There are three of us who are going to the same school; me (Nana), Hjh Sofinah
and Ferinah. We chose this school because it was convenient and easy accessible as
one of us was a teacher teaching in this school.

Before the lesson start

We came about half an hour early from the actual lesson so that we can prepare
for the lesson. Since we were using ICT lab 2, we had to use Macbook. We get the
computers ready, switch it on and go to the BBC website page.

There are about 13 units of Mac in the ICT laboratory, wireless connections as well
as a projector. Some of the students have to share the computer with their friend
as there are not enough Macbook.

During the lesson

At first, we asked the students to sit facing the white board so that they can
listen to the teacher’s instruction. One of us showed to the students on how to use
the virtual experiment on the white screen, where to click and what to do on the
screen. At the same time, the teacher asked questions to the students on magnet.

Before they started doing the experiment, teacher asked some questions on the
topic that is Magnet. Since they had learned the lesson previously they managed to
answer the questions.

In the experiment, there were magnetic and non magnetic materials and the
students’ duty was to find out which materials are magnetic with the use of
magnet. There are also two different sizes of magnets. In addition, they can also
rotate the magnet.

The students were given ample time to discover the experiment on their own. They
were also given the opportunity to try out the available quiz on the topic to check
their understanding about the concept. 80% of the students can answer the quiz
questions accurately.

At last when they had finished doing their work with the virtual experiment, each
student was given a class work exercise and answers it individually.

The students’ responses were collected and marked. In the work sheet, there are
8 questions. From there, we found out that there are 5 students, who can answer
all the 8 questions correctly, 3 students with 7 marks, 4 students obtained 6
marks, 2 students who got 5 marks and finally, a student who got 3 marks. From
this result, we concluded that the students can answer the questions correctly as
they understood the concept of Magnetic and non-magnetic materials.

Conclusion

Students find this kind of activity as an enjoyable activity where they can
manipulate with the available materials. But the most important part is the
conceptual understanding within it, Magnetic materials are those materials that
are attracted to the magnet and Non-magnetic materials are materials that are
not attracted to the magnet.

This activity save time and also expenses because the teacher does not have to
prepare the apparatus or materials needed for the experiment. Furthermore it
encourages the students to think creatively in solving or finding the solution to the
problems.
