To solve a word puzzle

Activity 1:

To solve a word puzzle

[lo 3.7.5]

Let’s have a look at some real wild animals now.

Circle one letter from each word to find thirteen animals, birds and reptiles. The words in the clues will help. (Number one has been done for you.)

For example: 1. R-A-T = rat

  1. b r own t a il bi t e
Rat
  1. ears grass babies burrow field fast
  1. speak gay tropical feathers multi-coloured pet
  1. carry aggressive jump desert long-necked
  1. golden king roar jungle
  1. poison long scales quick tongue
  1. black forest large fur
  1. pink dirty greedy
  1. hunt striped growl fierce courageous
  1. small nervous quiet cheese hole
  1. timid speedy gentle herd
  1. angora horns hair mountains
  1. loud cross stubborn back hooves grey

Use each of the above words, with a collective noun, in a sentence.

( Make up a collective noun if you need to.)

Educator’s assessment:

Criteria 1 2 3 4
Correctness of sentences Requires assistance to create meaningful sentences Sentences too simple Correct, simple sentences Correct, imaginative sentences
Punctuation and spelling Poor – difficult to decipher Still developing – many errors Good – very few errors Excellent - no errors
Neatness Untidy Presentation inconsistent, greater care needed Good presentation Excellent presentation, great care taken

Assessment

LO 3
READING AND VIEWING The learner will be able to read and view for information and enjoyment, and to respond critically to the aesthetic, cultural and emotional values in texts.
3.3 reads for information:
3.3.2 scans graphs, timetables, etc. for specific information;
3.3.3 summarises a paragraph (e.g. identifies the main point and the topic sentence);
3.7 reads for pleasure:
3.7.5 solves word puzzles.

Memorandum

In this activity the focus is on REAL animals and not imaginary ones! Learners must look carefully at all the animals in the picture. Have a discussion about what animals they can see and what they are called. In the table that follows the picture, words that are associated with each animal are listed in a block. Learners must guess what animal is being referred to. One letter in each word must be circled to make up the animal’s name.

  1. b r own t a il bi t e
Rat
  1. ears grass babies burrow field fast
Rabbit
  1. speak gay tropical feathers multi-coloured pet
Parrot
  1. carry aggressive jump desert long-necked
Camel
  1. golden king roar jungle
Lion
  1. poison long scales quick tongue
Snake
  1. black forest large fur
Bear
  1. pink dirty greedy
Pig
  1. hunt striped growl fierce courageous
Tiger
  1. small nervous quiet cheese hole
Mouse
  1. timid speedy gentle herd
Deer
  1. angora horns hair mountains
Goat
  1. loud cross stubborn back hooves grey
Donky

Once they have completed this part of the activity, the learners are then asked to use the words in sentences. The important thing to notice, is that they also need to include a collective noun in the sentence. This means that they may have to make up collective nouns for many of the animals. This is meant to be a fun creative activity and learners can share their suggestions for creative nouns with each other once the activity is complete.

Draw their attention to the fact that they will be assessed on the correctness of their sentences, so they must write full sentences that make sense, even though they are inventing collective nouns. Punctuation, spelling and neatness will also be assessed.

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.

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.
