cool Physics. Pop culture is full of references to these objects that are so powerful that nothing can escape them. A lot of Physicists have spent their lives thinking about how BHs are formed, how they can be detected and what happens to objects that enter a BH.

Well Researched Study Material For CBSE Board Exam Class 10 & 12

I have been working for 2-3 years in education. Digital era is shaping the education in its own way. There are lots of websites, online tutors, Video tutorial. The Internet is full of information. But there is secret behind it. During my research I studied many online educational sites and review their study materials. Many of those websites aka educational sites so called educational platforms, are just money oriented not business oriented.

The activities in these handbooks developed by Centre For Environmental Education have been made to encourage students to observe and explore their environment; to understand relationships in nature, and between humans and nature; and to learn better how humans are an integral part of the intricate web of life. We believe that learning can be more fun, both for the student and the teacher, when based on real experiences.
