UOI : Learners discussed the statement, “Every system/organization needs to divide roles and responsibilities to efficiently run the organization.” Further, they acquired knowledge about 3 branches of government – Legislative, Executive and Judiciary.
As a class, they recited below poem
Later, they explored the below mentioned roles and understood the branches in detail.
Legislature : 1. The policy making body of India. 2.Controls all the money; taxes, borrows, and sets the budget. (executive branch cant raise or spend money without legislature’s permission) 3.Oversees, investigates, and makes the rules for the government and its officers. 4. also referred parliament
Judiciary : 1. Concerned with administration of justice 2.Referred as the “Supreme court of India” 3.has the power to review any law passed by the Parliament and can declare a law null and void if it violates the constitution. 4. It solves disputes between the Government of India and one or more states. 5.It solves disputes between two or more states 6.Judges if any law is unconstitutional
Executive : 1. Central Government comprises the President, the Vice President and the Cabinet Ministers 2.They implement the policies framed by the legislature 3.Does not pass laws or interpret them 4.Responsible for the daily administration and functioning of the state
Math :Ã‚Â Learners explored learning centres to understand the quadrilaterals. Through the engagement they concluded :
Quadrilateral can be made using different polygons. Polygons can be organised in the desired shape.
Size of the quadrilateral may vary but the angles of the quadrilateral remains the same.
TheÃ‚Â sum of the angle of a quadrilateral is always 360 degrees. (At the end of the session, we still had the disagreement over the last point by some of the learners – hence more exploration is our short term aim)
Language :Ã‚Â Learners were introduced to the new comprehension strategy – “Inference.” They understood that “Background Knowledge + Text/Visual clues = Inference” They, later, observed teacher inferring the text from the chapter 6 of Giver.
Create the mind map of characteristics of good governance as explained in the class. (Ensure to bring the print-out, if you are creating on ICT tool Mindmup)
You are provided the A4 paper with the title – Legislature, Judicial and Executive. Stick the same in your UOI notebook and note down the roles of each branch under the flip page. The roles are mentioned above in the blog.
Math : –
Create two quadrilaterals onÃ‚Â this online interactive quadrilateral – http://www.mathsisfun.com/geometry/quadrilaterals-interactive.html. Calculate the angles of the quadrilaterals in your notebook (A+B+C+D=?)
Students understood the meaning of Governance, why good governance is important and also the 8 characteristics of good governance were discussed as a class. Further, they understood about the three branches of governance, namely Legislative, Judicial and Executive. They also learned about the roles and responsibilities of these branches.
Students read the rest of Chapter six and inferred some information from the text and had put it down in the four quadrants sheet.
Create the mind map of characteristics of good governance as explained in the class based on your understanding about the text in the link given below:-
Students were enthusiastic to play the game of untangling themselves in a group. They were ask join hands with the student standing adjacent to them such that all the hands in the group are crossed. Later, they were instructed to use verbal communication or non-verbal communication to untangle themselves while demonstrating co-operation with the team members.
Once done, they reflected upon how through body gestures and communicating with each other helped them in the team work. They also understood that to complete a taskÃ‚Â in team, co-operation plays a major role.
Few glimpses of the same :
A) Complete the division of mixed fraction in your math notebook if incomplete.
B) Also try your hand to solve the sums on division using the link given below :
[Highlight Of The Day]
[Unit Of Inquiry] Students understood the meaning of Governance, why good governance is important and also the 8 characteristics of good governance were discussed as a class.
Learners did a worksheet on ‘Contextual meaning’ which had sentences from ‘ The Giver’. They also completed multiple choice questions worksheet as a revision for the reader.
Then they read Chapter 5 in pairs and discussed the gist of the chapter as a class. They played Kahoot and also answered few questions orally based on the chapter.
As part of ICT goals they were shown various formatting options on a google document which they will be using for an online journal for the reader.
Find the dictionary meanings of the words written in bold, in the worksheet given to you. Also make sentences from the words.(Both the tasks need to be done in the journal sheet as discussed in the class.)
Type out the pros and cons of Jonas’s community, in the online journal(To be done in a table as shown in class)
Type out the pros and cons of having someone select your career, in the online journal. (To be done in a table as shown in class.)
