23 Apr Chemistry for Kids
Are you worried that your child hates Chemistry? Tried looking for a way to make your child love the subject but couldn’t find the perfect solution? At Miracle Learning Centre we feel proud to say that our students love Chemistry. Many parents came to us to find out a solution to make their child interested in the subject. At Miracle Learning Centre we sat with a group of leading chemistry teachers of Singapore and after long hours of discussion figured out a new teaching model to make students fall in love with the subject. This process is filled with games, activities, fact check and many other exciting characteristics.
Not just a subject introduced in middle school, chemistry starts from the early years of school. Even kindergarten kids are given pictorial representations in the form of cartoons that interest them and catch their attention. Generally during early years kids tend to grasp a lot more than the ability to learn when they reach their teenage years. Terms such as junior scientists are used to motivate and encourage young children. Nowadays, teachers find it mandatory to make parents understand to practice science tutoring at home as well. Chemistry tuition can only be attained when the subject is introduced at secondary school.
Learning starts from home! Science increases on the observation skills and problem-solving skills of the child. Thus, if introduced from an early age, the child tends to get more curious and never stops questioning. Kids are generally very inquisitive, and their curiosity just tends to increase if all their questions are answered at school and at home.
Children are taught simple experiments at primary school. For example, a simple baking soda experiment which involves baking soda mixed with vinegar that produces a fizz that excites children. It is even more fun when washing liquid is combined as the fizz doubles and so does the amazement on the child’s face. They tend to get more intrigued with physical experiments.
The real basis of chemistry is explained to them only when theyget to learning about the subject at school. Kindergarten and primary school just get them more interested into trying new experiments. Gaming zones at malls have designated areas for kids where they demonstrate certain experiments that children and their parents can try at home. School teachers provide a list of things that children can accumulate and make their own homemade science kit. Science is a playful subject after all!
