Grade 6

Module 48

To communicate information

Activity 1:

To express an opinion and give reasons for it [lo 4.1.4]

To carry out a simple research [lo 5.3.1]

Have you ever wondered just what you would do if your house caught fire? What would you try to rescue first? Take some time to think about this now.

List the three most valuable possessions you would take with you if your house caught fire, and give reasons for your decisions. (Remember to check your spelling!)

Now conduct a survey in your family. Ask three other people what they would take with them if the house were to catch fire. Record your findings in the table below. Your educator may ask you to share some of your findings with the class.

Assessment

LO 4
WRITING The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.
We know this when the learner:
4.1 writes to communicate information:
4.1.4 expresses an opinion and gives reasons for it;
4.2 writes for social purposes:
4.2.1 with a ‘frame’, writes a simple personal letter;
4.3 writes creatively:
4.3.1 shows development in the ability to write stories, play scripts and dialogues.
LO 5
THINKING AND REASONING The learner will be able to use language to think and reason, and access, process and use information for learning.
We know this when the learner:
5.1 uses language across the curriculum:
5.1.2 extracts information from materials used in History;
5.2 uses language for thinking:
5.2.1 answers and asks some more complex questions;
5.2.3 analyses the features of things in order to classify them;
5.2.6 expresses cause and effect;
5.2.7 discusses advantages and disadvantages and writes about them;
5.3 collects and records information in different ways:
5.3.1 carries out some simple research.

Memorandum

This activity requires learners to think about they would do if their own house burnt down. (Be sensitive to the fact that this may well have happened to somebody in your class. They might like to share their experience with the class if possible.) Learners must decide on the three things that they would choose to take with them. They must also give reasons for their decision. After this part of the activity is complete, learners must ask three other people in their family, or close environment, the same question. They must fill the answers in on the table provided. This will require a bit of time so be sure to allocate sufficient time for the learners to do the survey, and to record the answers. Give them a deadline before they start the activity.

Once they have completed the survey, allow some time for learners to share their findings with one another. This could be done as a whole class or in a group situation.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
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.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
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.

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.
