Part 1: Here is the Getting Inside the Picture assignment given in class for the current events assignment, "The Sinking of the Costa Concordia". You can do this question on kidblog.org/missiontomakeadifference/ if you prefere.
Look at the picture below and write 2 sentences to respond to the questions that relate to the senses (see your handout...)
Senses - What might you hear, smell, taste or touch? What colours, textures, sounds, movements do you experience?
Images - What details in the photograph create vivid pictures in your mind?
Feelings - What do you feel when you look at this image? What might the people in the photgraph be feeling?
Words - What powerful words describe the scene? What might you think, wonder, say if you were there?
