In partners, explore how reversible changes can be used to recycle materials.

In partners, explore how reversible changes can be used to recycle materials.

Include the following in your project:

  • Definition of reversible change.
  • 2 Common examples of reversible change (including diagrams)
  • Choose three different materials that can go through reversible change (e.g. paper, glass, plastic). Describe the recycling process for each one. Include relevant diagrams and pictures.
  • Create a description of 2 alternative ways to get drinking water (for example: desalination and sewage). Include relevant diagrams and pictures.
  • Bibliography

You may present your project as a Word Document, Poster, Brochure or Pamphlet

Due Friday 14th June

A good metaphor to use to structure a paragraph is a sandwich. 

A good metaphor to use to structure a paragraph is a sandwich.  Each paragraph has several main parts: The Topic Sentence, Supporting Details and a Concluding Sentence.

First slice of bread:

Topic sentence  This sentence is usually the main idea of the paragraph.  It gives your reader an idea of what your paragraph is about. Don’t go into detail, this is what the following sentences are for.

(Note: The main idea though isn’t always in the first sentence. Just as we can make our short story writing more interesting by mixing around the order of Beginning, Middle and End we can sometimes do this when we write a paragraph.)

The Filling:

Your supporting details  These sentences explain and expand on your topic. The filling can be made of several parts. These sentences can contain reasons, examples, facts, background knowledge or other supportive details.

Second slice of bread:

Your concluding sentence  This sentence wraps up your topic and sometimes repeats the main idea of the paragraph. Remind the reader of the topic. This final sentence can also lead to the next paragraph.

 

 

The following PREZI by Karen Henry goes into a lot more detail about the Parts of Paragraph sandwich. If the above information explains it well enough for you, fine. If you want more detail and information, enjoy! Don’t forget to take notes if it helps you.

For those students working on the Maths Wiki as a part of the pages you create I’d like you to include an online quiz. This will allow your visitors to test their knowledge and to see how successful the detail you have provided is. Below are several links to sites that list and describe sites and methods for creating online quizzes. Please do some exploration to find one that best suits your needs. Ideally I’d like one that can be embedded into your wiki page.
