In the EVS session, we learned how to integrate science with Mathematics, Arts, and Literature for lower grade students. This type of teaching would enable students to engage both their left and right brain which indeed will make them engage with the subject more practically and store information in their long-term memory. We discussed and learned about mammals. In which we discussed dog family.
Characteristic of Canidae family:
- Canids are basically vertebrates, warm-blooded, mammals, and carnivores
- They have 2 forelegs, 2 hind legs, and bushy tail
- 5 toes on forefoot 5 toes on hind-foot
- They have elongated skull
- They have a great sense of smelling and hearing
Animals under Canidae family:
- African Wild Dog
Mathematics and Literature
We sang a numerical poem about dogs that had increase and decrease in numbers as we proceed to the next stanza. With this, we could integrate language and mathematics by teaching students English poems along with ascending order and descending order.
Making Paper dog
This creative method of integrated learning makes teaching and learning fun and effective. We could also integrate Social science and History with this by telling students about the evolution of dogs.
