Fun games

Fun games for groups: (invasion games)

Activity 1

To play fun games in groups [lo 4.1]

These games can be played out of doors or, if the weather is bad, in the school hall. (Some of the games have been adapted from the book Crows and Cranes , University Publishers, 1987, Justus Potgieter and Jan Malan).

Foxes and geese

The only material needed for this game is one coloured band per group and a whistle for the educator.

Divide the class into groups of 4 - 6 learners.

The groups are called “Geese” and they stand in a single row. The front “Goose” stands with his/her hands on his/her hips and the others place their hands around the waist of the “Goose” in front of him/her.

The “Goose” who stands last in line puts a coloured band in the waistband of his/her sports shorts. A “Fox” is chosen for each group.

As the game is about to begin, the “fox” stands in front of the row of “geese”.

When the educator blows the whistle, the “fox” tries to rob the “geese” of the coloured band.

The “fox” is not allowed to hold onto the “geese” and the “geese” are not allowed to use their hands to ward off the “fox”.

When the “fox” has succeeded in robbing the “geese” of their “tail”, the whole team has to sit down. The group that succeeds in outmanoeuvring the “fox” for the longest period of time is the winner.


Material for the game: a cricket or tennis ball for every two groups.

Divide the class into groups of 5 - 10 learners. There must be an equal number of groups.

Two groups stand at a distance of 5 m opposite each other.

Each group tries to roll or throw the ball between the legs of their opponents.

One point is allocated to the one group if an opponent from the other team tries to catch the ball but drops it.

One point is scored each time that the group succeeds in sending the ball through the legs of their opponents.

The team with the highest score at the end of the game is the winner.

Wolf in the woods

Material: blackboard chalk or a rope to mark off the “house” and the “cave”.

The educator selects a “mother goat” and a “wolf”.

The “mother goat” stands in her house.

The “wolf” stands in his cave.

The “kids” run around freely and gambol in the woods.

When “Mother Goat” calls, “Children, children come home!” all the “kids” must run to the demarcated “house”.

The “wolf” must now try to catch some of the “kids”.

When a “kid” has been caught, he/she has to sit in the “wolf’s” cave.

When the “kids” are safely inside the house, the “Mother Goat” calls, “Children, children, go play in the woods!” All the remaining “kids” then go to play in the “woods”.

The last remaining “kid” is the winner.



The learner will be able to use acquired life skills to achieve and extend personal potential to respond effectively to challenges in his or her world.

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
I got X =-6
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
oops. ignore that.
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
is it a question of log
I rally confuse this number And equations too I need exactly help
But this is not salma it's Faiza live in lousvile Ky I garbage this so I am going collage with JCTC that the of the collage thank you my friends

Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes
what is the k.e before it land
what is the function of carbon nanotubes?
I'm interested in nanotube
what is nanomaterials​ and their applications of sensors.

Yes, Nanotechnology has a very fast field of applications and their is always something new to do with it...
Himanshu Reply
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
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
