Module 7

Poems and poetry

1. Poems for inspiration

Your teacher is going to read some poems to you, which you will discuss in the class.

What to do

  • Use all the inspiration from poems, as well as group and class discussions, to prepare a SPEECH entitled ‘It boggles my mind!’
  • Obviously you need to choose something you truly find amazing and WOW your audience into being boggled by your information and deliverance too.
  • Plan your speech (2 to 3 minutes) below.
LO 2.1.2
LO 3.1.1

2. More amazing creatures

There are so many amazing creatures in nature and they can do some amazing things too! Read about some of them with your partner and then create a crossword puzzle. Your educator will supply the reading cards and TWO puzzle grids.

What to do

  • Once you have read the information, decide which words would be best to use in your puzzle. They are usually the key words. (Refer to the pugnacious ants cloze procedure.)
  • Plot your words in pencil on the grid provided. Try to connect as many words as possible so as to have only a few blackened blocks.
  • Once you are sure that you have used as many words as possible, number the blocks in which each word BEGINS.
  • Formulate the questions/clues. Number them ACROSS and DOWN.
  • Keep your grid with the answers to use as a memorandum.
  • Design a proper work card with your puzzle grid (without the answers) and questions and decorate/illustrate it appropriately.
  • Be sure to supply a heading to your work card.

Pencil the words in this grid and plan your answers in rough.

LO 3.9

3. BOOM !!!

THE LOUDEST NOISE ON EARTH

The loudest noise ever heard on earth was made not by an atomic or hydrogen bomb, but by a volcano.

On August 27, 1883, more than eighteen centuries after Pompeii had been buried by the ashes from Vesuvius, the entire island of Krakatoa in the East Indies blew up with a deafening roar that could be heard more than 5 000 km away. Stones, dust and ashes were hurled 26 km into the air and the eruption caused a 1,5 km tidal wave which swept over neighbouring islands and was still more than 30 cm high when it reached Cape Town, more than 7 000 km away!

Vast clouds of dust spread into the upper atmosphere, filtering the sunlight and producing beautiful sunsets that were visible all over the world. As far off as London these lingering effects of the great explosion were still being seen the following spring.

  • Did you know that without dust we would not have rain? Moisture in the air needs to cling to something to form a raindrop. That something is dust.
  • Did you know that the dust particles in the air cause light rays to split? When the rays, which are colourless, split, they then display colour, which we see in the beauty of a sunset. This is very much the way drops of water split rays to make a rainbow.
  • Did you know that dust particles are the cause of many allergies and illnesses and hay fever?
  • Did you know that most housewives and cleaners hate dust? It gets cleaned away and when you turn around it is back again! It causes problems in so many modern-day devices such as TV’s and computers!

measurement of elasticity of demand
John Reply
Price elasticity of demand= Percentage change in quantity demanded/ Percentage change in price
Jale
For example, suppose that a 10 percent increase in the price of an ice-cream cone causes the amount of ice cream you buy to fall by 20 percent. We calculate your elasticity of demand as
Jale
Price elasticity of demand =20 percent /10 percent = 2
Jale
In this example, the elasticity is 2, reflecting that the change in the quantity demanded is proportionately twice as large as the change in the price.
