Abstract

The objective of this chapter is to introduce the activity aids. There are certain learning situations in which student participation through direct experiences can be easily incorporated, these are called activity aids. The activity teaching aids are really of great value as they put students in a role of active seekers of knowledge. There are five important activity teaching aids, which are field trips, demonstrations, experiments, and dramatizations. A field trip is defined as a planned and supervized visit of a group of students outside the classroom to get the first hand educational experience. Demonstration method is a concrete visual aid, because of its wide use in the teaching of nurses. In nursing education, it is used for this purpose and also for clinics, conferences, laboratory classes, symposia, autopsies and teaching of health to patients. Dramatization is a very potent method of keeping the class room instruction lively and interesting.
