  1. 1. Grade 11 Term 2 Week 5-7
  2. 2.  This is a method to use when avoiding to send learners all alone down the bumpy, muddy path known as challenging text – a road booby trapped with difficult vocabulary words.  However, this does not mean giving learners a dozen of words to look up in the dictionary, rather use a fun and interesting manner to have them know the terms before the lesson – puzzle. Why this method?  Students lose interest – Arrives them at falling asleep, cause ruckus  Encourage deep learning  Free learners to explore new words and their meanings  Also helps with pronunciation  Help learners becomes comfortable with the language
  3. 3. Seasons end
  4. 4.  Climate refers to the average weather experienced over a long period. The earths Climate has changed many times in response to natural causes. Our climate – Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter  Climate change is often confused with global warming and weather, the following clarify their differences :
  5. 5. Climate change  Climate only changes over a longer period of time. Many animals and plants need one kind of climate to survive , for example – Dolphins and Palm trees need a hot climate , Polar Bears and spruce trees need a cold Climate. Weather  Weather is daily (day to day) and happens usually over a small period of time. For example – sun, rain, hail, snow, wind, cloud, fog (haze) and thunder and lightning.
  6. 6. Global warming  Knapp B (2000) simply defines it as a recent increase in the world’s temperature that is believed to be caused by the increase of certain gases in the atmosphere.
  7. 7. Natural causes  Volcanic eruptions  Ocean currents  Earth orbital changes  Solar variation Human causes  Greenhouse gases  Deforestation  Coal mining  Burning of fossil fuels  Industrial processes (CO2)  Agriculture  Sources of emission (transportation)
  8. 8. Answer true or false to the following:  Climate change is the same as global warming?  Climate change is caused by humans only?  Climate change is a recent phenomena?  Climate consist of 6 season?

Why this method?  Tell- provide learners with key information related to their learning (facts, concepts, rules, procedures)  Show- Demonstrating examples of the lesson  Do- After examples provision, give your learners opportunity to do what you have just taught them  Apply- Learners plan out how they will apply their knowledge in their own environments
  10. 10.  In groups of five, learners are expected to make a presentation of ten minutes, detailing the causes of climate changes and the benefits of recycling. (20 Marks)  Requirements  Each individual to present  Prove of the contributors  Use of equipment's if necessary  Presentation should be of a max of 3 minutes
