After deciding on which teaching approach or teaching strategy to use, I would now go for the subject choosing. I plan to go for the topic of WATER for year 2 students and I found an interesting BLOG on SCIENCE! It’s ScienceBlogs.com. Do check it out! One of the latest blogposts is about the WORLD WATER DAY (22nd of March) which caught my attention in clicking into it. I guess this could one of my introductory lessons or even essential question to stimulate children’s interest.
For me, it is always so important to teach our children to value, respect, and, above all, not to waste water. It must be taught from the very young age! In the Teach Kids About Water, it provides me a few activities whereby children can practice at home to SAVE WATER, of course, it requires the help from their parents. Besides, there are also a few FUN WATER FACTS such as there is 97.5% of the worlds’ water is salt water – only 2.5% is freshwater (Bradford, 2013).
