5. What do the bellows in the building and the lungs in the body have in common? Try to mention at least two things.

B. Play the alphabet game to make a WORD SEARCH of your own. There may not be less than SIX words in your game. Either choose a letter from the alphabet and write down as many parts of the body beginning with that letter as you can think of, or work through the alphabet trying to find a part of the body that begins with each letter.

LO 3.8.2

Use your own paper to design your own word search game.

C. Look at the picture of the human skeleton on page 8 and answer the following questions.

1. Where is the humerus?

2. What is another name for the kneecap?

3. What would you have broken if your clavicle were fractured?

4. What is the name of the longest bone in the body?

5. Why do you think Elvis Presley was nicknamed ‘Elvis the Pelvis’?

6. When accidentally knocking the elbow hard against something, people say they have hit their ‘funny bone’. Why do you think they call it the funny bone? (Remember to refer to the drawing of the skeleton.)

Learning Outcomes(LOs)
LO 3
READING AND VIEWING The learner is able to read and view for information and enjoyment, and to respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.
We know this when the learner:
3.1 reads and responds critically to a variety of South African and international fiction and non-fiction (journals, poetry, novels, short plays, newspapers, textbooks, etc.):
3.1.1 reads aloud and silently, adjusting reading strategies to suit the purpose and audience;
3.1.2 uses appropriate reading and comprehension strategies (skimming, and scanning, predictions, contextual clues, inferences, monitoring comprehension, etc.);
3.7 identifies and critically discusses cultural and social values in texts:
3.7.3 discusses the diversity of social and cultural values in texts;
3.8 understands and uses information texts appropriately:
3.8.1 summarises main and supporting ideas;
3.8.2 selects and records relevant information appropriately;
3.9 interprets and analyses independently details in graphical texts (maps, line graphs, bar graphs and pie charts) and transfers information from one form to another.
LO 5
THINKING AND REASONING The learner is able to use language to think and reason, and access, process and use information for learning.
We know this when the learner:
5.3 processes information:
5.3.1 categorises and classifies information and can explain what these processes entail, giving examples form different learning areas;

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
