TI-AIE: Developing the learning environment

What this unit is about

As a teacher, you want your students to achieve the best possible outcomes from their science education. This will provide them with insights and opportunities to extend their life chances and experiences. Many students may be the first in the family to go to school, which is both exciting and daunting. Having a classroom environment that stimulates their interest and creativity will encourage them to continue to attend and gain a purposeful education.

There are lots of opportunities for you and your students to use the classroom environment more creatively to stimulate their interest and encourage their empathy towards it. This unit explores some of the possibilities to enhance the learning environment using the topic of germination as an example, but you can apply these ideas to any science topic.
