Journeys

Module 6

Going to school

Going to school.

  • Every day we make the journey from home to school.

- How do you get to school?

- What happens on your way to school?

- So many people are using the roads. What makes it safe for so many to be on the road at the same time?

  • Road safety rules are not only for the cars, but for pedestrians as well. Almost half of the people who are killed in road accidents every year are pedestrians. It is very important that pedestrians know and obey the road safety rules.
  • Write down some of the important rules that you know for pedestrians. Use the words in brackets to help you. (pavement; left; play; kerb)
  • When you come to school, look out for some of the signs which guide pedestrians or make it safe for them to use the road.
  • What signs did you see? Draw them here.
  • Where should pedestrians cross the road? Draw the safest place to cross the road.
  • Sometimes the rules are not written down or there are no signs at the side of the road. For that reason it is important to know them.
  1. If there is no marked crossing, always take the shortest path across the road.

2. If you are not able to walk on a pavement and have to walk in the road, always face oncoming traffic; in other words, walk on the right hand side of the road.

Wear bright colours that are easily seen.

The rules of the road make it safer to use the road. We have rules everywhere to keep us safe. Our parents make rules for us at our homes, which keep us safe and healthy. The government makes rules for our country. At school, there are many rules for our safety and hygiene, and to help us live and work together peacefully.

  • Think of some of the rules in your classroom. Make some signs for your classroom to remind the learners of the correct way to behave in class. Think of the road signs and draw your signs in a similar way. You can plan it here and then draw a bigger version for the classroom.
  • Your school must be a safe place for you to work and play. The rules make sure that everyone knows what to do. Sometimes we are expected to know things that are not written in the rulebook.
  • What is wrong in this cloakroom?
  • Imagine you are making a journey into the country. Play this game to see the progress you make. You will need a dice or make a paper cube and number each face with the numbers 1 – 6.
  • Your layers will prevent the worst of the dirt getting through to your container. Naturally you cannot drink this water, as the germs are tiny enough to slip through your filter.
  • What do you think will get rid of the germs?
  • Think of a friend with whom you would like to make a journey. Write his/ her name down.
  • Why would this person be a good companion on your journey?

The journey is long and boring. answer these questions and find out.

  • Will your friend talk to you or read a book?
  • You have only dull, healthy food for the trip and your friend has tasty treats. What will a good friend do?
  • You have to stop on the way to visit your mother's old friend who hates children. Will your friend go with you or promise to meet you afterwards?
  • We can say that a good friend is , and .Obeying the rules that are responsible for our health is also very important. We need to keep fit and eat healthily. Keeping fit means exercising our musclesOur bodies are amazing in all the things they can do. In your groups, prepare a show, almost like a circus, to show off all the amazing ways your body can twist and bend and move forwards and backwards. Your show must be like a concert that the others can watch. Think of a way to present your show so that it will be interesting for the others to watch.
  • Use this checklist to make sure you have included everything your show must have.

Abhijith Reply
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.

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
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
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
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
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
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.
