English first additional language

Grade 5

Module 21

Information and opinions

ACTIVITY 1

TO COLLECT AND RECORD INFORMATION ON A GRAPH [LO 5.3.2]

TO USE THE INFORMATION TO CREATE A GRAPH [LO 5.4.2]

TO USE THE INFORMATION FROM THE GRAPH TO WRITE A TEXT [LO 5.4.3]

Do you have a special interest ?

Most people are interested in something. Some people, however, are quite fanatical about their hobbies and interests.

Do a survey in your class about hobbies and interests . Design a graph and write the initials of the person into the block of his/her interest or hobby. You may even wish to add a couple of topics of your own to the graph.

Show your teacher your completed graph. Compare the results of your class to that of another class in your grade.

Once you have completed your survey, write a few sentences explaining your results and telling the reader about your findings.

Take a few minutes to tell your partner

about your hobby or interest

ACTIVITY 2

TO EXPRESS AN OPINION AND GIVE A REASON FOR IT [LO 2.1.3]

TO DESCRIBE THE PURPOSE OF SOMETHING [LO 2.3.4]

JUST A THOUGHT!

Many of today’s successful entrepreneurs – and even inventors - started out by making their hobbies and interests ‘pay’!

SAY YOUR SAY!

Select one of the inventions on the next page and state your point of view:

whether it is the best / worst invention ever

and why . OR

Choose any item and describe what it looks like (without saying what it is)

and for what purpose it is used. Describe this to your classmates.

Allow them to guess the item.

Assessment

LO 2

SPEAKING The learner will be able to communicate effectively in spoken language in a wide range of situations.

We know this when the learner:

2.1 interacts in an additional language:

2.1.2 takes part in a conversation on a familiar topic;

2.1.3 expresses an opinion and gives a reason for it;

2.3 uses additional language to communicate information:

2.3.4 describes the purpose of something (e.g. a familiar tool and what it is used for);

2.4 uses additional language creatively:

2.4.1 tells a story;

2.4.2 performs poems, songs and simple plays;

2.4.4 imagines and describes possibilities.

LO 5

THINKING AND REASONING The learner will able to use language to think and reason, and access, process and use information for learning.

We know this when the learner:

5.2 uses language for thinking:

5.2.7 expresses cause and effect;

5.2.8 expresses opinions and gives reasons for them;

5.2.9 discusses advantages and disadvantages;

5.3 collects and records information in different ways:

5.3.2 designs, draws and labels maps, plans, charts, graphs and diagrams;

5.4 transfers information in different ways:

5.4.3 uses information form a chart, graph or diagram to write a text.

Memorandum

ACTIVITY 1

This is an interesting activity – but beware! It can grow quite rowdy. Allow the learners to do the survey. Discuss the rules concerning orderliness (vs chaos !) and be firm. Otherwise this activity can be a nightmare …

If your class is large, allow the learners to select a cross-section group and only work with them.

Display the graphs. Discuss the findings. Invite the other classes in the grade to inform your class about their findings.

Allow for discussion: differences and how to cope; specially talented people vs other-talented what makes one person interested in one thing and the next person not; etc. Let the ideas flow.

Once the survey has been completed, the learner must write a few sentences explaining or expanding on the results of the survey.

See page 4: People make money from hobbies. How? Develop this idea within your class. You may be surprised to find that some learners are already earning from their hobbies. Perhaps compile a booklet with ideas for others.

Extension of task :

Feel free to use the following grid for another survey.

JUST FOR FUN ! Do a sport survey among your peers.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20
Rugby
Hockey
Netball
Soccer
Swimming
Gym
Horse riding
Other
Total of each sport!

ACTIVITY 2

This task is quite well explained in the learners’ unit. A choice is given – allow the learners the freedom to choose.

The second choice could develop into quite an interesting oral. Turn it into a quiz.

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
