Unboxing Science box and learning about circuits

We explored Pop up learning Science Box (Electricity version) along with our science text book. Initially, we unbox the electricity kit and explore what’s inside it! We have uploaded a video about it too! My daughter is a 6th grader and almost going to start her 7th grade, so this box and its components help her out to do the practical activities regarding Electricity. Now in this video shes explaining about a simple circuit along with a buzzer. Initially, she made out this circuit…

Blocks are Fun!

Blocks are one of the classic toys for kids, and it makes children busy very constructively. Their colourful appearance made them more attractive and indulging, and even spur them on to learn more about them.Every child likes every kind of block to play with, whether it’s plain wooden, plastic LEGO Duplo blocks, LEGO, or even waffle-shaped blocks. Last few days ago, I came across jigsaw puzzle shaped blocks. They were made from plastics and had vibrant colors. I began wondering, how are my kids…

DIY Activities to do at home

Everything thing in life comes with a package. I hope you all agree, but don’t worry, I am not getting philosophical, but its quite right. From milk cartons to empty tissue rolls to cereal boxes, everything thing comes inboxes. In these Quartine days, when going out, especially for your kid’s art supplies, is not valid, then these packages can help you out to overcome the kid’s boredom.  In this specific post, I would be sharing a few of my kid’s experiences with these empty…

Controlling robot with Bluetooth

Controlling Robot with Bluetooth

In our series for Robotics for Teachers, we are finally at a point where we can include a Bluetooth device to the robot and send it commands wirelessly via Bluetooth using our smartphone. We have already done discussion on the wiring of the robot and all the many different modules and components on the robot in previous videos and this one is just to add Bluetooth and although it is a bit fast-paced, but if you have any questions or comments, feel free to…

Learning Fractions Through Tiny Polka Dot

From the very beginning when I started playing different games of tiny polka dot with my child, these red-colored cards were our favorites having green and blue dots on it makes more eye-catchy and attractive. Today I tried playing fractions through it, the very basic one. We tried different cards with different numbers of dots. And try to take out the fraction between blue and green dots representing a specific number, moreover, we made out bar representation of these fractions. HOW TO PLAY: Things…
