The students were presented with a photograph. They were encouraged to share what they see, think, know or wonder about the photo.
We documented the key points from the discussion and began to think about the different concepts the students were noticing. Some recurring concepts were to do with place, shape, design, structures, safety and purpose.
Next, the students were invited to explore their environment to see if they can find anything that made them think about the different KEY words that came up through our discussion. They decided to create questions to help them think/talk about the key words.
As the students presented their images to each other, we looked for similarities and differences that came up.
We wondered what a structure was. What types of structures do we already know about?
