Science Project for Class 9:
Education is no more confined to rote learning anymore. It involves providing students with real-life experiences to understand the topics of the subject. One of the most common ways of providing students the application of topics is through project work. Project work has become the important part of the curriculum. Every school is trying to design curriculum which helps in all-round development of the students, which is physical and mental. In today’s dynamic world education is not stagnant and theoretical but the focus is to prepare students skills rather than the concept of copy paste. Science Project for Class 9 plays a vital role in building analytical and social responsibilities in an individual. As for Science Project for Class 9 some of the points that should be kept in mind before doing the projects are:
- Before you start with the project plan and discuss your project details with your mentor and Group members as per the theme or subject assigned.
- A Task list should be prepared for the work that you need to do in order to complete your project on time.
- Make regular entry about the status of the task and make a log book for your project.
- Compile the project neatly and with perfection.
- Lastly, remember the project will be assessed based on Research, Presentation, Originality
Science Project for Class 9: Work according to NCERT syllabus
- Matter or Things in Our Surroundings: Whenever we look at our surroundings, we can see different kinds of things which are of different shapes and sizes and textures. Everything around our Environment is made up of materials which we can touch feel and see, have been named as matter.
- Is Matter Around Us Pure: Students are asked to study matter in order to check the authenticity of any matter like butter, spices, honey or minerals. Whatever we are consuming must be tested first.
- Atoms and Molecules form very small parts: Greek Philosopher and ancient Indian have always tried to wonder about the unknown and unseen form of matter.
- Structure or building of the Atom: The students can prepare the project about atoms and molecules showing the fundamental building blocks of matters and their existence because of different atoms in them.
- The Fundamental Unit of Life: Robert Hooke had examined that a cork has been shown in the structure of a honeycomb consisting of many little compartments, to which he deduced the relevance of studying the fundamental unit of life.
- Tissue: Every living organism is made of single or multiple cells. In unicellular organisms, a single cell performs all basic functions. For example, in Amoeba, a single cell carries out movement, intake of food and respiratory gases, respiration and excretion. But in multi-cellular organisms, there are millions of cells.
- Diversity in Living Organisms:
All living organism differ from another to a lesser or greater extent. For example, consider yourself and one of your friend.
- Are you both the same height?
- Does your nose look exactly like your friend’s nose?
- Is your hand-span the same as your friend’s?
- Motion or Movement:
Activity on motion or movement-Discuss about the things
- Discuss whether the table and chairs of your classroom are at rest or in motion.
- Have you ever noticed that the train in which one is sitting appears to move while still being at rest?
Do share and discuss your experience.
- Force and Laws of Motion:
An object changes its motion on being pushed, pulled or hit.
Let’s do a fun activity.
- Take a piece of thread.
- Tie a small ball to one end. Hold the other end of the thread and move it in a round motion,
- Note the motion of the stone.
- Release the thread.
- Again, note the direction of motion of
the small ball.
- Project on Communicable and non-communicable diseases:
Collect information on communicable and non-communicable diseases from books, internet, journals etc.
- Communicable Diseases:
As the name suggests communicable diseases spread from an infected person to a healthy human being. These diseases are caused by pathogens like viruses, bacteria, fungi, worms. The infection gets transmitted through the medium of air, water, vectors and physical contact. Below are the diseases that spread through the different medium:
- Air- Tuberculosis (TB), common cold etc
- Water- Dysentery, Cholera etc
- Vectors- Malaria, Dengue, Typhoid etc
- Physical Contact- Aids, Syphilis etc
- Control and Prevention:
Every communicable disease can be controlled by attacking the source of the disease-causing organism and interrupting the transmission cycle. Secondly, reduce the effect of the disease on the host by giving right medicine and having ample bed rest to conserve energy.
For example: in case of malaria we should clean and destroy sites for mosquito breeding. Also to treat the infected person prophylactic medications should be provided and should also use a mosquito net to keep away from any further contact with mosquitos.
- Non-Communicable Diseases:
It is defined as a medical condition or disorder which is non-transmissible. Like Heart disease, Cancer, asthma etc.
These diseases depend on a person’s lifestyle, the environment in which they live, exposure to pollution, unhealthy habits, unhealthy diet etc.
According to WHO (World Health Organization), major risk factors for non-communicable disease are blood pressure, high cholesterol, consumption of tobacco, alcohol, and obesity.
- Control and Prevention:
To reduce the risk of non-communicable disease a holistic approach is required. It can be reduced by educating on healthy living and there benefits, promote research and treatment and control the diseases.
For example, consumption of tobacco causes cancer. This can be prevented by educating people about the harm, trying ways to curb tobacco production. Also, research should be made to cure cancer and develop a mechanism to detect the disease at an early stage for a timely treatment.
