'5 Creative, Fun, Crafty and Exciting Science Activities and Ideas That Will Make Learning Fun!"

        Hands-on activities are crucial in teaching science to primary-level students because they offer a more engaging, memorable, and effective way for students to learn scientific concepts. Fostering curiosity: Hands-on activities can spark a child's curiosity and inspire them to explore further. When children engage with the material, they are more likely to ask questions, experiment, and seek answers. This can lead to a lifelong interest in science and a desire to learn more about the natural world.
