    Teaching aid is a material which can be used by the teacher while teaching a lesson to enhance the understanding of the student about the subject.
    There are many teaching aids. A book, a map. a picture, a computer, a TV, a model or a DVD. Any of them will be a teaching aid. You can select the teaching aid basing on the lesson you are teaching and the level of the students to whom you are teaching the lesson. These teaching aids can be visual aids, audio aids and audio-visual aids.
    When you are trying to explain to a student about an animal if you show him a chart in which the picture of the animal is available, it will help the student to understand the animal better. When you are telling him about the various parts of that animal you can mark them on the map and show it to the student so that he will better understand the subject about the animal. Visualising an animal is easy when they see the figure or chart than simply hearing. Then you can show them a chart in which various name of the animal in different languages and other required information is given. The student while hearing you, can read the chart also so that he will have a better understanding of the subject.

    Teaching - aids have lasting effects on our mind - frame especially the infants and as such this will create a permanent impact on their mind. In fact, there are three modes of such aids such visual, audio, audio - visual. Maps available of different creatures or rerenting a country can be shown to pupils explaining the different parts of the regions and such explanation becomes more meaningful than a mere explanation on that subject.
    DVD creates a better impact since in that medium, we employ both audio and visual representation of the subjects and thus this will have a permanent impact.

    Teaching is an art. This art becomes more illustrative if teaching aids are used. Teaching aids could be of various types from blackboard diagram to outdoor excursion.

    One example of teaching aid is model of the subject. For example if we are explaining a body part to the students then an illustrative 3D model of that part with different colour schemes can be very useful and will create an imprint in the minds of the students.

    Without teaching aids the teaching process is uninteresting and monotonous. Teaching aids add value to the teaching and the teachings remain in the conciousness of the students for a long time.

    Teaching aids are an integral component in any classroom.the many benefits of teaching aids include helping learners improve reading comprehension skills, illustrating,or reinforcing a skill or concept,differentiating instruction and relieving anxiety or boredom by presenting information in a new and exciting way.

    Teaching aids also engage students other senses since there are no limits in what aids can be utilized when supplementing a lesson.

    Teaching aids help to make the learning environment interesting and engaging.as we move toward a more digital society,kids are being exposed to technology and digital devices at a younger age.

    Teaching aids are one of the important part when it comes to the work flow of the education. Teaching aids assure that the information from the teacher to student is flowing through the right ways. As you can see almost every educational institute say school, college and university follow a pattern. And for which the knowledge transfer requires teaching aids.

    Teaching aids help with the information consumption. And it can also be useful for collecting feedback on the understanding of students. It is also a good option to measure the teaching and student performance through the teaching aids data.

    In modern times, the teaching aids from the past are reduced and modern methods are being applied for collecting data. And now teachers can teach more effectively. And also they can measure the student performance. So with this change in the market the teaching aids are more effective in today's time.

    Answering in the very simplest of terms, teaching aids enable the teacher to deliver the content more efficiently and the students can imbibe and retain the knowledge better than just verbal delivery by the teacher.

    The simplest teaching aid is the black board and chalk piece and the complex ones are the interactive tabs and touchscreen individual screens for students. The impact of the teaching aid depends on whether it is audio, visual or a combination of both which is commonly used. It can be an actual sample that is central to the topic that is physically used during teaching.

    Let us consider the subject of water and nutrient transport by flowering plants from the ground level to the tips. This occurs via the xylem and phloem of the stem. For this to be explained to small students, it would be a dry subject if we just use a lecture to students. Instead, when we use a set of simple glass beakers, colored soultion (red, blue, green) and white crysenthaneium flowers, this would have a better impact

    1. Select one teaching aid and show how you would use it in your lesson presentation.

    We can use the 'actual objects' as we deliver the class or show an 'Audio-visual recording' of the experiment as 'Teaching aids'. The beakers will be half filled with the red, blue and green water solution (using food colours), then white flowers with a decent stem length would be placed in the beaker and left on a window sill or where sunlight comes in. After a few hours, we can see that the white flower and its petals have turned into the shade of the coloured water in which they are kept.

    2.Indicate why the teaching aid is relevant for the subject content of the lesson your teaching.

    Here, we are trying to explain to kids that water and food go from the roots via the xylem in the stem to other parts of the plant. To enable the children to understand the concept, we have recreated this in a simple manner that can get children involved and excited to see the color change happening in front of their eyes.

    3.Show how the teaching aids simplifies the content to your learners.

    This real experiment or a recorded (AV display) simplifies the lesson beautifully in a manner that children can grasp, remember with fun rather than just memorize the theory stuff. We are trying to teach about the movement of water and nutrients from roots to the flowers and leaves via the xylem. Using the teaching aid, we will explain that the coloured solution is the water and nutrients that is available for the roots, as the white flower shows the colour of the water in the beaker, we will imply the fact that the coloured water has been transported by the stem from the beaker to the flower petals.
