Standing or vertical line
Positions of straight lines
- Draw a right angled triangle on the Black board or Manila paper and show it to the Learners.
- Explain to the Learners the three positions of a straight line on the triangle. The three positions are: vertical, horizontal and diagonal line.
- Let Learners draw different types of lines that they have learnt in groups and let them display their work.
- A shape is an area enclosed by lines.
Types of Shapes
- Star shape
- Let Learners name the shapes and identify lines making the shapes in groups
Drawing Regular Shapes
- Guide the Learners to draw the shapes by use of free hand.
Drawing a Square
- Draw upper and lower horizontal straight lines first and they should be equal.
- Join the two horizontal lines by drawing vertical lines at both ends.
- Tell the Learners that the four lines should be equal.
- Draw a triangle- by emphasizing the diagonal vertical and horizontal positions of a straight line.
- Draw a circle by joining the curve line facing up and curve line facing down.
- Let Learners do an extended activity of drawing a star
Drawing Irregular Shapes
- Irregular shapes are shapes that do not have dimensions (length, width, height)E.g stones,trees,hills.
Show Learners picture of irregular shapes.
- Texture is the roughness or smoothness of a surface.
- It is also defined as the feel of a surface whether rough or smooth.
- Guide Learners to look at pictures of texture in the pupils books
- Introduce the lesson by having Learners brush their palms together and ask them how it feels when touching palm.
- Bring something with rough texture such as a khaki bag or the back of a tree and ask Learners to touch. Ask them how they feel.
- Observe the Learners reactions when they touch smooth and rough surfaces
- Teach that the surface of the palm is smooth texture and the surface of the khakibag or back of a tree is rough texture.
- Let Learners touch various surfaces and ask them which texture is this?
- Creating smooth and rough textures in the physical and ICT environments
- Learners can create textures by rubbing over varied surfaces on pieces of pieces of paper using crayons,pencils or charcoal sticks.
- To create smooth textures Learners should put papers over smooth surfaces then rub
- To create rough textures Learners to put papers over rough surfaces then rub.
- Let Learners do activities of creating more textures on their own.
