C6 Muscles and bones (teacher instructions)

Experimentation instructions for Experimento - 8+:Background information on the content and practical information on conducting the "Muscles and bones” experiment, which comprises two subexperiments.The teacher instructions include information on the following: the main question, relevance to the curriculum, skills, notes on conducting the subexperiments, the research group, further research assignments, and the reference to technology.The experiment comprises two subexperiments:• Stable bones• Facial gymnasticsAlthough bones and muscles play such an important role for us, we generally do not know enough about how they look or even behave in our body. Doing facial gymnastics routinely, however, helps us be more consciously aware of our face in everyday life and how to loosen it. This relaxes us as a result. It is therefore important for children to develop a sense of their own bodies and to know more about the components, such as bones and muscles.Notes: • Observe the safety information in the instructions as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.

Colored tops

Experimentation instructions for Experimento - 4+:How do we see patterns and colors when they move quickly in front of our eyes?Our eye processes light stimuli relatively slowly. We perceive a rapid sequence of more than 16 individual images as continuous movement, or as a film.Information and Ideas:• The teacher/educator should use a colored disk as a template to cut 2-3 circles of the same diameter from cardboard. Then, he should make a suitable hole in the middle of the colored disk so that a wooden dowel can be pushed through. The wooden dowel is the axis for the top. The top works best if the wooden dowel does not project from the colored disk underneath by more than 1 cm.• Please observe the general safety and hygiene measures and safety instructions in the respective teaching methods as well as the applicable safety guidelines for your school.• All materials mentioned in the instructions will have to be purchased directly from commercial sources.

Pedagogical concept

Explains the basic educational concept of Experimento - 4+, then offers tips for working with children on experiments.The experimentation process should be designed as a co-construction, with children and educational experts working side by side. Children form their own picture of the world with the support and collaboration of their peers. The idea behind metacognition is that children become aware of the learning process. This can be achieved through reflection, additional activities, and links to other areas of education. During the experimentation phase, it is important to build upon what the children already know and engage them in a dialog so that ultimately, they will learn to think independently.
