Given below is a period wise detailed explanation on how activities and essential questions will be integrated to explain the concept in the class.

How will you integrate the above selected/ defined questions to explain the concept/s that I have chosen for this chapter? What real life examples will I use to explain the above selected essential questions? For example: We learn about socket& ball joint concept in types of joints, how has human mind been inspired to use it in daily life to make things better for human ease. We have been able to use this concept in simple things like toys- mini transformers coming as surprise toys cars rear-view mirror attached to the windshield and complex things like machines-car joints where the wheel connect to that frame of the cars

Step 1: Show the globe in class and ask students to give a estimate or recall from previous knowledge how much percentage of the globe is covered with water? And what percentage left is land?

Step 2: Once students have answered this then ask, do you think all the land is flat like a plain or is uneven? followed with this ask them if you can name those natural features which are uneven?

Step 3: Once they have answered this then tell them the various natural features are called land forms/ relied features- mountains plateaus plains deserts and rivers.

Step 4: We begin explaining the relief features with  mountains. Now again ask the students to open the Physical map of India and locate Himalayas in the map. Once they have located will ask them how and what kind of colors have been used in the map to mark the mountains. After this introduce the features of mountains to the class. Tell them the names of Mountain ranges and how are they different from other ranges in the world. Explain the difference between Hills and Mountains

Step 5: Introduce plateau and its definition and ask students to locate the deccan Plateau in the Physical map of India and ask students to identify the rivers that are flowing via that region.  Give them examples of other plateaus in the world and various other features that are formed with river traversing through it by explaining the features of Plateau

Step 6: Introduce Plain and explain their formation. Now again ask students to locate them in the physical map of India and ask them the color in which they have been marked and rivers that are flowing in the flood plains of North.

Step 7: Introduce Desert and tell the features of desert and introduce the name of lasrgest, hottest and coldest desert in the world. The various features that are common to desert

Step 8: Introduce Rivers and its course and features it forms on its way till it drains in the sea. Show it by drawing it on the balckboard so that students understand how a river changing course at various levels.

Assignment: Break students in group and Ask them to create a model of various physical features. and explain it in class.

End of the class : Make students work on the questions at the back of the session and give a few question created using the myEplan
