Day 1

Subject
Lesson

Morning Circle:
Students will cross a bridge made of
wooden plank
Presentation:
Effect of force in a solid objects
State Hookes Law and and use the
expression F =k x, where k is the spring
constant
Biography of Hooke
Recognise the significance of the
limit of
proportionality for an extension-load
graph

Activity:
To show the effect of force on solid
objects, the following demonstrations
will be done:

Make a cantilever with


plank ask student to stand
on that
Press sponge
Tear cheese
Investigate the effect of
stretching
elastic
band
catapults
by
different
amounts on the distance a
fired paper pellet travels.
Put weights on rubber band
and spring

(presentation)

Show
objects

different

deformed

Read biography of Robert Hooke and


encourage students to think about
applications of Hookes law


Show the samples collected
from construction site

Assignment:
What are the precautions that a
construction engineer has to taken
care ?
What are the naturally occurring
deformations around?
Write a note on biomimicry(inspiration from nature for
future construction)

Day 2
Circle: Students do Yoga
Recall Previously:
Compression and tension
Recognise that a force may
produce a change in size and
shape of a body
Presentation:
Introducing concepts of centre of mass
Couple, torque and moment of force
Activity:
Try to balance different things at
different conditions
Find center of mass of plain lamina
of sheet
Assignment:
Find center of mass of irregular shaped
lamina of sheet

Day 3
Circle:
Tug of war with different materials

Recall Previously:
Describe an experiment to determine
the position of the centre of mass of a
plane lamina
Presentation:
Describe the moment of a force as a
measure of its turning effect and give
everyday examples
Activity:
Demonstrate torque ,couple &
moments by
Rotating the painting table
Feel the torque with scale and
weight
Cloth stand and 2 carpet
Observing steering wheel, pedal
etc
Assignment:
Worksheet
Problem solving using the formula
F1d1 = F2d2
Day 4
Circle:
Game : Students try to balance on a
News paper
Recall Previously:
A push or pull is called Force
How to balance
Presentation:
Conditions for equilibrium
Activity: Demonstrate stability with
wooden stool, table with long legs and
short legs
Students try to touch their toes under
certain conditions

Show mesh building, double


decker bus

Assignment:
Apply that to vehicle safety during high
range trip
Day 5
Circle:
Jump on floor, then on cushion
Walk on normal floor and then on
gravel of different size
Recall previously:
Force ,momentum and impulse

Presentation:
Pressure(solid /liquid) and
atmospheric pressure
Applications of pressure in day
to day life
Activity: To identify p = F / A
Students try to burst balloon on nail
bed
Students stand on mud with stilettos &
on card board
To identify (For fluids) , p= hg
Observe ,
Form under Brick stack
Water spurts out differently
because of water pressure
Study hydraulic lift model
Assignment:
Compare the pressure exerted by
the tires of your car on the road with
the air pressure in the tires.
Identify the precaution while
constructing a dam
Model making: Hydraulic system
