The "Science Lessons For Batang Paete" is designed to help you teach science inside the classroom.

Each topic is ideally designed to be browsed by a class with the guidance of a teacher. One can use a multimedia projector while browsing one of these topics so that the entire class could navigate through one topic together with the students actively interacting with the teacher.

The ideal use of the forum starts with the teacher getting acquainted with the material. The forum perhaps looks like a maze, but with the aid of the search task of this website, one could easily find relevant pages for a given topic. One can use the search capability by either clicking on the search button (near the top of this page) or by clicking the following:

Here is an example. Let's say I am looking for sites that talk about weather:

I will type "weather" in the keyword button and select "Science Lessons for Batang Paete" in the Forum selection. I will then get the topics that contain relevant information regarding weather.

Each topic starts with a recent news article. This is just an appetizer. The important parts in each topic are the exploratory questions found near the end of each posting. These questions are linked to highly informational and educational websites.

Each topic also includes games that maybe related to the topic under study.

The topics have also been categorized under the general headings of Biology, Chemistry, Phyics, the Human Body, Health Science, Astronomy, Earth Science, Mathematics, and Environment. You may find these articles categorized on the following page:

Topics and Lessons Categorized

Lastly, relevant updates are going to be posted under each topic. This forum would not be possible without the numerous and excellent news and educational sources available on the web. The articles are obtained from science news sites such as ScienceDaily, LiveScience, ScienceLive, ScienceNews, Yahoo, Press Releases from Universities (as compiled and distributed by Eurekalert, etc.) I am very grateful to these sources. Students and teachers who would use these lessons as references for papers should cite these sources appropriately.
