Making science relevant in students’ learning is an important aspect of science education. This involves the ability to draw in examples from daily contexts to begin with the learning or to apply concepts learnt into familiar everyday phenomena that students observe and experience around them. Another important aspect of science education is the integration of practical work in students’ learning. Both these aspects of learning actively engage students in their own construction of understanding… CONTINUE READING
