Additional activity 2
Ask the students to make a list of the ways to reduce different kinds of pollution. They can do research
on the Internet. They can either submit it as a project or as a chart for display in the school corridor.
Fossil fuels like coal

What are energy resources?
How do fuels release energy?
What are fossil fuels?
The harmful effects of burning fossil
Conservation of energy
Renewable energy resources
Energy from living things
Burning fossil fuels such as coal and oil give off these gases causing acid rain. Acid rain damages
buildings and plants. It also pollutes water, killing fish.
It gives the exact pH of the acid or alkali.
Looking at electric plugs
Open a wired plug carefully. Try to locate the fuse. How many wires are there?
Electric cables have the following colour coding:
Explain that three pin plugs are a simple, safe way o
Which of the following is not acidic?
B lemon juice
D fizzy drink

The pH scale is used to measure the

Iron and sulphur are the reactants.
Iron sulphide is the product.

Reactions with acids (1): metals: p 47
A metal corrodes whenever a chemical attacks its surface.
Less acidic than cola because it has a higher pH value.
ii) still mineral water
It contains dissolved carbon dioxide in it so it is slightly acidic.
They could be right as fizzy drinks are acidic in nature so they could

Ask students why we use switches in a circuit.
Stress the importance of being able to switch the current on and off when required. Discuss the different
types of switches used in circuits.
The flow of charge is called a current
Similar to a greenhouse, carbon dioxide is very good at keeping heat within the Earths
atmosphere. This is why it is called a greenhouse gas. It has been very useful in making the Earth
warm enough for human life to survive.
Living things together with the abiotic parts of their environment form an ecosystem.
A woodland ecosystem, where animals depend for food and shelter on the plants. The soil
provides water and minerals for plants to grow.

Resistance: p 61
too much current flowing through the bulb
The thin filament of the bulb gets hot, burns and melts when a large current flows through it.
Copper has the lowest resistance.

Problems to solve
Why must there be green plants in every community of living things?
How do humans disturb the balance of living things?
There were many deer in a forest. Hunters killed the lions, wolves and other predators of the deer.
No more gas is being produced.
The zinc granules have been used up completely.
Test the gas with a burning splint. If the gas burns with a blue flame accompanied by a popping
sound, the gas is hydrogen.
A solar cell produces a small amount of electricity when light shines on it.
They produce electricity for satellites.
A large number of solar cells are needed to produce useful energy.
A tidal barrage is a long barrier built across the m
