Sa and our symbols

  • Here is our flag. Colour it in correctly.
  • What is the colour of our flag?
  • This is our national anthem.

Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrikaNkosi sikelel ‘ iAfrikaMaluphakanyisw’ uphondo IwayoYiswa imithandazo yethuNkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo.Morena boloka setjhaba sa hesoO fedise dintwa le matchwenyeho,O se boloke, O se boloke setjhaba sa hesoSetjhaba sa South Afrika – South AfrikaUit die blou van onse hemel,Uit die diepte van ons see,Oor ons ewige gebergtes,Waar die kranse antwoord gee,Sounds the call to come together,And united we shall stand ,Let us live and strive for freedom,In South Africa our land.

  • In the national anthem, we combine four of our languages, Xhosa, Sesotho, Afrikaans and English. See how well you can sing it.

The children notice that Zero had a strange kind of necklace made of red rock. They had never seen anything like it before. Zero was proud of it because he said there was nothing like it on Earth. It was unique. This red rock was only found on Mars.

We have unique plants and animals in South Africa too. We use them as symbols to remind us how special our country is. For example, South Africa is the only country in the world where the Protea grows naturally. The Giant King Protea is the national flower of South Africa. We also have a national tree, Yellowwood ; bird, Blue Crane ; animal, Spring bok ; and fish, Galjoen .

  • Colour the pictures or try to draw a larger version of each one to display in your classroom.
  • Choose one of our national symbols and tell the class about it.
  • Tear pieces of paper out of a newspaper or magazine and paste it on the fish’s body. The fish’s body must look as if it is full of scales.

Memorandum

  • The learners will also explain the flag, motto and our national emblems to Zero. Discuss each section fully, allowing learners to ask questions and express their thoughts. Display our national flag in the classroom.
  • For enrichment the learners can find out more about the national symbols and prepare for an oral exercise.

Colours of the flag:

Blue, red, green, black, white, yellow.

  • The most general meanings given to these colours: red – bloodshed; blue – open skies; green – land; black – black people; white – white people; yellow – natural resources – gold.

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
