Communicating with Pictures and Precision
Royce, Christine Anne
Science and Children, v46 n5 p16-18 Jan 2009
From the earliest civilizations, humans have used drawings and pictures as a form of communication and to convey information--whether it was the seasons or location of good hunting grounds. In this month's column, simple alphabet picture books show students how pictures can be used to communicate information about a topic. In the first activity, students create their own picture books. In the second lesson, older students try to describe an image with precision and accuracy.
