Mini IWB Lesson on The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan for Stage 2 (Year 4)

Activity: This activity allows students to interactively develop an understanding of visual literacy in showing how pictures portray emotions to the reader.

Aim: To consider how visual features depict an emotional aspect of the character.

Resources:

  • The Lost Thing by Shaun Tan (picture book)
  • The Lost Thing (short film – if available)
  • IWB Notebook File

Sequence:

  • After reading the picture book or watching the short film (or both), pose the question – ‘How do pictures create/convey feelings?’. Ask students to think/pair/share and discuss their thoughts on this. Get students to share their thoughts and then get students to come up to the IWB to match words/phrases to pictures from the book/film and explain why they think that picture conveys that feeling.
  • Extend the activity to include discussion on visual angles, colour and image composition using the next few slides where students construct modelled sentences and discuss their responses with the class as they come to the IWB.
  • This activity can be further extended by adding additional IWB slides on other visual literacy techniques that are used to convey feelings in images.

  1. The key elements of successful IWB integration in the classroom as highlighted by Higgins, Beauchamp and Miller (2007), are evident in this mini lesson as follows:

    – Using the IWB to support traditional didactic teaching. This sequence is teaching traditional literacy using an interactive digital format.
    – Stimulation of interactivity through questioning and involvement of pupils. The activity facilitates student interaction and discussion throughout each stage of the lesson.
    – Enhancement of the interactive experience through using the technology to stimulate and develop interactive learning. Use of the above IWB slides encourages all students to involve themselves physically and engage in the learning experience. The activities can be adapted to suit all levels of achievement at the click of a few buttons if done prior to the lesson.
