Pupils pay attention and participates STEP 3DEMONSTRATION She then enumerates the metric unit of volume10millilitre = 1centilitre10centilitre = 1 decilitre10 decilitre = 1 litre1000cm3       = 1 litre Pupils pay attention and participate STEP 4NOTE TAKING The teacher writes a short note on the board The pupils copy the note in their books

NOTE

Materials used in measuring liquids

• Burets.

• Pipettes.

Metric unit of volume

10millilitre = 1centilitre

10centilitre = 1 decilitre

10 decilitre = 1 litre

1000cm3       = 1 litre

EVALUATION:    1. List three materials used in measuring liquids

1. Outline the metric units of volume

CLASS ACIVITY: pupils in small groups, measure liquids accurately in turns by using measuring cylinders, graduated jars, and cups and record their measurement accurately

CLASSWORK: As in evaluation

CONCLUSION: The teacher commends the pupils positively

STEP 3

DEMONSTRATION

The teacher explains the meaning of coding and its importance

Coding is the process of transforming ideas, solutions, and instructions into the language that the computer can understand – that is, binary-machine code. Coding is how humans are able to talk with computers.

Importance of coding

1. Coding develops logical thinking

2. Coding improves problem solving skills

3. Coding fosters creativity

4. Coding allows high income potential

### 5. Coding helps you work smartly and efficiently

6. It helps to develop resilience

7. One becomes an expert at debugging

8. It becomes easy to communicate with code

Pupils pay attention and participate
