Students enjoy hands-on learning especially in Science but we also have the prioritized foundational learning approaches such as an integration of simple to abstract readings that enhance concepts and processes to be explored in a standard-based core class. Students appreciate a classroom that applies manipulation of tools such as the limited instruments that our school has, i.e., microscopes, triple beam balances, and other glassware, etc. I try to maintain and repair whatever is available and I also share with two other science classes which are not equipped at all. They enjoy the steps and rules of procedure as a way of instilling their ability to "discover" through hands-on approaches.
Some of these tools will really enhance our level of confidence in doing sincere science projects and evaluating our learning even more than paper handouts and scripted readings.
Students appreciate opportunities for paired and/or cooperative learning environments through the sharing of tools and kits all the while helping each other grow socially and understanding the foundation of literal science where objects are analyzed and observed.
For example, by using small portable microscopes alongside the authentic ones, will be a way of teaching and learning the different qualities of the tools.
Density measurements are also so much better with organized and prepared kits that can then be supplemented with at-home products such as blocks of different types of wood.
