A great way for students to become engaged and learn about critical scientific concepts is through hands-on activities. Hands-on science experiments allow students to have active learning opportunities, where they are able to become effective and efficient learners (Cox, n.d.). Furthermore, this student-centred approach provides students with an opportunity to learn about curriculum expectations in collaboration with key scientific skills. This instructional approach to learning fosters student creativity, problem solving and improves students’ attitudes towards science (Haury, 1994). As many students in my class had Individual Education Plans, I wanted to differentiate instruction to cater to the needs of my students. Thus, to teach students about the digestive system, I used an interactive hands-on experiment to enhance students’ knowledge about the key organs, their structures and functions.
