English first additional language

Grade 6

Module 52

To express cause and effect

Activity 1:

To express cause and effect

[lo 5.2.6]

Study the following picture.

There are many things in this picture that could cause a fire to start! It is important that we are aware of these things to prevent fires in our own environment.

Write down a set of rules that should be followed to prevent fire breaking out in the home. The rules must correspond with the numbers in the picture.

Spelling and punctuation Poor – difficult to decipher Still developing – many errors Good – very few errors Excellent - no errors
Ability to make rules from picture Poor Fair Reasonable Excellent

Assessment

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 encourages learners to think carefully about things in the home that could cause fires. They are asked to study a picture where there are many situations that could cause a fire. They must make up rules, which must correspond with the numbers in the picture, to help prevent fire in the home.

Talk about the picture before allowing them to begin. Give them one or two clues as to what the problems could be. Do not give them all the answers. Allow them to complete the exercise, ad then have another discussion afterwards where learners can share their rules with the rest of the class or the rest of their group.

Some ideas for you to use:

  1. Do not plug too many plugs plugged into one socket.
  2. Do not allow children to play with matches. Do not leave matches where children can get to them.
  3. Do not allow electric cords to run under mats where they will get walked on.
  4. Do not leave a fire unattended. Do not make a fire without a screen.
  5. Do not put pots on the stove with the handles sticking out over the edge of the stove.
  6. Do not place bottles or any other items that could catch fire, on the stove. Do not leave boiling pots unattended.
  7. Do not leave the iron unattended. Do not leave the iron switched on.
  8. Do not leave candles burning near curtains.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
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.
