* That’s right! Now, who among you can give example of hardwood and softwood lumbers?
* Our lesson last meeting was all about the classification of lumber. The hardwood and softwood lumber.
(Allan stand and answer)
* Hardwood lumber came from deciduous or broad-leaved trees. In general, hardwood species are typically hard and the trees are slow growing. While the softwood lumber are taken from the coniferous and fast growing trees.
* Hardwood lumbers have wider variety of colors and textures. While the softwood lumbers are lightweight and have light colors.
(The students take turn to give example)
* I have here a situational problem wherein we need to solve and give sensible advice or opinion.
* After we read the situational problem, you are given 1 to 2 minutes to discuss with your seatmate the situation and find a sensible advice or opinion.
* Is that clear, class?
(The teacher posted the situational problem on the board or on the DLP projector (Power point Presentation; Slide 1)
* Who will read for the class? Yes, Rosa.
* You may start now your discussion with your seatmate
(After 1or 2 minutes, the teacher solicited responses to the students)
(The students listen attentively to the teacher)

His neighbor advised him to cut down all his planted tress for lumber so that he can use it. The farmer is confused and he doesn’t know what to do. How does he start his plan? He needs an advice.
* Now, let us listen to your advice.
* Based on your shared opinion, the best way the farmer will do is to make first a plan before he started to build a small house made of wood. * Why he needs to do this?
* What are other reasons besides that?
Value Integration (Slide 2)
* Yes, we need to plan and think everything we do before we make an action.
* We need also to conserve especially the natural resources like trees because we have waited many years for them to grow and then we cut...
