Self-Assessment 9th grade

The children of 9th grade were given a self-assessment ‘test’ to make them understand where they are. 4 questions were given on the chapters that they had been working on so far(logarithm and scientific notation). The children were allowed to discuss among them. They graded themselves. We didn’t ask them for marks or how they performed. They would have known it themselves. ┬áIt was just a reminder on what they are required to know.DSC_0685 DSC_0684

Stewardship for New Emergence 2016 – Stage I

All Aura Auro team members are attending the Stewardship Workshop this. Some of us have already done satge I of this course. Arun and Naveen are attending it fresh. The session one is over. My biggest realization of session 1 has been the clarity that has come now which was somewhat missing from last years. I got know that I have more ‘fears’ also which I couldn’t also realize last time I did the course. All is well ‘fears’ gives me an opportunity to work from my possibilities.

Compression and Expansion of air

Along with the sixth graders in Udavi we did an experiment that indicated on how air behaves in various pressures. All we needed was a syringe, and a balloon. and we got started. The children took the balloon and kept it inside the syringe and gave pressure. They noticed that the balloon shrunk in size.

This they concluded was because of the intense pressure it created to the captured air.

 

 

Then they expanded the air and saw that the balloon drastically increased in size, and this was due to expansion of air and created low pressure.
