Giants

Educator section

Memorandum

To the educator

Using progress reports and profiles of the learners in Grade 1, the Grade 2 educator can assess the ability of each learner in the class.

The Grade 2 educator also needs to know which work has been covered in Grade 1 so that she can revise, consolidate and re-teach where necessary, before proceeding to the Grade 2 phonics, writing, reading etc. Make sure the learners understand the written instructions on each page. The learners furthermore need to know where and when to go for help when doing written work e.g. finding out how to spell a word etc.

The slower learners need continual support whereas the fast learners can be given additional work based on the activities for further stimulation.

Time schedule for the modules 1 – 7

All learners should complete all seven modules during the year. Allow them to progress at their own speed covering ± one and a half modules per term.

Jack and the Beanstalk introduce the learners to the concept of giants, gigantic buildings, animals and whales.

Interesting activities including riddles, class discussions and listening activities are developed around the theme of “Giants”.

  • Phonics: Revise or, ar and the silent e at the end of a word.

oor as in door

ar + e as in ware

Integration of themes

  • a Healthy environment

Discuss the reasons why some animals become extinct. How can this be prevented?

  • Human rights

Our heritage (buildings, country, customs) need to be preserved. Give reasons why this is necessary.

Talk about giants. Do or did they exist? Remember that in times gone by people were much shorter, so the giants of folk tales could have been the height of a basket ball player who could be 7ft or more. To the average 5 footer this could be gigantic. There are many giants in nature. Remind children of the dinosaurs and, of course, the largest animal of them all, the Blue Whale. Read the following piece about the Blue Whale.

The blue whale

The Blue Whale is the largest animal that ever lived. It is bigger than any dinosaur. It grows up to 30 metres long and can weigh over 135 tons. That is more than a hundred cars. It has a speckled blue-grey and white skin, quite small thin flippers and a large strong tail.

The blue whale eats krill. This is a small animal like a shrimp. Thousands of them live and swim around together in groups. The whale swims through these masses of krill and takes in tons of water and food. Then it squirts the water back out through the baleen which act like a sieve keeping the food in the whale's mouth and letting the water pass through.

Blue whales live in all the oceans. They feed in waters near the north and south poles. They travel in groups called pods. Whales migrate to warmer waters to breed. They make loud low moans that can travel great distances through the water. That is their way of communicating with one another.

Whales are mammals. The baby whale will grow inside its mother. When it is born it is 2 metres long and grows quickly. It will drink milk from its mother and swim close to her side.

what about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct
