This is an introductory activity to understanding multiple perspectives in history. It has been adapted from an article about 15 world famous landmarks and their images zoomed out.
The goal is for students to understand what perspective is and how multiple perspectives are necessary when studying history.
(1) Students analyze two images of the same location and make inferences about each image.
(2) Then students use the two images to make broader inferences about the location.
(3) The teacher connects strategies used in this exercise to the analysis of historic documents in class.
