Understanding the Scientific Method through Drama and Movement: Grade 6

Aj. Sam and A.Mala are helping Grade 6 understand the concepts associated with the Scientific Method through a combination of movement and drama. By expressing things like ‘Independent Variable’ and ‘Cause and Effect’ through this kinesthetic approach the Grade 6 students have a solid grasp of this most important set of concepts. The students then create a digital book in which they express their ‘creative experiment’ in scientific terms.

A.Sam has long used methodology like this in her teaching, but both her and A.Mala were inspired by our recent Artwork visitors. It was wonderful to see joyful and effective learning taking place. Thank you too A.Mala and A.Sam for planning such engaging experiences for the Grade 6 scientists.
