I am linking up for Chapter 6 of Learn Like a Pirate with The Primary Gal! This book just keeps getting better and better!
I love this quote that Paul Solarz wrote at the beginning of Chapter 6- Active Learning!
As we all know or at least should know is that our students learn best by doing. We as teachers need to make learning fun! Now when we say fun, we do not mean just do activities because we think they are fun. There needs to be lessons to be learned and material that is meaningful.
When students participate in activities, they learn more and they are not afraid to take on other roles in the classroom.
How can we s teachers make learning more fun? This chapter gives us many great tips!
1. Stimulate thinking with Simulations: Create experiences. Don't just teach about the Ocean- teach as if you are at the ocean. Be an oceanographer!
2. Teach using Debates- Get them involved- let them show their passion! This will definitely increase their leaning of the topic!
3. Have a Fair- Science Fairs, Math Fairs, STEM or STEAM fairs- this is a great way to get them involved as well as their families
4. Project Based Learning-
