OUR HISTORICAL MOMENT INQUIRY

Reflecting and Sharing

DAY 5 ACTIVITY

15-20 Minutes

  • Think about what your “Here and Now Snapshot” tells about you and your setting

  • Find a way to share your final work

THIS WEEK

We’re thinking about

the question: 

"How can I capture where I am in time and place?"

Your challenge this week is to create a “Here and Now Snapshot” to represent your setting in words and images.

Let's Get Started!

Someday, a long time from now, someone might look at the things you’ve created to wonder about you. 

Today, someone in another household, another city, or another country might be wondering about you right now!

Look at your finished “Here and Now Snapshot.”

Think about or discuss: 

  • Looking at my “Here and Now Snapshot,” what do I want viewers to thinkfeel, or wonder about me, my time, and my place?

  • What evidence did I include to make the viewer think or feel that?

Now that you’ve completed your “Here and Now Snapshot,” it’s time to share your work with others!

Here are some ideas for connecting with others:

  • Share with a family member and…

    • Help them to create their own

    • Ask them what your work makes them think, feel, or wonder (or use the “Sharing” handout to get a written response)

  • Ask an adult to help you share your work online with the #inquirEDtogether hashtag.

  • Hang your “Here and Now Snapshot” in the window

  • Keep your “Here and Now Snapshot” somewhere safe as an historical record that you and others can look back on later

All Finished?

Way to go! You've examined past historical images and have now created your own "Here and Now Snapshot."
