The Culture Card Game:

Learners work on their own and make a pack of playing cards that depicts his or her culture. The cards should preferably be made on sturdy paper or manila cardboard of 6 cm by 9 cm, and can be illustrated by means of drawings or collages of pictures and letters. They should be numbered: 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace and Joker.

Hint : It is a good idea to cover the cards with Contact so that they will be more attractive and durable. Make a container for them. To make them look more like the real thing the back of each card could be covered with gift wrap or other attractive paper. Creative learners could even make their own design for the backs of the cards, and photocopy it. It is important to remember that the backs of the cards must all look alike.

The cards should depict the following aspects of the learner’s culture:

2 . Favourite pastime

3. Favourite film(s) and books or magazine(s)

4. Favourite music group / soloist

5. Ancestors, and origins

6. Preferred kind(s) of sport or sport

7. Traditional foods of your cultured group

8. Favourite public figure

9. Role model

10. The traditional dress of the cultural group

Jack Wedding ceremony and customs of the cultural group

Queen Home language or languages

King Religious preference

Ace Who are you?

Joker Characteristics that are peculiar to the learner and the cultural group.

How the game is played:

Learners work in pairs. Shuffle the cards well. Play “snap” with your team mate. In other words, the players take turns to put out one card at a time. As soon as two of a kind appear, it is a “Snap” situation. The first player to shout “Snap!” has to explain his or her “culture card”, once the player has explained the card is put aside. The person who has the most “snap” cards is the winner. Write down how many winning cards the winner has gained in the game.

Now choose new pairs and play the game again. At the end of the period the totals are added up and the player with the highest score is the overall winner in the class.

Hint: In order to gain the maximum learning experience learners should choose partners who differ most culturally from themselves.


Learning outcomes (LOs)
LO 1
Promotion of Health The learner will be able to make informed decisions regarding personal, community and environmental health.
Assessment standards (ASs)
We know this when the learner:
1.1 illustrates and evaluates the influence of ecological, social, economic, cultural and political factors on own personal choice of diet;
1.2 develops and implements an environmental health programme;
1.4 critically evaluates resources on health information, health services and a range of treatment options, including HIV/AIDS;
1.5 discusses ways to apply insights gained from participating in an activity related to national health or a safety promotion programme.

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.

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.
