    two connotations of "approval"

    Dear teachers,

    Would you share with me your opinion concerning the following sentences?

    He gave his approval to our plan.

    I met approval in her look.

    Mankind had stamped its approval upon certain actions.

    approval = approbation, commendation

    We must submit our plans for approval.

    We received their approval to continue the research.

    I hope this plan has your approval.

    The plan was submitted for approval.

    He gave his approval to our plan.

    approval = sanction

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    A look doesn't seem concrete enough for me to use the verb meet.
