Finalizing the Work


15-20 Minutes

  • Finalize your “Here and Now Snapshot”

  • Your work from previous activities

  • Drawing and coloring materials (optional)


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!

Remember your work plan? That’s when you said: 

  • I will add…

  • I will try…

  • I will adjust…

Decide or discuss:


What will you do next to finalize your work?

Check out some “Here and Now Snapshots” by other students.

​​What changes did this artist make to their work?


How do these changes help you understand more about their historical setting?

First Draft


Today, you will work to finalize your “Here and Now Snapshot” to best represent your historical setting.

  1. Get out your first draft and any other materials from previous activities.

  2. Think about your work plan.

  3. Decide: Do you need a fresh piece of paper to start over? Or will you just edit your first draft to make your final draft?

  4. Get to work making your final draft!

Ready for Day 5?

On day 5, you will think about what your "Here and Now Snapshot" tells about you and your setting, and you'll find a way to share your final work.
