This is a simple activity that spirals in complexity. The activity begins by simply asking students to identify and list what they see in the picture. Next it asks students to explain what is happening and then to create questions for discussions about the picture. This activity is a great way to introduce a topic, as a bell ringer or as a way to summarize a unit of study.
