Learning Activities in steps:

Step 1 – Teacher reviews previous lesson, and states learning objectives – including study questions.

Step 2 –. Class discussion on building materials

As the name implies, building materials are the materials used in constructing a building. Some building materials are wood, gravel, sand, metal, cement, glass, leaves and ceramics.
Step 3 – The teacher leads the students in a class discussion on examples of building materials

1.                  Wood: this is used for roofing and making doors along with windows.  Wood is also used for making furniture, wooden floors and for making cases for concretes.
2.                  Gravel: these are small stones which, when mixed with cement and sand plus water becomes concrete.
3.                  Sand: this is a substance that consists of very small grains of rock. It is mixed with cement and water to mould blocks and make mortar for rendering.
4.                  Metal: this is used for reinforcing foundations and lintels along with pillars and beams. Metals can also be used for making roofs, doors,
Step 4 – Teacher gives the students class exercises.
Step 5 – Teacher summarizes and evaluates lesson.

Learning Activities in steps:

Step 1 – Teacher reviews previous lesson, and states learning objectives – including study questions.

Step 2 –. More class discussion on uses of various building materials

Woodwork Marking Out tools:
After taking measurements, the next step is to mark out the beginning and the end of the measured length. Examples of marking out tools are as follows:
1.                  Cement: this is a product of limestone and clay. It sets hard when mixed with water. Cement is a binding agent for block moulding, concrete, plastering and mortar and for block laying.
2.                  Glass: this is used for making doors, windows and walls.
3.                  Leaves: these are used for thatched roofs and walls.
