Grade7 – Language Highlights – Insight_Vision

Grade7 – Language Highlights – Insight_Vision

Students discussed the first 2 chapters from the reader ‘Bridge to Terabethia’ and analyzed the character with their feelings, actions, behavior, and dialogues. They also discussed the relationship of the character with each other and how does it unravel the themes of the book. An analysis based question on relationship was taken up in class to teach the students on how to attempt analytic question. Students were taught on how to understand the question focusing on the key words. Then the question was discussed in the class where everyone came up with their understanding and finally organised the answer descriptively, yet comprehensively.

Students also did a unit in the workbook and their homework was discussed too.

3D shapes are all around us…!

3D shapes are all around us…!

Our learners have learnt the 5 basic 3D shapes i.e. Sphere, Cone, Cube, Cuboid & Cylinder. After understanding all these shapes , learners played ‘Treasure hunt’ game wherein all the objects of the 5 shapes were hidden in the corridor. Learners were divided in 5 group , each was assigned one shape. They had to go and find out all the objects of their shape.

Learners were enjoyed this game and each team member contributed in searching objects of their group. They applied their understanding of 3D shapes  with real life objects and demonstrated good self management skills.

This same game was played with the parents during the 2nd PCM.

Recap of 28/11/2014

Settling Task: Learners wrote/illustrated their understanding about kindness.

[Unit Of Inquiry]

Learners played “orbit game” where, initially, they(some of the student who became planets) were asked to stand in a circle and rotate and revolve around the sun. They reflected that  we were colliding with each other. There was less space for us to move freely. Moreover all the planets are of different size and have different rotation and revolution, etc.

Then, they were given ropes of different size and were again asked to rotate and revolve. They were able to make out the difference between both the engagements. They came to a conclusion that the planets does not revolve and rotate in one circle. Also, they were introduced the term – orbit being the path on which the planets revolve and rotate. And, they came up with the first line of inquiry – Earth’s position in space.

[Language]

1) Learners revised the concept of contraction by doing the worksheet given.

2)They were introduced new spellings of the week- “space, rotate, revolve, solar, asked, before, through, another, large and should”. They wrote these words 3 times in their writing notebook.
