Math: Learners were introduced to the conversion of metric units. They were informed about the base 10 system of measurement including kilo-, hecto-, deca-, deci-, centi-, and milli-, with a base unit of measurements, such as metre, litre, or gram. Later, they practised conversion of the unit through sums and word problems. One of the examples used was ‘If a milkman delivers 15 l of milk daily, how many millilitres of milk does he deliver daily?’
1 l = 1,000 ml
15 x 1 l = 15 x 1,000 ml
So, 15 l = 15,000 ml
UOI: Learners reflected about yesterday’s engagement and further derived ‘Children worldwide face challenges, risks and opportunities.’ They also stated they need to be resilient to face any situation and further identified learner profile – courageous and caring and attitude – tolerance and empathy, that they would like to develop in the unit.
UOI: Discuss with your parents, challenges and risks faced by children. Take notes on a piece of paper provided to you.
