Grade 09 COS (Physics) – Journal writing

Experiment 1 : Hooke’s law

Experiment 2 : Measurement of density of regularly shaped object, irregularly shaped object and water

Submission date : 25/09/2013

Write the experiments in the journal according to the  the format which has already been shared with you. The observation column should be drawn on the blank page at the left hand side and the graph in the graph paper given at the back. The observation column should be made according to the independent variable and dependent variables. Repetition should also be done. All the calculation work should be done below the observation column including the gradient. The graph should have proper heading, axes specification with units and the scale chosen. The points should should be marked using a cross symbol. Make sure that you are writing a detailed conclusion, errors occurred and the evaluation.

Grade – 5, Reciprocity (Highlights and Homework,20/09/13)

UOI: An interesting activity for the new unit wherein the learners were  taken to the science laboratory to understand the key concepts such as Form ( what is it like?); Function (How does it work?); and Change ( How is it changing?) related to various materials. This activity helped the learners to  look at their new unit through these questions and also use their various senses ( touch, smell etc. ) to learn appreciate  these materials and their use in their lives. 

Language -: Read the chapter – 2 from “The Firework-Maker’s Daughter”. Students comprehended the text read. Students also identified the adjectives used in this chapter.

Homework -:

Language -: Mark all the adjectives used in the chapter – 2 in the text book.
