Photographs & Postcards

Ask students to bring in photographs and postcards of far-off or culturally important places they've visited. Vacation photos of the Colosseum go a long way towards helping students understand the Roman Empire, postcards of the beach can be included in an ecology unit, and pictures of old log cabins can help your class understand the basics of Colonial life in America. Once students see photographs, they can imagine themselves there! If you have access to a scanner, upload the pictures to your computer to create a slide show or PowerPoint.
