INSTRUCTIONALPROCEDURES

PERIOD 1: Air

 PRESENTATION TEACHER’S ACTIVITY PUPIL’S ACTIVITY STEP 1Introduction of the topic The teacher revisits the previous lesson on the existence of air Pupils pay attention STEP 2Explanation She demonstrates that air occupies space by blowing air into the balloon to inflate it as the pupils do the same Pupils participate and pay attention STEP 3Demonstration Using, the inflated balloon she and the pupils let out the air in the balloon to model air exerting pressure Pupils pay attention

CLASS ACTIVITY: Pupils watch a video clip and carry out an experiment that shows that air occupies space and exerts pressure using bottles, balloons, straw and water

CLASSWORK: As in evaluation

CONCLUSION: The teacher commends the pupils positively

PERIOD 2 and 3: Parts of a computer. Ball games

 PRESENTATION TEACHER’S ACTIVITY PUPIL’S ACTIVITY STEP 1INTRODUCTION The teacher revisits the previous lesson on functions of scanner, printer and hard disk Pupils pay attention STEP 2EXPLANATION The teacher explains the functions of the Flash drive- Flash drives are used to store any type of data file, or to move data from one computer to another. OTG- An OTG or On The Go adapter (sometimes called an OTG cable, or OTG connector) allows you to connect a full sized USB flash drive or USB A cable to your phone or tablet through the Micro USB or USB-C charging port. USB- The Universal Serial Bus (USB) is technology that allows a person to connect an electronic device to a computer. It is a fast serial bus. RAM- Random-access memory (or simply RAM) is the memory or information storage in a computer that is used to store running programs and data for the programs. Data (information) in the RAM can be read and written quickly in any order. ROM- ROM(Read OnlyMemory) is a memory chip whose main function is to store data. You can only read the data of ROM and cannot make any changes to it Pupils pay attention and participates STEP 3DEMONSTRATION The teacher leads the pupils to the playground and demonstrates some of the skills in ball games including kicking, passing, throwing, catching, dribbling etc Pupils participate STEP 4NOTE TAKING The teacher writs a short note on the board The pupils copy the notes in their books

NOTE

Functions of computer peripherals

Flash drive- Flash drives are used to store any type of data file, or to move data from one computer to another.

OTG- An OTG or On The Go adapter (sometimes called an OTG cable, or OTG connector) allows you to connect a full sized USB flash drive or USB A cable to your phone or tablet through the Micro USB or USB-C charging port.

USB- The Universal Serial Bus (USB) is technology that allows a person to connect an electronic device to a computer. It is a fast serial bus.

RAM- Random-access memory (or simply RAM) is the memory or information storage in a computer that is used to store running programs and data for the programs. Data (information) in the RAM can be read and written quickly in any order.

ROM- ROM (Read Only Memory) is a memory chip whose main function is to store data. You can only read the data of ROM and cannot make any changes to it

EVALUATION:    1. What is the function of

1. flash drive b. OTG                c. USB
2. RAM e. ROM

CLASS ACTIVITY: Pupils in pairs, demonstrate the basic skills in ball games

CLASSWORK: As in evaluation

CONCLUSION: The teacher commends the pupils positively
