Inventors & their Inventions through Visual Texts [PDF]Download file
This activity series explores “Inventors and their Inventions” through an in-depth study of Primary Source visual texts from Britannica ImageQuest™.
Primary Source materials are an excellent way to engage learners in the study of past subjects, by giving them a very real sense of living in another time, place or perspective. The use of Primary Sources will help develop critical thinking and encourage learners to move from observing to questioning and making inferences about the materials being studied.
- Explain how images such as figures, diagrams, tables, maps and graphs contribute to understanding of factual information in texts.
- Understand how visual elements create meaning.
- Analyse the effects of different visual elements upon the viewer.
