Investigating Pictures

This modelling the tools is incorporated into critical challenges at grades 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7, however, it can be adapted for use at all grade levels.



The detailed activities that follow help students learn to extract information from photographs. The focus is on using pictures to learn about community life, but the activities could be altered to suit other purposes.

They then use their findings to draw conclusions about the community.
