Highlights and homework:- 6th December 2012

Highlights:-

UOI:-  Going ahead with the discussion of energy, students were introduced to the two states of energy i.e “Kinetic” and “Potential” by explaining through objects like rubber band, torch, battery, ball, hand-made pendulum etc . We led the discussion further as how potential energy gets converted into kinetic and vice versa. This was led through the conversion of deriving the definition of Potential (Potential energy is the stored energy) and Kinetic energy (Energy in motion). This helped them to conceptualize that all objects whether living or non-living possess energy either in the potential or the kinetic state.

Language:- Tuning in activity of “Matilda”/”George’s Marvelous medicine” was done by grouping students and giving each group a photo copy of the cover page of the reader. A certain set of questions were given which they had to individually answer by looking the cover page. Later they were asked to write down any 2 questions which they wanted to know about “Matilda”/”George’s Marvelous medicine” as the reader.

Homework:-

1. Poem no 2 “Its finally Friday” – Read the poem and answer the questions. (Complete the incomplete work in the poem book.)

Launching ‘Eco Club’ at FS…

Launching ‘Eco Club’ at FS…

Dear Students,

At our school we are starting ‘Eco Club’…

Luckily we have school which is located at very soothing and natural surroundings, which would provide best platform for ‘Eco Club’.

As this is the first ‘Club’ initiated in school, the members of this club would have great responsibilities to make it a huge success and set an example. [For now, we are introducing ‘Eco Club’ in Middle years (Grade 7, 8 and 9) only]

So, for a start we are going to have selection of ‘Members’ based on your creative activities and Ideas during ‘Nature Camp’.

Following are some sample activities you can undertake during Nature Camp…

  • ‘Biodiversity Chart’ of your camp
  • Collage of pictures collected related to ecology
  • Interviewing local people and their energy resource
  • Any specific details of local ecological issue – Report on that
  • Quadrant activity

We will have first ‘Eco Club’ meeting after Nature camp, where we will decide Name and Slogan for ‘Eco Club’. So, come up with your creativity on that too.
