The story of food

You already know that we get some of our food from plants. But how do these plants grow? Your educator will help you to plant a seed. Water your plant regularly and watch what happens. Draw pictures to show how it grows.

I plant the seed My plant after 4 days
My plant after 7 days My plant after 10 days
My plant after 13 days My plant after 16 days


Learning Outcomes(LO’s)
HEALTH PROMOTION The learner will be able to make informed decisions regarding personal, community and environmental health.
We know this when the learner:
1.4 identifies dangers and appropriate precautions on the route to school.
LO 2
SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT The learner will be able to demonstrate an understanding of and commitment to constitutional rights and responsibilities, and to show an understanding of diverse cultures and religions.
We know this when the learner:
2.4 sequences pictures of stories with a moral value from a range of South African cultures, including own culture.
HISTORICAL INTERPRETATION The learner will be able to interpret aspects of history.
We know this when the learner:
3.1 responds to stories about the past (e.g. listens to stories about the past and makes comments).
SCIENTIFICINVESTIGATIONSThe learner will be able to act confidently on curiosity about natural phenomena, and to investigate relationships and solve problems in scientific, technological and environmental contexts.
We know this when the learner:
1.1 (Plans) – plans an investigation independently (taking care of a plant).
We know this when the learner:
1.4 ( Drama ) – responds through drama to stimuli in games and stories, including making up endings to stories presented by the teacher;


The stories should not always be read, but should sometimes be told to the class as well. It can be a very good idea to have a special piece of clothing that marks story time, e.g. a story hat or story cloak, that the educator can put on to show when it is story time. Tell the learners the story of The little red hen.

The little red hen

A cat, a duck, a pig and a little red hen with her five little chickens all lived together on a farm. One day the little red hen found three grains of wheat. She picked them up very carefully and put them into her little basket. Then she ran as fast as she could to the cat, the duck and the pig.

“Cluck-cluck!” Look what I have found! Three grains of wheat! I want to sow the wheat but the ground is too hard. Who will help me dig the ground?” asked the little red hen.

“Not I,” mewed the black cat.

“Not I,” quacked the white duck.

“Not I,” grunted the brown pig.

“Very well,” said the little red hen, “then I shall dig it myself and my five little chickens will help me.”

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.
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
carbon nanotubes has various application in fuel cells membrane, current research on cancer drug,and in electronics MEMS and NEMS etc
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?
or in general
in general
Graphene has a hexagonal structure
