5 Historical Detectives look at clues…… Situation……Imagine you live thousands of years into the future and have uncovered the following bag.This is USING EVIDENCE – ARTIFACTS.This is a lesson for 1.1 the introduction Geography and History . It is meant to be a warm up. It is a little long with the Stooges movie
6 This Is The First Object. What is it?Writing on the back says “ Happy Graduation , love Mom and DadAn IPOD
7 Can we start to make assumptions? So, What Do We Know So Far?What clues do we have ?Can we start to make assumptions?Who might the owner be?Good to start summarising what we have discovered early on. Introduces class to task early, good practice in using evidence. Can also point out that to little evidence will give false picture.
8 Here Is The Next Object. Why would you have these? What does this tell you about the owner?The child is a softball player Maybe a girl?
9 What Does This Object Tell Us? Do you know what it is?What does this tell us about the persons character?Remember we are only making ASSUMPTIONS!These may not be FACTS!The person belongs to a group or club. They study and read music and can presumably play an instrument. They may be dedicated and hardworking as music lessons of this sort are often done in your own time.
10 The Final Item in the Bag is.. What is this?IS it what you think it is?What does it tell us about the owner of the bag?Does the rest of the information help us to decide what it might be for?A hypodermic syringe. Is the owner a junkie or a diabetic? Could they be allergic to something? The clues tell us the person is sporty and musician as well. The balance would seem to suggest that the syringe is for medical purposes.
11 Time to decide..put all the clues together…. Be a historical detective.Time to get the class to piece together the jigsaw. Remember to now relate the activity and skills practiced to being a historian.Describe who the bag belongs to.
