Story-telling

ACTIVITY 1

TO SUGGEST AN ALTERNATIVE ENDING FOR THE STORY [LO 1.1.5]

TO RETELL INFORMATION / A STORY [LO 1.1.6]

TO RECOUNT AN EVENT WITH SUPPORT [LO 1.4.2]

TO LISTEN TO OTHERS AND ENCOURAGE THEIR ATTEMPTS TO SPEAK AN ADDITONAL LANGUAGE [ LO 1.5.2]

TO UNDERSTAND THE MORAL OF A STORY [3.1.2]

TO READ FOR PLEASURE – NON-FICTION AT AN APPROPRIATE READING AND LANGUAGE LEVEL [ 3.6.1]

Find information on at least one more tourist attraction anywhere in our country. Read about it. Paste your information on the back of this page.

Make sure that you know the contents well.

Turn to your partner and retell what you have read.

Listen to your partner retell what you have told him/her, to you.

Which one of you was most accurate in re-telling the information?

OR

Find a story/fable/folktale about something that can fly. Think wide: birds, ‘planes, space ships, hot air balloons – even rocket-propelled people – can fly. Make sure that you know what you have read, then turn and tell your partner the story. Listen to your partner telling the story (-ies) he has read.

NOW

Retell one of the following stories to your classmates.

(1)

Who is the Best ?

(an East African fable)

One day the animals were quarrelling about who was the best animal.

“I am,” roared the lion, “for I am the most feared. Everyone is terrified of me.”

“No, I am,” trumpeted the elephant, “because I am the biggest!”

“No, I am,” hissed the snake, “for I am the deadliest. No-one will survive my poison.”

“Am I not the one who flies the highest ?” cried the eagle.

This argument went on for a long time, each one claiming to be very important. The cheetah claimed that he was the fastest creature, the giraffe insisted that he was the tallest, the python stated that he was the longest, and the sheep was adamant that he was the most patient.

Finally they agreed to call Man and let him be the judge. Man came and said, “The best of all the animals is the cow because she is the most useful to me!”

The Bees and the Tortoise

(a fable from Mali)

The bees had made a new drum, and as bees love dancing, they danced and hummed for hours in celebration on that day. All the animals heard the noise coming from the hive and they came along, hoping to be invited to join in, but the bees kept their celebration all to themselves. The lion, the elephant, the leopard, the hartebeest, the buffalo, the antelope, the hog and even the tortoise were there.

After listening for a while, the animals grew so fond of the sound of the new drum that they decided to steal it. First the lion tried but he was stung by a hundred bees and had to run away. All the animals tried to steal the drum but none of them succeeded.

Then, at last, the tortoise offered to try. All the animals laughed heartily at this, but the tortoise went into the hive and told the bees that he was a master drummer. He played beautifully after the bees had given him permission to drum for a little while. Suddenly the drum disappeared! The clever tortoise had hidden it underneath his shell. He excused himself and walked away quietly. The bees were so angry that they tried to sting him, but to no avail – he was too well protected by his shell. That is why he had the confidence to try when everyone else had failed.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
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.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
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.

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.
Harper
Do you know which machine is used to that process?
