Lesson X

  1. 1. LESSON x: 3.6 Understanding Bernoulli’s principle Pedagogy: Observation and classroom discussion with LCD presentation Time: 2 periods DEVELOPMENT OF LESSON Learning Activities Content T&L Strategies / Methods Introduction Refer to text book page 100. (Work sheet is given out to students.) (30 – 40 minutes) (i) When a fluid moves, there is a change in Carry out activities to gain its fluid pressure. • Carry out Activity 3.6A, 3.6B, 3.6C an idea that fluid velocity (ii) The higher the fluid velocity, the lower text book page 101. Teachers are affects fluid pressure. the fluid pressure. advised to split the students in groups Writing observations on to do the 3 activities. The 3 activities work sheet. are placed in 3 separate stations to encourage as many students as possible to participate actively in them. The groups rotate among stations. • Students fill in answers in their worksheet as they do the activities. Scientific Skills : Observing, inferring, predicting Development 1 Bernoulli’s principle states that the pressure • Teacher states Bernoulli’s principle.
