After looking closely at the image above, think about these three questions:
- What is going on in this picture?
- What do you see that makes you say that?
- What more can you find?
Now leave a comment with what your think.
This exercise was inspired by the NY Times Educational Blog weekly feature " What's Going On In This Picture." http://learning.blogs.nytimes.com/ and one of their partner's Visual Thinking Strategies http://www.vtshome.org/
Once you've left a comment with your thoughts come back here to read more about the photograph that can be found in the New York Public Library collection. Two Nerdy History Girls
I often use this activity with the picture books I read to my students.
