Grade 7

A healthy lifestyle

Module 2

How to address environmental health problems

Ways in which environmental health problems can be addressed.

Activity 1:

To embark on a project as a class or grade

[lo 1.2]

Class or grade activity

(The whole school can be involved in the activity.)

Here is a list of projects that can be undertaken by the class or grade. The projects can be completed within one day, a number of weeks, or can cover a whole term. Quite a number of skills can be addressed by undertaking such a project. The successful execution of such a project will have a positive effect on both humans and animals in the community and also promote the image of the school. There are many possibilities and learners need not do only the suggested projects. A sudden disaster (e.g. floods, an air disaster, etc.) can be used very effectively. Remember that it is very important to plan all the phases in order to achieve success. (Think of using things such as circular letters to all learners, advertisements in the school, media coverage, guest speakers, thank you letters, and so forth.) Explore the possibility of initiating and completing a new project every term!

Suggested projects

  • Collecting jerseys or clothing for Child Welfare
  • Collecting toys for a children’s home or nursery school
  • Collecting ingredients for soup for an old-age home or for a shelter for street children in winter
  • Collecting books for a school that doesn’t have a library yet
  • Organising a Christmas concert for the local old-age home or hospice
  • Taking floral bouquets and cards to the local hospital
  • Organising a coin-laying event for the local animal protection unit or the South African Guide Dog Association
  • Participating in Rose Day which is held annually in October and is organised by the Child Welfare Society or the Rotary organisation
  • Having a special Arbour Day event
  • Establishing a vegetable garden at your school for the needy people in your area

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?
