QUESTION1.            Methods of teaching science

2.                        Lesson plan in science

1.     Collaborative Method: this method of teaching establishes a personal connection between students and the topic of study. It allows the students to actively participate in the learning process by talking with each other. It can also be known as team-Based Learning (TBS)

Advantages Collaborative Method

·        It helps to foster mutual responsibility.

·        It supports research as an effective technique

·        Students learn to be patient, less critical and more compassionate.
