Activity

‘Volcanic Eruption’ activity was conducted in Almighty Public school where students learnt how volcanoes erupt and the way magma comes out of the earth.

This week Junior Almightians created model volcanoes during the Activity Period for Active Planet. The students built their volcanoes with recycled materials and paper mâché techniques. On the final day of the project, the group used a fun and safe chemical reaction to simulate a volcanic eruption.

This hands-on activity gave the students a chance to be creative and imaginative while they reexamined knowledge they acquired about volcanoes and other natural disasters. It proved to be a wonderful way to tie the unit’s lessons together and link them under the umbrella of the overall theme.

Throughout the Active Planet unit, the students learned about Earth’s tectonic plates and how small changes can have enormous effects around the world. The lesson delved into information on earthquakes, tsunamis, and of course, volcanoes. For example, the students looked at the technical language surrounding volcanoes.
“It’s important to remember that volcanoes can be dangerous,” Class 4th student Aayush said.

The students also studied fault lines and invented protective suits for a volcanologist. Plus, they learned about real volcanic eruptions and other natural disasters that made significant impacts throughout history, which helped them to consider the importance of environmental conservation today.

“I think it’s interesting that volcanoes have three stages—active, dormant, and extinct,” Class 5th student kanishka said.
For the construction phase of the in-person project, the students first crumpled recycled newspaper into balls and glued them around a recycled water bottle to create a structure for their model volcano. Next, they made an eco-friendly paste from flour and water. Afterward, the students cut strips of newspaper, dipped them in the paste, and placed them on top of the structure.
The project was a lesson in patience and persistence. When it was time to wait for the volcanoes to dry, some students expressed how eager they felt to see the results and move to the next step, so the teachers encouraged them to be patient and channel their enthusiasm into the next day’s work.
“Our students are resilient, and their imaginative spirit is powerful. They work as creatively as ever and find unique ways to be successful,” Science Teacher said.

While observing social-distancing guidelines, the students found creative ways to collaborate. For instance, students discussed ideas on the most durable way to build the structure and the most skillful way to paint the outer shell.

On the final day of the project, science took center stage when the students learned about the chemical reaction that occurs when vinegar and bicarbonate of soda, or baking soda, mix to make carbonic acid and sodium acetate. The carbonic acid decomposes into water and carbon dioxide gas, which makes a bubbly foam. The students added these materials to their model volcanoes.

The resulting chemical reaction was a captivating moment for the students, who loved watching the foamy substance blast out of their volcano creations in the way lava might explode from a real volcano during a volcanic eruption. They also experimented with other chemical mixtures, such as vinegar and dish soap, to compare the reactions. It was a little messy and a lot of fun!

“We studied how volcanoes helped our planet form over millions of years. Many of the concepts were abstract, so we made the ideas real by creating model volcanoes,” Science teacher Mrs. Nivedita explained. “The students found it exciting to see the volcanoes erupt and ooze lava, and we connected the moment to things we learned.” According to her students noticed that the model volcanoes erupted for a much longer time than anyone had expected. This observation led to a fantastic conversation about the duration of real volcanic eruptions and their effects on civilizations.

In the end, the project was a big success. The students relied upon lessons they learned in multiple subjects, and within a relatively short time frame, they saw the benefits of consistent effort. The students came away with exceptional creations and lasting memories.
“The best part of the activity was when we erupted our volcanoes! At first, nothing happened. Then we shook the volcanoes, and they went boom! It was a big surprise,” Class 5th student Ishant said. Constructing the model volcanoes and painting them were also favorite moments among the students.

Learning by doing is experience. Young learners of Almighty Public school tried their little hands on non flame cooking, donning their Chef Caps in “LITTLE CHEF ACTIVITY “. In this activity they have shown their creativity and artistic approach and made tasty and amazing Sandwiches. This activity made them aware about their senses and good eating habits.

Balloon Suck Activity:

Supplies for Air Pressure Experiments with balloons:
Balloon
Jar or glass
Paper
Matches

How to Conduct an Air Pressure balloon Experiment:

Fill the balloon with water so that it is just too large to fit down inside the jar and rests on top.

Light a piece of paper on fire and drop it into the jar. Place the balloon on top.

The balloon will start to shake a bit, then be sucked into the jar. It probably won’t be sucked in all the way, but about halfway into the jar.

Once the fire dies and the jar cools, have the students see if they can pull the balloon out. It will take a bit of work to get it loose!

How to use Air Pressure Experiments to teach children:
The reason the balloon is sucked into the jar is due to air pressure.

When the piece of paper is heated, it creates hot air, which escapes around the balloon.

The hot air escaping is what makes the balloon shake at first.

