Arts and culture

Grade 5

Critical and creative reflection

Module 10

Visual art

Activity 1

To be able to distinguish between various art forms

[lo 2.8]

In Modules 1 to 9 you worked with drawing, painting, design, handicraft, and collage techniques. In Module 10 sculpture, architecture and graphic media will be studied.


As we are surrounded by a variety of art objects, statues and works of

art in our daily lives, it is essential that learners can distinguish between all the various visual art forms ( drawing, painting, architecture, sculpturing, design, handicraft and graphic media)..

Study the illustrations below and decide which form of art

(architecture, design, handiwork, drawing, paint, graphic art, sculpture) belongs to which illustration.

Various Art Forms

After the educator has discussed the various art forms with you, you must make a short summary of each form to correspond with the illustration.









For homework you must collect your own examples of each art form and keep them in your journal.

Activity 2

To make a mobile with/of mixed media

[lo 2.8]

Bring a wire hanger as basis for the mobile ( a work of art which is hung and must be able to bring forth movement). Look at the examples of the various forms of art to serve as inspiration for your own creation of a variety of art forms.

You can, e.g., make a drawing, paint a picture, make a “wire-man”, a house of cardboard, a string of beads or a sweet-paper, or print a pattern on cloth with a potato.

If you cannot obtain materials or media, pictures of certain art forms can be pasted onto cardboard and used. As many examples of various forms of art as possible must then be hung from the wire hanger, tied by thread.

The completed mobile can be displayed in the classroom or elsewhere in the school building.

Activity 3

To understand the purpose and meaning of popular culture

[lo 2.9]


The educator will provide you with a copy of a television programme for one day. See how many kinds of programmes you can recognise. Enter them into a table that you draw on a sheet of paper in your workbook, using the headings as below:

8. Do you think new technology could change your television watching


9. Why?/Why not?

10. Which firm or product is advertised regularly when you watch your programme?

11. Do the adverts suit the programme?

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.

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?
