3. What do you do?

4. What do your brothers and sisters do?

Sunday: At last a time to rest! What do you do with your family on Sundays?

  • Draw a picture to show what your family is doing on a Sunday.

Which pictures match each other? Who do you think should do the job? Join the pictures. Colour them in neatly.


While you have been doing your duties, your family has been busy with theirs. Do you think everyone likes doing his particular job?

  • Ask everyone the following questions to find out what they feel about the work they have to do at home.
  • The table helps you set out and compare answers.
  • Draw a picture of you doing one of the nasty jobs. How do you feel?

Assessment Standards(Ass)
We know this when the learner:
2.1 discusses children's rights and responsibilities;2.4 identifies values and morals from diverse South African cultures.
lo 3
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT 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.
We know this when the learner:
3.4 demonstrates appropriate behaviour in conflict situations;


List things that children can do.

Refer to children’s rights according to the constitution.

Keep the diary page that follows for a week. Encourage them to take on a responsibility if they don’t have one. They must still abide by the constitutional rights of children.

Summary of children’s rights

  • Children have the right to be heard and the responsibility to listen.
  • Children have the right to medical care and the responsibility to take care of themselves.
  • Children have the right to be educated and the responsibility to take learning seriously.
  • Children have the right to be loved and the responsibility to care for others.
  • Children have the right to learn the language of their parents and the responsibility to respect the languages of others.

Children have the right to be proud of their heritage, traditions and beliefs and the responsibility to respect the beliefs of others.

  • Children have the right to have a safe home and the responsibility to keep that home clean and tidy.
  • Children have the right to make mistakes and the responsibility to learn from their mistakes.
  • Children have the right to get enough to eat and the responsibility not to waste it.

Make the children aware of their responsibilities as well as their rights.

Discuss the learners’ findings and isolate one problem, e.g.

  • Toby’s mom has too much ironing. What do you think happens when she is tired of all the ironing?
  • Jill’s Dad is tired when he gets home from work and then he still has to mow the lawn? How does he feel?
  • Kate doesn’t want to feed the dog. Why not?

types of nano material
abeetha Reply
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.
Ramkumar Reply
what is nano technology
Sravani Reply
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

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?
