Make your own opinion about how you should look after your own body.

Remember exercise is important too!

Write out your opinion on folio. Did you answer all three parts of the question? How well do you think you have answered? Tick the box, which shows how you feel about your answers.

Task: Is my diet healthy?

In your groups, plan three questions you need to ask your moms to check if you have a healthy diet. Think of the information that you have read about food and what you already know about healthy food.

Write your questions.

Write Mom’s or Dad’s answers.

Now that you have collected your data, compare your answers with those of your friends.

  • Do you still think that you have a healthy diet?
  • What can you do to improve the way you eat?

Ask five of your friends how many times a month they eat fast food.

  • Complete the diagram.

Who of your friends has the healthiest diet?

  • It is important that the children see that the dietary rules in many religions are attempts to honour their gods. Sometimes they came about as a matter of simple hygiene. But at this level, it can be regarded as keeping their bodies pure and healthy as a way of thanking God for the gift of their lives.
  • In completing the above task, reassure atheists or children who do not go to church that they can simply give their own opinion. Children who are able or wish to do their own research can look up the dietary rules of other religions and share them with the class.
  • The rubric can be used to define the task for the children or yourself to assess their work. Explain to the children what you would expect from them to earn a happy face or, if you were assessing, a rating of 5. They must include the 3 parts of the question and, for example, when talking about exercising to have a healthy body, they must give a reason. Why do they think exercise is important?
  • Remind the children of the importance of exercise in building a healthy body. Muscles need to stretch and move. One should not stay in a sitting position all day. Include a few lessons of movement: walking, jogging, skipping and running. Even dancing will make the muscles move . Bring music into the lesson or ask the children to bring theirs and allow free ‘dance’ time at the end of the lesson.
  • In each session include a few exercises to help suppleness, touching toes (allow bent knees, especially at first) sitting cross legged, stretching bodies into different shapes. Always emphasize care of the back and only to do what your body can do – don’t copy your neighbour and listen to your own body. If something is sore, STOP! End off with a game (or the dance time) and a cool down time.
  • Children can lie or sit with eyes closed in a completely relaxed position for the last few minutes. Choose a winner or allow them to stand and return to line or class one at a time. This also serves to restore discipline after an exciting lesson!

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
