Grade 5

Rights and responsibilities

Module 10

The role and support of friends

The importance of the role and support of friends in difficult times

It is important for learners in a class group to care about one another and to know what is happening in their classmates’ lives that are difficult for them, but also what makes them happy.

The assignment set out below could be an ongoing project for the year. In this way everyone could be aware of one another’s good and bad times and support one another.

Activity:

To make a special “i” parcel

[lo 2.3]

  • Every learner brings a paper bag to school. The size of the bag should be between 10 cm and 15 cm.
  • Every learner makes a special “I” parcel.
  • Decorate your parcel, e.g. by writing you name on it in sign-writing, and pasting a drawing or photo of yourself, your family or pet on the bag.
  • Also write a few sentences about yourself or what is important to you, on the paper bag (e.g. I love playing the piano; My favourite movie is Shrek 2 .)
  • Write more personal things that affect you, on pieces of paper that you fold up, or on small cards, and put them into the bag. For example: my plans for the year, my wishes for the year, things of which I am afraid, things that make me happy, things that happen to me and make me unhappy.
  • Now pin all these bags in rows against the wall or hang them up by means of a piece of string.
  • Also pin an empty envelope with your name on it below your paper bag.
  • Once a week (e.g. the first five minutes of the first period on a Monday), allow time for learners to read one another’s messages or to update their bags. During the rest of the week learners could write “caring” letters to one another and ‘post’ them in the envelopes with their names on.
  • It is very important that everyone should realise that this is a project that should be tackled with sensitivity and compassion. Fooling around and insults must not be tolerated! And no one may read someone else’s ‘mail’. If the educator is aware of a specific problem or unhappy experience of a learner, he/she could write a special letter.

Assessment

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:

2.1 applies children’s rights and responsibilities to a range of problem situations;

2.2 discusses instances of stereotype, discrimination and bias, and presents a plan to deal with them in own local context;

2.3 discusses the significance of friends in times of tragedy and change;

2.4 discusses the contributions of women and men in a range of cultural contexts;

2.5 discusses festivals and customs from a variety of religions in South Africa.

Memorandum

The learning material in modules 8 to 13 link very closely with that of module 1-7, but now the emphasis is on human rights. Respect for cultural values and the promotion of understanding and tolerance for diversity in the community are given priority. Activities centred around racism also offer the opportunity to identify and address possible violations of this nature in the school or community.

College algebra is really hard?
Shirleen Reply
Absolutely, for me. My problems with math started in First grade...involving a nun Sister Anastasia, bad vision, talking & getting expelled from Catholic school. When it comes to math I just can't focus and all I can hear is our family silverware banging and clanging on the pink Formica table.

Not really they are just easy concepts which can be understood if you have great basics. I am 14 I understood them easily.

The given of f(x=x-2. then what is the value of this f(3) 5f(x+1)
virgelyn Reply
hmm well what is the answer
Abhi
If f(x) = x-2 then, f(3) when 5f(x+1) 5((3-2)+1) 5(1+1) 5(2) 10

how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4

make 5/4 into a mixed number, make that a decimal, and then multiply 32 by the decimal 5/4 turns out to be

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul
hmm
Abhi
is it a question of log
Abhi

why surface tension is zero at critical temperature
Shanjida
I think if critical temperature denote high temperature then a liquid stats boils that time the water stats to evaporate so some moles of h2o to up and due to high temp the bonding break they have low density so it can be a reason
