2G students were asked to share what they “see, think and wonder” about the images below. You might recognise some of the photos as they are famous for showing two perspectives. Students used evidence from the picture to help support their perspective. For example, “You can see the man’s nose here. . . and this musical instrument is coming out of his mount, here. . “ It is important for students to remember to that everyone is entitled to their own perspective, but it if they want to others to have the same prospective. . then they have to use good evidence to persuade others. You can ask your child to explain his/her perspective before or after school, in the classroom.
How does perspective connect with our new UOI?
Over time people’s curiosity has led them to think beyond our planet
Students put on their thinking caps as they tried to imagine why people once believed the Earth was flat. Below 2G students looked at pictures to see what evidence/knowledge people might of gathered to think the Earth was flat. We wrote sentence to show what people in the past might have thought:
Desert picture: “The world is full of sand, because all I can see is hot sand.”
Coastline picture: The world has water and rocks, because there are rocks next to the water.”
After we looked at each perspective, we pretended that all of those people got together and shared their perspectives. We brainstormed a list of ideas that they might of all agreed on:
1. The Earth has sky
2. Every part is different
3. The world is flat, because we cannot see beyond the line (horizon line)
What to inquire into perspective, at home? Check out the questions below to see if you/your child want to try to answer them or you can think of your own questions to some different perspectives.
