Sir Angel this is Doris Afunggol Carolino one of the science teachers of qes. We have just finished giving the 1st P.T. Our pupils are doing the Item Analysis, preparing their portfolio and there will be no classes on Monday so I find it the perfect time to communicate with you. Mam Lily is always encouraging us to use the computer lab and its equipments in teaching different subjects especially Science subject.We are very positive about the use of computers, internet, LCD etc. and I strongly believe that qes teachers are diligent , dedicated and open for innovations. It's just that most of the time we find it really hard to manage our schedule. We truly appreciate your genuine concern and love for us.
Anyway I'll be having my lessons about common household materials next week (ex. pesticides, insecticides, soap, paint, solvent, synthetic and plastic). Can you help me find a perfect presentation for this topic. It will be my second time to use the lab this school year. I forgot to tell you about the first one.The lesson was about the nervous system.It's just that I found the level, terminologies, scope etc. too high for the pupils. I hope you can find a better one for elementary pupils .
Bye for now and til next time.Regards to your wife and to your baby. Baka naiinip na mga estudyante ko.



Very Happy

I will not be able to provide you with a "perfect" presentation, but I will provide you with some materials that you may be able to use to create your own presentation.

Learn about chemicals in your house: A guided tour from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

http://www.epa.gov/kidshometour/tour.htm#view

A virtual house tour from the World Wildlife Fund

http://www.virtualhouse.org/

Chemical Days from Denmark

Do's and Don'ts Around the Home

-----------------------


The nervous system is one of the most complicated systems of the human body. It will be normally difficult to find material that you would find as not challenging on this topic. "Challenging" is not bad especially when the challenge comes from the fact that it is "new" to you and your pupils. This is the important ingredient in teaching - we learn something new.

You could see in the following link that the nervous system is studied at Grade 6-8 (This is probably equivalent to 2nd year high school in the Philippines):

http://www.sciencenetlinks.com.....m?DocID=53

And if you examine the US elementary curriculum, they usually begin with the five senses first before going into the overall picture of the nervous system. I am confident that if you look at the five senses' lesssons in this forum - you will find material that maybe within reach of your pupils:

See(Eye)
http://www.paete.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=808

Touch(Skin)
http://www.paete.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=936

Smell(Nose)
http://www.paete.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=934

Good luck. And thank you for finding innovative ways to teach the children of Paete. "Batang Paete" refer to all of us because we all have plenty to learn.

Your science topics are much interesting and enlightening. They sure open our minds and help most of our students in need for their studies. However, most of your subject matters need the basic understanding and knowledge before one could fathom their real meaning. If I could suggest and you will have the time and willingness to teach us on the basics, like Chemistry , I think it will be more fruitful and more useful for the students. Say, one topic will discuss on Atoms, molecules and matter, then the Periodic table of elements, Mole, Bonding, Chemical formula and how to balance those Equations, Gases, Stoichemistry, etc . Step by step, I am sure, those basics of Chemistry will stimulate more students and would benefit more from your lectures since you are the authority on this very subject. Thank you for all your efforts.

Dear Prof Angel,

I know I haven't been in touch with you kasi po nahihiya ako sa inyo. Last year po kasi I handled Physics and Chemistry, di ko po masyadong nagamit ang mga binigay nyong books and multimedia. I had my hands full because I concentrated on my Physics lessons. But now I'm handling my major Biology and Chemistry, and I promised myself that I'll slowly make better use of them. Kaya lang po hirap ako na gamitin ang multimedia dahil po wala kaming projector for this. Nakakahiya man po maaari nyo po ba kaming tulungan sa bagay na ito? I tried to find other means of securing one for this purpose but I was not lucky enough.

Science lessons in this forum are given as weekend research assignment of my students. Mostly I ask them to find specific information preferably pictures with short captions, slide presentation and videos. Then we post them on a bulletin board for other students to take notice. The school science club, Proton Troopers is being utilized to initiate projects to encourage students to like science and guide them into choosing a science career in the future.

I hope you and your family are in the best of health as always. Thank you for being supportive to the school science program.

