It Can be Done: Innovative Biology Practical Activities that Learners Can Identify with


I taught biology for a long time in the usual way – textbook in hand and textbook prescribed activities were the norm. The result? Your guess is as good as mine. The students were bored and remained disinterested in the subject. I tried to come up with innovative activities – those that did not exist in biology textbooks and modified existing ones to make them learner-friendly. The results were amazing. My teaching has become easy and fun and my learners always look forward to that next lesson. I have purposed to continue exploring and coming up with more such activities. In this article, I share one such activity. I conclude the article with a call to teachers to try this strategy with their students.
