Are you a star ? 1.Draw & Cut a star like this 2.Write your name in the center 3.Fold all the star’s triangular petals inside (along dotted line) – now it no more likes like a star 4.Put two spoons of water in a plate 5.Put your folded star on top of the water 6.Watch – if it opens up and becomes a star then you are a real scientific star
Nature Intelligence The sun rises in the east. Rubbing your hands generates heat. Due to buoyancy the straw floats in a coke bottle. You float when you disperse the water equivalent to your weight. Parts of the plants – Petals and Sepals. When the circuit from positive terminal to the negative terminal is complete – the current flows.
Nature Intelligence What is Nature Intelligence How do we develop nature Intelligence? How do we use nature intelligence in learning?
Is Nature Intelligence about knowledge and Facts ? Is Science about knowledge and Facts ?
Is Nature Intelligence about correct answer ? Why do stars twinkle?
Explore Blow the air out and feel the temperature of the air – guess what is the temperature? Now roll your lips and blow and check the temperature Open your mouth wide and blow the air – check the temperature. Explore more if you want
So how do we get children to Learn about Caterpillars and butterflies Explore different kinds of rocks Be sensitive to tress Understand own body parts (say dental needs) To invent To learn about sounds
Is Nature Intelligence about a way to think, to relate? To think in a scientific way, like a scientist; Do scientific thinking; Develop scintific temper; To observe, to wonder, to wander, to experiment, to explore, to make hypothesis, to check those hypothesis, to draw own conclusions (however wrong they may be compared to scientific facts as we know them), to test them and so on. To question even established facts.
What do you think will happen if you were to hold a strip of paper between two fingers and blow on top of it Blow the facts away
Scientific thinking is a process which is NOT about knowledge but about a SKILL a way to think
How can we use Nature Intelligence? 1. To learn swimming (Body) 2. In my art class (Visual) 3. To make friends (People) 4. In gardening (Nature) 5. In my Drums class (Music) 6. In making presentations (Word) 7. To help overcome (nose picking) habit (Self) 8. To make better investments (Logic)
If inspite of learning so much about our nature, we seem to give a damn about nature, what for are we learning about nature? Or is it, not, what we know about nature but, how we know, what we know
John Muir In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. John Muir
I THINK that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. A tree whose hungry mouth is prest Against the sweet earth's flowing breast; A tree that looks at God all day, And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me, But only God can make a tree. Joyce Kilmer
