Personal and social skills

Module 2

Music: to sing a round

Activity 1:

To sing a round

[lo 3.5]


This is the notation of the round Viva la Musica .

Make a graphic representation of the melody in all three phrases.

Phrase 1
Phrase 2
Phrase 3


Choose the correct description with regard to the melody:

Phrase 1 Makes a leap Moves mostly step by step
Phrase 2 Makes a leap Moves mostly step by step
Phrase 3 Makes a leap Moves mostly step by step

Choose the correct description with regard to the rhythm:

Phrase 1 Thrusts forward Less movement and syncopation Repetition of previous phrase
Phrase 2 Thrusts forward Less movement and syncopation Repetition of previous phrase
Phrase 3 Thrusts forward Less movement and syncopation Repetition of previous phrase

STEPS 3 and 4

Divide into groups and follow the teacher’s instructions.

The colour tone changes because harmony is created. The same harmony is used throughout.

Choose the word that is best suited:
How long or short the notes are
The melody
The sound of the combined notes

Activity 2:

To sing a two-part song and to produce warm and cold sounds

[lo 3.5]


This is a traditional Zulu children’s song: Siyanibingelela (We greet you).

Step 2

Divide into two groups (warm and cold) and follow the teacher’s instructions to sing the two-part song.


What does warm sound like, and what does cold sound like?

Try the following and listen to the difference:

Clap with flat hands Clap with cupped hands
Shake tin with pebbles Place your hand on the tin, and then shake it.
Strike a hanging triangle with a metal stick Hold the triangle in your hand, then strike it
Snap your teeth with your mouth open Snap your teeth with your mouth closed
Clear, sharp, open sounds Dull, closed sounds(more resonant)

Add more examples, i.e. two different sounds on the same instrument.


Follow the teacher’s instructions and perform the song with an “instrumental” interlude.

Activity 3:

To combine two different songs and to sing it as a two-part song

[lo 3.5

Step 1

Learn the following two songs:

The two songs differ in character – They sound different. Why?


The class is divided into two groups e.g. girls (yellow) and boys (blue)

Girls (yellow) sing Colours and immediately afterwards the boys (blue) sing John Brown .

The two groups sing together! The two groups must first read through ? below quietly – in a whisper – before singing it.

This is not easy – keep practising until everyone starts on the right note and sings together. The educator can help you to join in at the right time.

Step 3

When two primary colours are combined, a new colour is created: Yellow + Blue = Green.

When two songs are sung together we also get a new “colour” or song, but some of the elements of the music must be the same.

Step 4

Your teacher will add the accompaniment. Can you hear that the same chords are used, otherwise it will not sound right.

Step 5

Now sing ? using la-la or any other sound.


Sing your school song or Nkosi Sikilel’iAfrica and John Brown together!

It does not sound good!

Why not?


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)
We know this when the learner:
GENERALIn regard to 3.1 – 3.6 below:
  • 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.
MUSIC (3.5)
  • sings and/or plays in a group – canons, rounds and two-part songs from at least three cultural traditions of South Africa;
  • extends and develops given snippets of dialogue with a partner, showing ability to “feed off” and respond to partner’s ideas;
  • assumes both leader and follower roles willingly in dramatic activities;

Questions & Answers

how do they get the third part x = (32)5/4

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?

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

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?
