Visual Thinking Strategies Activity
I used Creative Commons to find these images of the different California missions. I specifically found photos featuring the main buildings so that students can compare the images. Students will use their prior knowledge of the missions and descriptive language to describe each of them. They will practice their writing skills and creativity when answering the final question.
1.) Describe the similarities between the first three images
2.) Describe the differences between the first three images
3.) What do you think is happening in the last image? Write a short story about it! (Pargaraph length)
