[Highlight]

[Unit Of Inquiry]

Learners explored deeper into the topic Ã¢â‚¬ËœMaterialsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ by watching a video on Ã¢â‚¬ËœPhysical and ChemicalÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ changes. They were divided into groups called Ã¢â‚¬ËœThinkersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœInquirersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœReflectorsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢, Ã¢â‚¬ËœCommunicatorsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and Ã¢â‚¬ËœListenersÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ in order to gather their understanding on physical and chemical changes. All through the discussion they were able to compare and contrast with the help of instances from the video as well as their everyday experiences, on the changes substances undergo. Some of the learners were able to reason and reflect on their ambiguity around temporary and permanent changes and were able to confidently explain by the end of the video. To sum up the session, their responses were recorded on a chart paper using a Ã¢â‚¬ËœT-DiagramÃ¢â‚¬â„¢.

Here are few glimpses of the same :
