Objectives: Students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the skill 'compare and contrast'. They will:
According to readiness level:
Select a recent change that is of high interest to the majority of students. Share the changes that occurred as a whole group. Record the changes so students can feel connected to the content and refer back to the information during the lesson.
Students will use their pictures to produce a bulleted list of information about the changes happening over time. They will present this information back to the class orally, using their list for a visual aide.
Students will illustrate and support what they think their 'spot' will look like in 20 years. They must produce a minimum of 3 reasons why, a picture and caption. High readiness level students should add this element to their 2 paragraph essay, demonstrating change over time and predictions about the future.
