Nowadays every source is available online, but still why children are going to school. To learn things in the best environment. Hence it is the duty of educational institutions and the instructors to give the best education with understanding the concepts clearly. With the theory classes and examinations alone will not make a student better. When it comes to science then it still needs to take some efforts to provide a better understanding of concepts to the students. The middle school science learning is very important unless they learn in lower classes it is hard for them to understand them in higher education. When they get into higher classes they need a lot of basics from lower classes to understand the concepts clearly.
The hands-on learning makes them understand learn concepts quickly. But even hands-on science should not be done by just following the steps and getting results. Learning science is not like cooking to just follow the steps and worst, it gives only the bad results at the end. By doing this it does not give any learning experience and then inhibits the development of science skills. We should inspire kids by creating curiosity and providing tools to do real science. We should not help them directly to get a result, you can just monitor and making themselves to discover the things.
Kids will always look for answers to their questions every day, it is important to engage them with some curiosity to learn science. Providing tools in the classroom as well as home will make them learn better. Rather than assigning written work to the students, teachers can assign them to work by doing activities. The kids will do the work interestingly without getting bored. Of course, the children do mistakes while doing hands-on, but you should not stop them to work with it.
Many science inventions are made only after many failures. Hence make the kids analyze what mistakes they have done, why it doesn’t work and what should be replaced. By finding answers to the question the kid will automatically produce results. This is also the best way of learning to the kids by making mistakes and persevering to try it again. With all this, the children learn middle school science not just with love of learning but also the skills to make them learn more every day. Undeniably, the hands-on experiment will develop the student’s skills.
