Grade 4

People who served mankind

Module 6

Your family and relatives

You like history, because it is all about people and the past. all people, including you and your family, have their own family history.

Activity 1

To acquire information from different sources [lo 1.2]

The family you belong to is important to you.

  • What is a family?
  • Talk to a friend about your thoughts.

First we are going to do two exercises on how to use sources on family history. The following will help you to understand family sources.

  • Be familiar with all the forms of address of the different members of a family.
  • The symbol = means to be married.
  • These lines indicate the children of a married couple.

Activity 1

How to use sources on family history [lo 1.2]

What is:

  • the name of her brother?
  • the names of her parents?
  • the name of her aunt?
  • the name of her sister?
  • the names of her grandparents?

Activity 2

To determine a family’s history with the help of clues [lo 1.2]

These four people are members of the Jantjies family, two brothers and two sisters. You have been a friend of the family for many years.

Try to establish the history of the jantjies family with the help of certain clues. draw the table below in your exercise book and use the clues that follow to fill in the missing dates.

  • Alexander was born in 1898.
  • Sophia was born 5 years after Alexander.
  • Ben was born 6 years after Sophia.
  • Felisia was born 7 years before Ben.
  • Felisia got married 30 years after Sophia was born.
  • Alexander died 10 years after Felisia got married.
  • Ben got married 38 years after Felisia’s birth.
  • Sophia was married for 19 years before Ben got married.
  • Alexander got married 1 year after Sophia.
  • Felisia died 40 years after Ben got married.
  • Sophia died 1 year before Felisia died.
  • Ben died in the same year as Alexander.

The following two exercises will help you to use the story of your family history.

Activity 3

How to use sources to tell the story of your family history [lo 1.3]

(a)collect the names of your own family and try to compile your own family tree with the help of sources!


LEARNING OUTCOME 1: HISTORICAL ENQUIRY The learner will be able to use enquiry skills to investigate the past and present.

Assessment standard

We know this when the learner:

1.2 answers questions: uses information from sources to answer questions;

1.3 communicates answers: communicates knowledge and understanding in a variety of ways.


(a) Alexander

are you nano engineer ?
what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
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?
how to fabricate graphene ink ?
for screen printed electrodes ?

I start with an easy one. carbon nanotubes woven into a long filament like a string
many many of nanotubes

what is system testing?
preparation of nanomaterial
Victor Reply
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
