Learning Objectives

  • 1. Students work in partners to recreate a moment of time from Silver Buttons. 2. Students use MEE to select appropriate materials for their spread. 3. Students present a clear plan and finished product to the class detailing their work explicitly.

Guiding Ideas

  1. Point of View: What is the illustration telling the reader in that particular spread?
  2. If this is happening in one small neighbourhood in 1 minute, reflect of what could be happening all over the world.
  3. Build: Which tools are going to best represent your spread? How will you manipulate them in your build?
  4. Reflect on these questions in your presentation.

Student Activities

  1. Students are asked to collaborate with their partner to decide which spread they will build.
  2. Students plan and draw their spread in a work book first.
  3. Students open MEE and examine the tools and materials available and make decisions about what they will use in their build.
  4. Students build their illustration spread.
  5. On completion, students present their creation (any challenges, interesting finding etc.) to the rest of the class.
  6. Students use the camera tool to screenshot their build and save their world.

 

Performance Expectations

  • Students should be active participants in all learning activities.
  • Students will be able to describe their built setting in detail.
  • Assess how point of view shapes the content and the style of a text.
  • Make strategic use of MEE to express information and enhance understanding of presentations.