PostPosted: Mon Aug 06, 2007 9:54 am    Post subject: A conversation with a PES teacher on science lessons Reply with quote

Teaching science goes further than just transferring info. We take advantage of a simple question and try to bring the main concepts of science, which basically outlines a way of thinking. Teaching science is teaching students a particular method of thinking.

"What do animals eat?" is a simple question. Answering this question directly only provides information. But if we try to show our students that such question leads us to diversity and a web of relationships, then we begin to do science....

How are you Sir Angel? I'm Ms. Aileen Padallan a
primary teacher from Paete Central School when we
first met. But as of Monday I was reassigned and
transfered to Grade 5. I am presently handling the
pilot section and still on the process of adjustment.
It's my first time to teach Science subject. I know
you're the right person to ask regarding this matter.
Could you please post a lesson that deals with animals
and the food they eat? I started using my own
powerpoint presentation to my class just this week and
I can see in their faces that they are seriously
listening, watching and at the same time, learning. My
first lesson is about the Urinary System but we
immediately started the next unit which is about
animals to be able to finish the budget of work for
the first grading. My pupils told me it's their first
time to see that kind of presentation in Science (even
if it's just a simple one). I'm on the process of
reviewing my pupils for the First Periodical Test this
coming August 9 and 10. So please if you could extend
a bit of your help before the said date, I will really
appreciate it! Thanks Sir Angel and God bless you and
you're family.

Angel replies:

That's good.

With your permission, I would like to post our correspondence in the
science lessons forum.

Your question is an example of how one topic could actually lead to
the basic concepts in science. We ask, "what do animals eat?" And in
the process, we find a web of relationship between different animals,
plants, and the world we live in.

it'll be a great pleasure Sir Angel. I just saw your
e-mail add in my inbox that's why I sent you an e-mail
direct to your inbox also and not in usap forum.
Again, my sincerest thanks!

PostPosted: Tue Aug 07, 2007 8:26 am    Post subject: Info on PEMQMNHS Science department Reply with quote

Dear Prof Angel,

1. The Division Environmenta Science Camp is scheduled on Aug 24-25 in Nagcarlan with the theme: Agham at Teknolohiya para sa Kalikasan. Activvities include Extemporaneous Speech, On-the-spot Essay writing (English and Filipino), G. at Bb. Kalikasan, Jingle/Yell making, Environmental Quizbee, Environmental Trail among others.
The Science Club, PROTON TROOPERS is in charge for the necessary preparations.

2. Also by Oct CHOWKING's Quizbee (on Math and Science subject only) is to be held. Cash prizes are at stake that the school can use for further development.

At this point can you give us a list of links/suggestions where the contestants can gain more knowledge to better prepare them for these activities?

3. I already have a list of email adds of my students and this weekend they will be reviewing the topics below. Science lessons forum will be utilized.

Biology- branches of biology, foreign and Filipino biologists, Microscope parts and manipulation, Cell parts, kinds and other details, biotechnology and scientific method.

Chemistry- branches of chemistry, foreign and Filipino chemists, math in chemistry (significant figures, scientific notation and conversion), classification of matter, scientific method and chemical technology.

4. The 1M Anilag prize will be used for the construction of a 2 classroom building where one is proposed to be the science laboratory room of the school. Will update you as soon as construction starts.

5. Several glasswares were donated, chemicals and equipment supplies arrived from DepEd, and some others were purchased using a part of your cash donation last year.

6. I am conducting remedial classes in chemistry this week. 24 students initially came today to attend.

Could you please give suggestion on how to conduct review/remedial using the forum/links?

Thanks for your time.

Dear Prof Angel,

Welcome back to your forum. I was wondering kung bakit kayo tahimik sa mga forums dito sa USAP, then I read about your battle to break the smoking habit. Tough decision but admirable especially with your adorable kid to look up to you as he grows.

Anyway I just want you to know that we now have a laptop for the PEMQMNHS science department. Other subject teachers are also welcome to use this in their lessons. All of our students contributed a certain amount just to have this for use in our classes. Some amount came from the donation you gave the school 2 years ago. It's all gone now.

Hope we can now maximize the use of the links in any subject area available here in USAP and in the web in our lessons. It would be nice to have it connected via LAN with the rest of the computers here in School. I'll try to arrange for it next week.

And so we are now in the process of preparing student reports in PPT using it.

Mhel
