    Collect and maintain the seeds of fruits, flowers, trees ,etc. throughout the summer. In the monsoon you have

    to carry those seeds for dispersal and growth of plants in any place/ city/ village/ forest area/ barren land/

    both sides of railway tracks ( while in train).

    SOCIAL SCIENCE

    People all over the world have mobilized themselves to organize movements to restore democracy or to

    strengthen the existing democratic system. The lesson Popular Struggles and Movements tells us about

    such movements and the role of Pressure Groups, Political Parties and movements. You are required to do a

    project based on this. The project work will be assessed under subject enrichment activity and will be of of 5

    marks

  • Each student will do the project on the theme as per his/her roll no.

    ROLL NO THEME

    1-15 Nepal witnessed an extraordinary popular movement in April 2006.

    Bolivia is a poor country in Latin America where the

    people organized a popular struggle to strengthen democracy.

    From these two case studies you have to research on

    Why did popular movements start in both the countries and what were the main

    features of these popular movements ?

    Discuss the common features as well as dissimilarities of the popular struggle in

    Nepal and Bolivia. What conclusion can be drawn from the examples of Nepal

    and Bolivia about democracy?

    16-30 In a democracy different kinds of organization work behind any big struggle. One is

    direct participation in competitive politics; other is indirect in which people can get govt.

    to listen to their demands. You have to research on

    What are pressure groups or Interest Groups? Mention a few examples of the

    pressure groups. How are they different from Political Parties?

    Describe the forms of relationship between pressure groups and political parties.

    Give examples.

    With the help of recent examples state the differences between Sectional and

    Public Interest Group.

    31-47

    In Nepal and Bolivia movements were launched for different reasons. As in the case of

    Interest Group, the groups involved with movements also include a very wide variety.

    You have to research on

    What is a movement? With the help of examples analyze how Issue specific

    movement is different from Generic movement. How do they exert influence on

    politics? Is their influence healthy.

    PREPARATION AND SUBMISSION OF PROJECT REPORT

    1. Each student will prepare and submit her/his project report after the summer vacation. Following

    essentials are required to be fulfilled for its preparation and submission- the project should be made from

    eco-friendly products without incurring too much expenditure. The Project Report should be handwritten by

    the students themselves

    2. Marks will be awarded to original drawings, illustrations and creative use of materials.

    3. The project report will be presented in a neatly bound simple folder.

    4. The project report will be developed in the following sequence-

    Cover page showing project title, student information, school and year

    List of contents

    Acknowledgements and preface (acknowledging the institution, offices and libraries visited

    and person who have helped).

    5. All the photographs and sketches should be labeled and related to the theme.

    SESSION: 2017-18

    ASSIGNMENT 1- CHEMISTRY

    I. Do the following questions in your chemistry notebook.

    Q1. A compound X is used for drinking, has pH=7. Its acidified solution undergoes decomposition in

    presence of electricity to produce gases Y and Z. The volume of Y is double than Z, Y is highly

    combustible whereas Z is supporter of combustion. Identify X Y and Z and write the chemical reactions

    involved.

    Q2. Bhawna took a pale green substance A in a test tube and heated it on the flame of a burner. A brown

    colour residue B was formed along with evolution of two gases with burning smell of sulphur. Identify A and

    B. Write the chemical equation involved.

    Q3. A student took 2-3 g of a substance X in a glass beaker & poured water over it slowly. He observed

    bubbles along with hissing noise. The beaker becomes quite hot. Identify X. What type of reaction is it?

    Q4. A student has mixed the solution of Lead (II) nitrate and Potassium iodide.

    a. What was the colour of the precipitate formed? Can you name of the compound precipitated?

    b. Write the balanced chemical equation for the reaction.

    c. What type of reaction is it?

    Q5. A student burnt a metal A found in the form of ribbon. The ribbon burnt with a dazzling flame and a

    white powder B is formed which is basic in nature. Identify A and B. Write the balanced chemical equation.

    Q6. Asha has been collecting silver coins & copper coins. One day she observed a black coating on silver

    coins and green coating on copper coins. Which chemical phenomenon is responsible for these coatings?

    Write the chemical name for the Black and Green coatings?

    Q7. A few drops of Phenolphthalein indicator were added to an unknown solution A. It acquired pink colour.

    Now another unknown solution B was added to it drop by drop and the solution become colourless. Predict

    the nature of A and B.

    Q8. What is the difference between?

    (a) Combination & Decomposition reaction

    (b) Displacement & double displacement reaction

    Q9. Balance the following chemical equations:

    (i) Cu + HNO Cu(NO) + NO + HO

    (ii) Zn + HSO ZnSO + SO + HO

    Q10. Translate the following statement into balanced chemical equation:

    (i) Ferrous sulphate on heating gives sulphur dioxide, sulphur trioxide, ferric oxide and water.

    (ii) When dilute hydrochloric acid is added to magnesium carbonate, we get magnesium chloride and water

    with the evolution of carbon dioxide gas.

  • (iii) Nitric acid reacts with calcium hydroxide and forms calcium nitrate and water

    (iv) Sodium bicarbonate decomposes to give sodium carbonate, carbon dioxide and water

    (v) Sodium chloride reacts with water to give sodium hydroxide, hydrogen gas and chlorine molecule.

    (vi) Aluminium metal reacts with sulphuric acid to give Aluminium sulphate and Hydrogen gas.
