Science in My Everyday Life- 'Show And Tell'
"Show and Tell' is a very common and effective learning tool for development of public speaking skills. It not only develops the confidence of children but also helps them look deeper into things that might seem quite ordinary otherwise.
This activity was taken in class as we had finished our plan and still had 2 more periods. I thought of utilizing the time and learn en route. Children were asked to pick up any object from inside the classroom and describe it relating to Science.

……. as always children amazed me with their responses.
Chaitanya Nair with her ecofriendly, biodegaradable notebook, made out of waste sugarcane pulp.
Parth Goyal picked up the class’s ‘Birthday-flowerpot’ and spoke, at length, about the importance of flowers and trees in our life. He ended his talk with a social message ‘plant more and more trees’.
Prutha Bhalerao- "This is a pencil. It is made of wood. I write with it." She received a thunderous applause from her friends.
Pranav Kharbanda picked up the chair on which he was sitting and spoke about the materials it is made up of, its design, how it supports our back etc. etc.
Anant said- “Ye meri pani ki botal hai, ye plastic ki hai, plastic achcha nahi hota lekin pani bahut achcha hota hai, pani hamare liye bahut zaroori hota hai".
It was indeed a great session of “Show and tell”. :)
