The main advantage of hands on teaching is that it guides the students to active learning and guides them to construct their own knowledge. So, the correct answer is B. Think about it.

Hands-on activities and lessons often mean the teacher is speaking less (which the kids that need to move and talk will appreciate) and it means that the students will get a chance to put their new knowledge to the test. This is often why science classrooms have lab benches and counters that are ready for experimentation. The students will learn better if they are able to put it to the test.

It would also explain group projects being so popular with teachers, despite the fact that there’s always a group that gets that one student who refuses to pull their weight.

Lead the students to active learning and guide them to construct their own knowledge.-hands-on activities can make the curriculum more relevant and guide children to construct their own knowledge. hands-on activities can probably lead children to think abstractly (a), but the activity is not designed exclusively to accomplish this goal. hands-on activities can make the class more interesting and enjoyable (b), but they are not the reasons for the activities. (d) is incorrect because there is no evidence to suggest that hands-on activities can promote equity, equality, or freedom among students. competency 013
