Physics activities/competitions help the students to think from a different perspective. Science is different because the answers to scientific questions are not found in a textbook or through pondering high and lofty thoughts but are the result of the careful collection and analysis of laboratory evidence. In order to test the practical knowledge of the basic concepts, Physics activity was organized for Grade- IX at Presidium. It generated intense interest in the students. The aim of conducting this activity was to enhance the practical knowledge of students. Students learned about Graphical Representation of Motion through Distance- Time and Velocity- Time Graph. It was indeed an interesting and educational experience for the students of the Presidium.
We, at Presidium, organized an activity in English class named “WORD FUN” for grade 2. Through this activity, students came to know about making many small different words out of one big word. In this activity, students prepared charts showing a big word in cloud shape and small words in the shape of the drop. For example, if the big word taken is “INTERESTING,” then the small words made are: in, ring, sing, set, rest, etc. This way students have learned to make different meaningful words from a single word. While doing this activity, all students were full of energy and zeal.
Addition is the first big mathematical step after early learners build basic number sense. And like all first steps, it can be tough to take. Using countable manipulative (physical objects) will make addition concrete and much easier to understand. Students respond well to visual tools that help them understand the concept of addition. Any easily handled object may be used, from beads or blocks to candies n chocolates. So to learn and explore the concept of Addition students of Presidium represented addition and subtraction with objects and actions independent of what’s being counted. Counting on fingers is the most intuitive place to start before you transition to tokens, bottle caps, or paper cutouts, pencils, marbles, etc.
Presidium School orchestrated an activity in the TBL class named “Formation of Constellations” for students of Grade 3. By this aspect, young learners came to recognize stars in the sky and the pattern they formulate. In this activity, learners prepared flashcards, on each flashcard, they pasted star-shaped stickers and joined them with sketch pens to notice the shape they formed. Moreover, at the back of each flashcard, the pupils have written the name of each constellation. Likewise, four constellations namely, Orion, Great Bear, Ursa Major, and Delphinus were formed and decorated. All the students were full of energy and zeal while performing the activity. Through this activity, students were exposed to Art Integrated and Observational Learning.
Every addition to true knowledge is an addition to human power. Addition is the first math skill most students learn and mastering, in addition can be the first step towards a long-lasting appreciation of Math. To inculcate these skills in students, activity on the Addition of 4- digit numbers using Dienes blocks were conducted in Grade 3. Dienes Blocks are concrete representations of numbers that are in exact proportion to each other, so they can represent all powers of tens, such as ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands. They help our budding mathematicians to understand the relationship between place value columns. The activity helped them understand the relationships between numbers and how quantities relate to one another. By doing this activity, their basic concept of addition got clear in a very interesting and innovative manner.
