INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES

PERIOD 1: Heat and temperature

 PRESENTATION TEACHER’S ACTIVITY PUPIL’S ACTIVITY STEP 1INTRODUCTION The teacher revises the previous lesson on energy Pupils pay attention STEP 2EXPLANATION She explain the differences between heat and temperatureHeat is the total energy of the motion of the molecules of a substance, whereas temperature refers to the measure of the average energy of the motions of the molecules in the substance.Differences1.   Heat is a form of energy that can transfer from a hot body to a cold body. Temperature is the degree of hotness and coldness of a body.2.   Heat is the total kinetic energy and potential energy obtained by molecules in an object. Temperature is the average K.E of molecules in a substance. Pupils pay attention and participates STEP 3DEMONSTRATION She enumerates the types of thermometerClinical thermometer /medical thermometer.Laboratory thermometer.Digital thermometer.Infrared ear thermometer.Mercury thermometer.Alcohol in glass thermometer.Constant pressure gas thermometer.Constant volume thermometer. She states the unit and symbols of temperatureThe kelvin (K) is the base unit for temperature. Kelvin is called the absolute temperature scale because it does not use degrees. 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

 PRESENTATION TEACHEIR’S ACTIVITY PUPIL’S ACTIVITY STEP 1INTRODUCTION The teacher revisits the previous lesson on physical fitness Pupils pay attention STEP 2EXPLANATION She further explains what physical fitness is- Physical fitness is the ability of the body to function both effectively and efficiently when performing physical activity without becoming exhausted too quickly. She then demonstrates the components of physical fitness using various activities1. Agility: It is defined as the ability to move with speed and ease. Activities that build agility are lateral running, jump box drills etc2. Endurance: It is the ability to put up with strain, suffering, or hardship. Activities that build endurance are long hike, walking briskly, biking, jumping rope etc3. Strength: It is how strong one is. Activities that build strength are weight lifting, cycling, push-ups, sit ups etc4. Flexibility: It is the ability to move the joints freely. Activities that build flexibility are yoga, pilates, stretching etc Pupils pay attention and participates STEP 3DEMONSTRATION She describes how to send, receive and reply an e-mailTo send an email:1.   In the left menu pane, click the Compose button.2.   The compose window will appear in the lower-right corner of the page.3.   You'll need to add one or more recipients to the To: field. ...4.   Type a subject for the message.5.   In the body field, type your message. When you're done, click Send.To reply an email:1.   Open the your email2.   Select the email you want to respond to3.   Click the reply arrow4.   Enter your reply5.   Click send 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
