Picture Postcard

Categories:s1 and s2
Tom Barrett had used piclit to introduce a geography unit to his primary class about water. When looking at the results, I couldn't help but think this would be ideally suited to the work our s2 (12-13 yr olds) are starting on climatic regions. I let people work on their own or in pairs and students had the option of just using the picture as a descriptive canvas to fill with words or, for those who felt confident enough, to dabble in a bit of poetry. I have to say I was absolutely delighted with the results and the responses from the class. I am showcasing a few examples here, but in general, the work was exactly what I was looking for-thinking about landscapes to inform our future study.
