We learnt that Machines help us do things easily and they are made by man by the permission of Allaah and used by people in their day to day work. We read the encyclopaedia and it talks about different kind of Machines and how they are made. We did not get into detail at this stage.
I asked her to name some machines she knows. Then she did the smart start science book activity on machines.
We learnt that Electricity is a type of energy and used most of the time.
We learnt that even our body has electricity and the most easiest way was to show the static electricity.
Then I asked her to go around the house and tell me the things that we use that needs electricity. Then I wrote them down and along with it she brought some of her toys that also needs electricity. Also we learnt that Electricity can kill us and we have to take extra care and discussed safety measures.
She did the Science Book activities.
Then we identified what are things that use the socket and what things use battery. Showed her the switches and the flow of electricity while explaining a bit on circuits.
We learnt that Battery stores electricity.
Then we did the DK worksheets on electricity and circuits. She could draw a simple circuit by herself and could understand and identify whether the circuit would work or not.
I gave the pictures and asked her to paste and make a circuit.
We learnt that heat is another type of energy. Spoke about when we would need heat and for what.
She did the smart start science activity.
Taught her to read a thermometer and introduced the minus numbers which was useful for maths as well.
