4 Sensei-tional Around the World Photo Wallpaper Discussion Starters
How to hook your students walking into Social Studies, History, Geography or Elementary classes? Bring the world to your classroom by using engaging photographic wallpapers displayed from your computer or laptop via the classroom data projector.
Start your 2016/17 school year with these free Around the World wallpapers:
* Sydney Opera House - Sydney, Australia (World Heritage Site)
* Arc de Triomphe - Paris, France (Famous French landmark)
* Shakespeare's Home - Stratford-upon-Avon, UK (Famous playwright)
* Orb Weaving Spider - Daintree Rainforest National Park, Kuranda, Australia (World Heritage Site)
You will hear students actively developing their intercultural understanding by asking numerous engaging questions: what is that picture about, how far is that from here, what are some design features etc. You can expand further observations that students may make with personal experiences, more reflective questions or have them describe 2-3 things they have learnt from the image to develop written literacy. You find the first ten minutes of the lesson will be taken up with this productive, on-task activity!
This Sensei-tional Classrooms sample product includes 4 free wallpapers in .png format that will easily display on one's desktop wallpaper. Photos have been taken by the owner of Sensei-tional Classrooms using her DSLR during various trips overseas. It is highly recommended to display one wallpaper every few days, so that a deeper engagement with the photos can be observed and shared with a wider audience.
