Life orientation

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 about nanotechnology for water purification
RAW Reply
please someone correct me if I'm wrong but I think one can use nanoparticles, specially silver nanoparticles for water treatment.
Damian
yes that's correct

is there industrial application of fullrenes. What is the method to prepare fullrene on large scale.?
Rafiq
industrial application...? mmm I think on the medical side as drug carrier, but you should go deeper on your research, I may be wrong
