A workshop related to the science topic 'Know Your Body' was held on 18 May
2014. The science workshop was an experience of a lifetime. In fact, it was a
bucketful of fun. It made us understand how precious our body is and how we must
take care of it to live a healthy and happy life.
The workshop participants
were divided into 4 groups consisting of eight members each. We were assigned to
accomplish two activities. They were :
1. Body Mapping
The students in this group were instructed to trace one of their group
member's body onto joined sheets of brown paper. From there, they drew the
external body. the other group drew an internal body map. They made it
scientific and educational by labeling the sketch. Both groups exhibited good
skills. The facilitator, Mr Choo, made jokes
while they did the drawings.
2. Role - playing
After the body mapping, Mr Choo gave the third and fourth groups a specific
topic and instructed them to compose a role-play on that topic. Some of the
suggested topics were :
i. AIDS - the definition
and prevention of HIV/AIDS
ii. Effects of a healthy diet on
iii. How boys and girls change
iv. Plastic surgery
v. Heart Diseases
First, each group was given a topic and guidelines to prepare an activity in
twenty minutes. Then, the groups had to present their activity in ten minutes to
the rest of the students. Their performances were informative and interesting.
After each performance, a short explanation was given by Mr Choo. This was to
increase our knowledge and understanding.
On the whole, the time that we spent at the workshop was educational and
entertaining. The attendees were kept
actively involved. Everyone agreed that it was a great workshop indeed.
