It's hard to remember that a) my students only have 7-years (max) under their belts, so the "past" doesn't mean a whole lot to them and b) floppy disks were SO long ago, I can't even begin to explain what a telegraph or beeper were! Haha.
To introduce the unit, I pulled up a picture from my past, present and (hopefully) future. I think it helped them understand the terms a little better. They have a project to do the same (bring in an object or picture from their past, present, and future), so I'm excited to see what they come up with.
Here's what I showed them:
|PAST. (L to R: Tim, Molly, Steph, Stacy)... Not sure why I thought I needed to pick Molly up for this one. She's almost as big as me!|
|PRESENT. (L to R: Tim, Steph, Stacy, Molly.) At my cousin's wedding in Dec 2012|
|FUTURE. (Which is why I said hopefully! Haha!)|
Tomorrow we're talking about changes in transportation. This oughta be fun!
