By cutting the end of a straw you can create a reed instrument that you can actually play a tune on. You can also learn some things about the science of sound and music.

Also look at this video to make a reed based flute only with straws. Looks simple but you need to try this with your students.

Errors should not be viewed as a setback but as an opportunity to learn more about the student's thought processes. Correcting errors to get the right product instead of analysing the learning trajectory is a quick fix that does not nurture deep learning Very often, errors are caused by over-generalisation of rules which are transmitted to the student as short-cuts to getting the required answer.

Press fit a long plastic pen tube in a bottle lid. Press a hard straw on the rim for blowing. Stretch a torn balloon on the lid to make a taut membrane. Push the pen from below to touch the membrane. Now on blowing through the straw you will hear loud sound. The vibrating membrane will produce the sound.

What is the true role of education in a person’s life? Besides imparting knowledge and skills, it also acts as a conduit to infuse good values in a person to become a good human being with a strong character and take decisions for the benefit of society and humanity. Sri Aurobindo Society’s Zero Investment Innovations for Education Initiatives (ZIIEI) not only focuses on the academic growth of children but it also emphasises on their holistic development so that they grow up to be good thinkers and leaders.

Press fit a stiff straw near the base of a stiff plastic bottle. Now place a balloon in the bottle and stretch its mouth on the bottle. On sucking from the stiff straw the balloon will inflate inside the bottle. Fill the balloon with water and screw the lid. The lid has a thin stiff straw). Open the lower straw end. The balloon will shrink and water will gush out into a beautiful fountain.

Taking short breaks allows us to maintain focus on a task, a study outlined on the University of Illinois’ News Bureau explains. We often expect children to concentrate on a lesson for an hour or more, and get frustrated when they lose focus.

Questions question our understanding of concepts, situations and ideas. There is no question about this. This is an account of the way one teacher, Kinzom Khampa, used the tool of enquiry to get children find the answers.

Curriculum designed around use and advocacy of natural building materials for an open learning centre in rural /tribal spaces.

Material: Mud/ Bamboo/ stones Objective to use these materials:

Outer Space and celestial bodies are something that fascinates everyone, including children. Many countries invest lot of time and resources in exposing children to space research. Space exploration can also serve as a stimulus for children to enter the fields of science and engineering. How should we begin with at the school level?
