Looking Back: A study of life 100 years ago

Students moved around the display area noting aspects of life of the time – the environment, dress, communication, travel, housing, tools and implements.

Household items from 1900

The students wrote down key words on cards and then participated in a bundling activity, classifying their information into sub topics (branches of Concept Map) – transport, school, clothing, occupations etc.

As a whole class, the students created a concept map on the floor, linking the information in ways that made sense to them. After the activity the concept map was displayed on the wall for future reference.
