Abstract


There are many learning theories which we study under Educational Psychology. Constructi vism is one of them which focus on developing the learners knowledge by constructing the world around them through experience, observation, documentation, analysis and reflection. In the classrooms of today, learners are no longer passive recipients nor a re the teachers givers of information, knowledge and wisdom. According to constructivist perspective, the teaching or the learning of biology is not the search for the ultimate truth. So, the process of learning biology involves active construction of kn owledge by children, and then the classroom environment must call for more synergies rather than mere individual participation. The teachers need to develop the ability to work with children creatively to generate new ideas, new theories, new products and new knowledge.
