TO help us understand better the impact of germs/microbes that exist in our environment and the diseases they cause, the Science Centre has developed a series of activities in July for young learners of science. Check these out during the period of 14-26 July.
MANY science learning opportunities abound in everyday life. The many "laboratories" include your garden, kitchen, weather, night sky and the playground. Young children by nature are curious and love exploring their world. So you can take advantage of this inherent sense of wonder about their surroundings to instill a love for science.
ZACH devised a way to mount two tricycles together so that he and his buddy Etienne could ride together. Zach sat at the back and took a joy ride while he quipped to the front rider, "I don't have to ride to move!" Now what would have pleased every science teacher is that Zach is just five. By doing what he did, he had demonstrated his curiosity which is a
vital prerequisite to the learning of science.
AS mentioned before, verbs form one of the eight parts of speech. Most of us know that verbs refer to words indicating actions. But a verb is much more than that. It can express action (to do), refer to a current state of an action, or be a helper to another verb.
POOR people who cannot afford a professional architect try to use their common sense to build a house that is simple and ordinary but which suits their purpose. Those who are able to hire architects are able to make professional plans to build their house. But the bottomline is this: everyone must still have a plan, simple or no. For the learning of the English language, our plan or blueprint is called grammar.
