This paper takes the content of the sixth grade Chinese Distant Altair Star of the Guangxi edition of the primary school people's education edition as an example, expounds the basic principles of developing activities with textbooks, analyzes the characteristics of the development and design of such activities and the specific operation and implementation of such activities. The full text discusses and analyzes how to use the methods of "role theory" and "situation creation" to turn the virtual into the real. It constructs the situation and ignites the students' interest, stimulating exploration and promoting thinking, and emphasizes hands-on exploration and personal experience.


I have been engaged in youth science education activities for more than 20 years, and I am good at curriculum research and development and activity planning. For many years, I have always adhered to the teaching purpose of disseminating natural knowledge and cultivating scientific spirit. In teaching, through scientific teaching, I have promoted children to advocate science, love nature, establish scientific thinking methods, and gradually improve children's comprehensive scientific literacy, as well as their ability to apply scientific knowledge to solve practical problems.
