APPLICATION OF NATURAL ENVIRONMENT IN TEACHING-LEARNING BIOLOGY

Dr. Ashwani Kumar Gupta

Abstract


The natural environment encompasses all living and non-living things occurring naturally, meaning in this case not artificial. The natural environment has two components Biotic components and Abiotic components. Biotic components are the animals and plants or living things and Abiotic components are the air, water, natura  l gases, soil and rocks etc. available in the environment. The inter dependency among all components is observed in the forms of ecosystems and bio-geo-chemical cycles in natural environment. The natural environment may acts as a source of study material in study of Biology. In this study the syllabus of the senior secondary biology of CBSE is used to observe the effectiveness of natural environment. In this study the finding identifying the concepts of theoretical studies and experimental studies of biology mentioned in the syllabus of senior secondary biology and then calculate the total number of theoretical concepts and experimental/activity concepts and at the  next step the concepts identified from the natural environment as teaching0learning material in biology study, their relationships with theoretical and experimental concepts in biology syllabus to prove then natural environment is also an effective resource material in teaching-learning strategy of biology in the forms of field study, field trip or study tour of biology as well as environmental study at senior secondary level.
