Look at the pictures. what would you like to help your teacher with? (tick off the pictures). choose any five.


Learning Outcomes
LO 3
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT The learner will be able to use acquired life skills to achieve and extend personal potential to respond effectively to challenges in his or her world.
Assessment Standards(Ass)
We know this when the learner:
3.3 shows and identifies different emotions, including respect for living things;
SUSTAINABLE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of reconstruction, sustainable growth and development, and to reflect critically on its related processes.
We know this when the learner:
2.1 describes tasks and responsibilities at school and why they need to be done (Teacher’s notes).
TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND SKILLS The learner will be able to apply technological processes and skills ethically and responsibly using appropriate information and communication technologies.
We know this when the learner:
1.1 ( investigates ) - investigates why products are made of particular materials (Teacher’s notes);1.2 ( designs ) – chooses suitable material or substances to make simple products to satisfy a given need;1.3 ( makes ) – makes simple products from different materials;1.4 ( evaluate ) – expresses and explains own feelings about the product made.


Learners should get the opportunity to express their feelings about going to school. Some of them might be familiar with a school environment, and others not.

  • Discuss their different emotions and help them to identify these.
  • Repeat the discussion after two weeks. This will enable you to determine whether they feel secure and more at ease. Ask questions like “why?”. How does it enable them to cope with an unfamiliar situation? Are they aware of other similar situations?

To some learners, school may be a whole new experience. Others may be more familiar to the school environment, because of pre-school. Whatever the case may be, learners must get used to and manage the changed environment of class and school. They should, for example, take part in class activities, should be able to sit still for a given time and await their turn.

Divide the class into groups of +/- five learners. Each group must think of three important things they can do in class each day to help keep the classroom clean and tidy. With the help of the class, the teacher now writes down the five most important class duties. The learners must take turns to fulfil these duties. (The teacher can draw up a duty list.) Have a class discussion about other people who have tasks and responsibilities at school (for example, the cleaners, the headmaster, the teachers or the prefects.) What will happen if they don’t fulfil these duties? Emphasise the responsibility that each child has in class too, for example, clean up where they have worked (EMS 2.1).

The learners must design their own photo-frame. This can be used on their table in class or at home. Revise the technological process that was explained in module 1. Discuss the different materials they can use. The learners must design, make and evaluate the organiser. (Tech 1.1 - 1.4).

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.
