Johnny’s lost sandal

Activity 1

To write lists [lo 4.1.2]

To design a simple poster [lo 4.4.1]

Reading passage

A. Your educator will divide the class into eight groups. In your group, read only the section that you have been told to read. In the space provided, list all the items that are found in that room.

Johnny runs into the bedroom where Mummy is making up the double bed. Mummy and Daddy sleep in this big bed.

"I can't find my brown sandal anywhere," he says. "Mummy, please help me look for it!"

"I will, as soon as I have finished here," says Mummy.

She straightens the books on the bedside table. Then she puts all her pots of cream and powder neatly in place on top of the dressing table. She wipes the mirror with a cloth. She also closes the doors of the built-in cupboard which Daddy has left open.

Come on, Johnny," she says. "Let's go and have a good look for your sandal.”

They first go to the bathroom , where Johnny undressed himself last night. There's nothing on the floor except the bath mat. They know that the sandal cannot possibly

be in the toilet, or in the bath or wash basin! And Johnny cannot reach the medicine cupboard to put his sandal there by mistake.

Possibly be in the toilet, or in the bath or wash basin!

“Let's look in the sitting room and dining room," Mummy suggests.

They lift up the cushions on the sofa and the armchairs and look under them. They get down on their knees and look under the coffee table.

They move the standard lamp and look all over the carpet. There is no sign of a brown sandal!

She takes Johnny by the hand and they look in the stove and the refrigerator. Then they open the doors of the kitchen cupboards and look there, too. There's nothing in the sink, where the hot and cold water taps are shining bright and clean. There's nothing on the draining-board, either. Mummy's tiled kitchen floor has nothing lying on it.

Mummy and Johnny peek into the laundry , too. The sink in the laundry is empty and clean. The washing machine is not being used, and when Johnny looks through the glass door, he can see nothing inside it.

They take a quick look in the spare bedroom . This is where Granny and Grandpa sleep when they come to visit. There are two single beds in the room. Between the beds is a bedside table with two small lamps on it. Each bed has a pink duvet over it. Mummy and Johnny each look under a bed and then all over the room, but there is no sign of the brown sandal.

Johnny's room is right at the end of the passage. It is a big, bright, sunny room, but it looks as though it has been hit by a storm.

All the cupboard drawers are open, with Johnny's clothes spilling out of them and on to the floor.

"You see, I did look for my sandal in my room," says Johnny with a grin.

Mummy gives him a look, but doesn't say anything. She looks through the shoes standing at the bottom of his wardrobe, but she cannot find the other brown sandal.

“Where on earth can that sandal have got to?" wonders Mummy. "I don't know where else to look."

Wait a minute," she says suddenly. She lifts the crumpled duvet off the bed and gives it a good shake.

And guess what!

The sandal falls fromthe folds of the bedspread, on to the floor!

B.your teacher will now divide you into different groups so that you can share your information with them. then, together you will make a poster of the different rooms you have discussed.

Assessment

LEARNING OUTCOME 4: WRITING The learner will be able to write different kinds of factual and imaginative texts for a wide range of purposes.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

4.1 writes to communicate information:

4.1.2 writes lists with headings;

4.4 designs media texts:

4.4.1 designs a simple poster and / or notice.

Memorandum

Divide the learners into eight groups. Let each group read a section related a particular room. They must then make a list of all the things that are found in that room. Each group member can write the list on a sheet of paper.

Redivide the learners into groups of eight. In each group there should be one learner from each room (group in the previous round). Each member of the new group reads his list of the things found in his particular room.

The group now makes a chart with pictures from magazines or drawn. It is important that they label the items found in the rooms.

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.
