D – Rain guage

A – It is used to measure relative humidity.
B – It is used to measure the speed of wind.
C – It is used to measure light intensity on land.
D – It is used to measure the amount of rainfall.
E – It is used to indicate for direction of wind.

In a tabular form
i | example | description | use of beak
F | Eagle | The beak is short and curve to enable tear prey| It is used to hold prey firmly
G |cock| It is short and little curve| It is used to peck food
H |Duck| It is long and flat | It enable the animal to sieve the food.


photosynthesis is defined as the process by which green plants manufacture their food making use of CO2 end water in the presence of sunlight.

It is used to split water into hydrogen ion and hydroxyl ions in photosynthesis

Blowing splint

It is a controlled experiment

An experiment to show that CO2 is absorbed while is giving out

(i) Avoidance of presence of sunlight
(ii) Avoidance of photosynthesis in terms of increment

From the green leaves


I. Glass tube – Wind pipe
II. Bell jar – Chest gravity
III. Y tube – Bronchi
IV. Balloons – Lungs
V. Rubber sheets Diaphram


Inhalation is the process of breathing in of air(oxygen) into the respiratory organs such as lungs or gills


Exhalation is the flow of the breath out of an organism

The head region of fish show the gills.

I – Nostril
II – Eye
III – Gill
IV – Scale
V – Fin

For gaseous exchange

O – Grasshopper
P – Spider

O – insecta
P – arachnida

In a tabular form:
Differences between O and P:
1. Possession of compound eyes.
2. Possession of six legs
3. Possession of three body segments.
1. Possession of simple eye.
2. Possession of eight legs.
3. Possession of two body segments.

Q – chlamydomona monoiea.
R -Euglena viridis
S – Amoeba proteus
T – Paramecium caudatus.

I – flagellum
II – pyrenoid
III – Gullet
IV – Meganucleus
V – Contractive vacuole
VI – Chloroplast

VI – It consist of chromosomes

The three similarities between Q and R are:
(i) possession of flagellum
(ii) possession of eye spot
(iii) possession of nucleus

The three difference between S and T are:
Under S:

(ii) Absence of cilia
(iii) Possession of pseudopia
Under T:
(i) T is slippery in shape.
(ii) Possession of cilia.
(iii) Absence of pseudoipia.
