Arts and culture

Grade 6

Personal and social skills

Module 1

Visual arts: colour

Activity 1: (individual)

[lo 3.6]

A quantity of fruit and vegetables is arranged in the classroom. You must select a portion of what you see to draw and then to paint. But first make a small rectangular frame that will help you to select a portion of what you see to make a satisfactory composition.

Take a piece of paper, fold it in half and then cut or tear:

Look through the frame and select the part of the arrangement that you want to draw. Before you begin to draw, answer the following questions:

I can’t see more than three fruits and/or vegetables inside my frame. Is this true or false?

The fruit or vegetable with the strongest colour are more or less in the middle of my frame. True or false?

What I see through my frame does not make one side look heavier than the other side. True or false?

If one or more of the statements are false, you must move your frame so that it will be true.

Draw the portion you see through your frame on your paper.

Choose any geometric shape, for example a circle, a square, a rectangle, etc. and draw this over your drawing. Paint everything inside of the geometric shape with warm colours and everything outside of the shape with cold colours. Ask your educator to tell you about warm and cold colours.

Then use primary colours to paint the fruit or/and vegetables. Remember that you can mix them to make secondary colours. You can also use black and white to make your colours darker or lighter. You may mix your primary and secondary colours so as to get tertiary colours.


The learner is able to: 1 2 3 4
Follow instructions
Accept responsibility for their own work
Distinguish between warm and cold colours
Create a satisfactory composition
Use tertiary colours
Create light and dark tone values

Activity 2: (group work/individual)

[lo 3.6]

Working in your groups, each of you will now be making a fruit or vegetable from paper maché . This fruit/vegetable will be one that is indigenous to Africa. (Paper maché is a mixture of starch or wallpaper glue and torn up pieces of newspaper.)

Use the round shapes that your educator has asked you to bring to school and paste down the first layer of pieces of paper which have been soaked in the starch or wall paper glue. Make sure that your pieces of paper overlap!

Once this has dried a little, you must apply the second layer on top of the first and continue in this way. To build the shape of the fruit you will have to use the paper maché almost like clay – take some of the pieces of soaked paper in your hand and squeeze out the excess moisture/glue/starch. You can then form this into the shapes you need to add to the basic round shape.You are building a three-dimensional object . This is not flat like a piece of two-dimensional (length and breadth) paper.

When the fruit or vegetable you are making has dried and has become hard, it can be painted. Each group must decide together what to do with their fruit and vegetables. You could put it into a bowl or use it as props for the drama classes.


The learner is able to: 1 2 3 4
Take part in a group activity
Contribute to group work, discussion and planning
Accept cultural differences
Accept the opinions of others
Create three-dimensional forms


Learning Outcomes(LOs)
LO 3
PARTICIPATION AND COOPERATION The learner is able to display personal and social skills while participating in arts and culture activities as an individual and in a group.
Assessment Standards(ASs)

  • cooperates with other group members during arts activities;
  • is able to make his or her own contribution within the group;
  • accepts fellow learners;
  • shares resources, choice of materials and negotiates choice of subject matter in group project with other learners, with focus on:
  • joint decision-making;
  • presentation;
  • safety;
  • the environment;
  • cultural diversity.

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

algebra 2 Inequalities:If equation 2 = 0 it is an open set?
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.

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
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?
