Abstract

Classroom based teaching tends to be dominated by teacher talk and passive students are barely involved in their learning. Out of classroom activities offer students a physical context where theory learnt in class can became an authentic science experience. Meta-cognitive tools (concept maps and Vee diagrams) help students obtain a holistic science experience which focuses on feelings, emotions and attitudes together with cognitive development.
