Product Description
Imagine you lived n the 1400s and you were about to get on a ship and travel for a while. What would you bring? What would you bring if you were going on that same trip today? This activity makes one think about those questions… packing for a trip then and now.
This activity includes picture cards and sorting group title cards (then and now). As a large group, pose the above questions and then sort the picture cards. Then distribute the individual sorting pictures and sorting sheet. I have the kids make little suitcases out of construction paper. I included some suitcase handles that you can copy onto brown paper. In the event you don’t want to do suitcases, I made a second then and now sheet. As for the pictures, I like to give colored ones to the students. I would print the colored version for each one of them. I realize that is not what everyone would do so I also included a gray scaled sheet that you can copy.
