Science experiment models are a fun way to learn things. Sometimes just theoretical knowledge is not good enough to understand things clearly and that’s where science experiment models where practical knowledge is involved are useful. Infact children should
be encouraged towards conducting the science experiments in order to see things happening practically for themselves. Hands on learning certainly imbibe learning at a deeper level, than just theoretical knowledge. Infact I had once seen a lovely science experiment model made at a science fair in a school which showed how water reaches us. It was done very well taking care of every little detail, Infact some things I learnt from that model.
Science experiment models evoke practicing critical thinking, a spirit of enquiry. While you are working on the model imaginative thinking is experienced and you learn organisational skills. Additionally your communication skills also develop in a better fashion. As a learner you are able to preassess on what was being taught. Infact you must encourage an atmosphere of enquiry amongst the children and allow them to conduct small simple science experiments at home; like for instance some simple water based experiments that can be carried out in a glass too. We have done many such experiments at home, haven’t we?
When you encourage your children to carry out scientific experiments, a way to learn and understand concepts in Science in a way which is clearer is shown. It is not necessary that you spend loads amount of money to carry out these experiments, very simple experiments can be carried out at home without arranging for big items for experiment. A host of simple experiments can be found on the net for children to carry out in their homes. There are books also available which detail simple science experiments. Science experiment models are probably the best way to imbibe learning in children and foster a spirit of inquiry in them.
