CBSE Practical Work

CBSE to introduce ‘Alternative Experiments’ for Practical Work: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to curate ‘Alternative Experiments for Practical Work’ for Class 9 and Class 10 students. The decision has been taken keeping in mind the limited time for practical work due to COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns. The decision to launch alternative experiments for practical work has been confirmed through an official notification which was published by the board recently. The notice says that the decision to introduce alternative experiments for practical work was taken to compensate for the reduction in the amount of time for face-to-face teaching due to closure of schools amid the pandemic.

Alternative Experiments for Practical Work

The official notification released by the CBSE Board says that the alternative experiments for practical work which are being introduced by the board will be very simple in nature and can be self-performed by the students. The experiments will be done with the help of household materials or items available easily at home to ensure that the practical training of students doesn’t suffer in case of school closures. On the other hand, the alternative practical work experiments are designed in such a way that their learning outcomes will be similar to that of the practical work done in dedicated labs. The alternative practical activities and work given to the students will be monitored and reviewed by the teachers. Further, parents should be informed if the students require supervision for any activities.

Additional Activities to Support Alternative Experiments

In addition to introducing alternative experiments for practical work, the Board has also introduced a series of additional and supportive activities for them. These activities will be introduced for Class 9 and 10 students and will be based on the NCERT manual. For Class 9 students, the total number of additional activities is 20 while the same for Class 10 students is 22. These additional activities will help students to explore concepts of science and have a better understanding of the same. The board will also introduce guideline materials for these activities including videos, worksheets for students and step by step guidelines.The content for these alternative practical experiments and the allied activities has been prepared by ThinkTac and it would be available on the Diksha portal.
