Colour the toys that cost the same, red.

Let us take a look at all the old toys on the shelf.

Which toys do you like best?

Draw a picture of any of the old toys.

My puppet:

  • Draw a face for your puppet.
  • Use different shapes, like a triangle, circle and square.


Learning Outcomes(LO’s)
THE ECONOMIC CYCLE The learner will be able to demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the economic cycle within the context of ‘the economic problem’.
We know this when the learner:
1.4 starts understanding that goods (toys, food, etc. ) have a price.
CREATING, INTERPRETING AND PRESENTING The learner will be able to create, interpret and present work in each of the art forms.
We know this when the learner:
1.10 ( visual arts ) - discovers simple geometric shapes such as circles, lines, triangles and squares and combines and arranges them in patterns.


Toys may be exhibited in class.

Make sure that you have enough magazines available in class.


  • Show the learners the video of Toy Story. Let them draw their favourite character.
  • Discuss the characteristics of the character (friendly, inconsiderate, caring, etc.)
  • Visit a toy shop.
  • Compare the prices of the different toys.
  • Arrange a fashion show with Barbie or other toys.
  • Allow the learners to dress in the clothes of different characters, e.g. Superman, Cowboy, etc.
  • Arrange a toy car race – work in groups.
  • Organise a series of game stations, e.g. top throwing, rope skipping, hop scotch, etc. Learners move on in a circuit, getting the opportunity to play each of the games for a specific time.
  • Group games, e.g. drop-the-handkerchief (Afr. vroteier), blind-man’s buff, cat and mouse, etc.
  • Make a puppet and have your own puppet theatre.

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?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?
What is lattice structure?
s. Reply
of graphene you mean?