But because the balloon is made of latex, no new air enters the jar, creating a low-pressure system inside the jar, which sucks the balloon inside.

Burning Candle Rising Water Science Experiment

Materials:
A plate with a raised rim or a shallow bowl
Water
Candle
Lighter or matches
Drinking glass
Optional: food coloring
Optional: Playdough

Instructions:
1. Place the candle in the middle of the plate or bowl.

2. Optional: If your candle can’t stand by itself, use some playdough to help it stand upright.

3. Optional: Mix water with food coloring in a separate container. The food coloring helps you see the rising water better.

4. Pour the colored water into the plate (to about 1 cm in depth).

5. Light the candle with a lighter or matchstick

6. Turn the glass or mason jar upside down and place it over the candle.

7. Watch what happens to the water when the fire is still burning, and what happens when the fire extinguishes.

Students loved watching the sudden rise in water level inside the glass so much that we did the experiment over and over again until the candle couldn’t light anymore.

We are Almightians …..we are the Future

We are surrounded by various geometric shapes all around. The mobile phone that we hold, the computer screen that we watch, and the bed on which we sleep, all are geometric in shape. Snakes and ladder, which is one of the most played childhood games, is played with the help of dice, which, in turn, is a cube.

Cube is a 3-dimensional structure with six squares/faces, and three of them meet at each vertex, and all the angles at the corner are right-angled.

Cubes

Let’s see the relevant examples of the cube in everyday life.

1. Ice Cubes

Dice are used all over the world for various games. A rolling dice never fails to render excitement and tension, be it at home with family at the dinner table or at the casino. Playing dice games is fun for all ages. There are dots on every side, which range from one in number to six.

3. Sugar Cubes

Sugar cubes

Two cubes of sugar, please! It is what we usually say when we are asked the amount of sugar for our coffee. Sugar in the cube form is just fascinating. Sugar is the most used sweetener in our daily life.

4. Rubik Cube

Cube gift box is considered as one of the most formal and interesting gift boxes to be present to others.

7. Cube Building Blocks

Cube blocks

Most of us, in our childhood, have often played a game where we tried to build a tomb or tower using small blocks. These are cubical in shape because their shape gives them structural stability.

8. Ice Cube
An ice cube is a cube-shaped piece of frozen water. Water has the property by virtue of which it can take the shape of the container in which it is poured. The most common mould or tray used to manufacture ice is the cubic ice tray. This makes ice cubes one of the most popular examples of cube-shaped objects present in our daily life

9. Carton Boxes

Carton boxes, we all need a lot of them while shifting our stuff from one place to the other. Carton boxes are made up of cardboard and are available in a number of sizes. The two most popular geometric shapes used by carton manufacturing companies are a cube and a cuboid

10. Lego Blocks
Lego is one of the most popular construction toys. It consists of a number of interlocking plastic building blocks that are used to construct fun shapes and artefacts. Some of the Lego pieces are cubical in shape. Hence, Lego building blocks are yet another example of cubical objects used in daily life

11. Chocolate Cubes
The cube shape can be observed in real life by looking at a bar of chocolate that consists of a number of cubical blocks interconnected to each other. Also, some of the chocolates are originally manufactured in the shape of a cube.

12. Rooms
If the magnitude of the length, width, and height of a room is the same, then such a room is said to be cubical in shape. Because it consists of 6 faces, 8 vertices, and 12 edges. Hence, the room you are sitting in is itself might be an example of cube-shaped objects in real life.

Mathematics is not about equations, computations or algorithms, it is about
UNDERSTANDING.
Understanding through activity is the best way to get into the depth of mathematics
Students of APS Hamirpur performed an exciting and interesting activities in Mathematics lab. They make working models of perfect square and cube . Learning by doing gave a hands-on experience and thereby paving the way for competency based learning to the students.
The students enjoyed a lot and found the entire exercise very interested. They found learning mathematical concepts by relating them with real life made them so much more easy to understand and fun.

Upside Down Glass of Water Science Experiment Class 6th :

Place a glass and fill it up with the water up to the brim. Keep the set up such that there is no air bubble inside it. Place a thick, stiff piece of the cardboard and put it over the glass. Take your hand over the card and suddenly turn the glass upside down. Now remove your hand slowly. What will be the result of this experiment?

A. Air occupies space.
B. air exerts pressure.
C. air has weight.
D. all of these.

Answer:
When we will remove our hand, then we will find the card will be kept in place and the water will not flow out. This is because of the air that is exerting a pressure on the card from below to make the card kept in place. Therefore, the pressure exerted by the air upwards will be more than the pressure exerted by the water downwards. Therefore the air is exerting the pressure in order to keep the cardboard in place and to make the water not flowing out.
