"As the questions in the science exam today become more challenging and demanding, it is evident that mere textbook knowledge will not suffice. Apart from content knowledge, what else will be necessary for your child to understand, analyse and interpret questions, find solutions and apply relevant knowledge in the correct manner so that he/she can confidently handle the Science paper?
The answer lies in the problem-solving method.
The term ""problem-solving"" is commonly associated with maths, but you'd be surprised to know that problem-solving skills are required in science too. Problem-solving in science enables students to learn new information by expounding theories and solutions through trial-and-error. The need for problem-solving in science also develops relevant 21st-century skills in children, which enables them to be independent and self-assured learners.
Through this workshop, you will learn:
• What the problem-solving method of teaching Science is
• How it creates an active learner out of your child and enhances his/her process skills
• Creative and interesting hands-on experiments and activities that involve your child and you
• How you can incorporate problem-solving in your daily lives with your child
• How problem-solving helps with answering higher-order exam questions
This workshop is suitable for parents with children in primary 3 to 5.
