What's going on in this picture? Thinking skills



Look closely at the photograph that has been stripped of its caption.
What’s going on in this picture?

What do you see in this picture? (not everything is obvious)
I can see...      I notice.....      I think that......

Predict what might have happened before or after.
Before this moment....       After this...        I predict that....

Can you connect yourself or something else to this picture?
I relate to this because....       It reminds me of...        I remember when.....
            
What else do you think about when you see this picture?
It makes me think....         I wonder.....

Ask a question.  
I wonder…       I’d like to find out…       what, when, why, how, where, who?

What emotions do you see in this picture?
I can see....         I get the feel that.....   

How does this picture make you feel?

It makes me feel....          If I was there I would feel.....

  18. It might be in an African country because of the people in the background. They are also quite far away from the creature, maybe they don't know what it is.

  19. There's many people in the background. It looks like its in the shallow end of a lake or river, the tree like vines in the background makes it look like the photo was taken near a jungle.

  20. It could just be a strangely shaped hill or rock, as it seems to stretch all the way towards the people at the end of the shot.

    ReplyDelete
