After Integrated Art, we went on a scavenger hunt as an introduction to our new unit on Revolution using an app called Goose Chase. We broke into teams and traveled around the school looking for images of people, events, and symbols connected to political, social, and cultural movements and revolutions. Attached to each image was a QR code that we could scan to access websites and videos that would help us learn more about the image. After exploring that information, we had to decide which of the missions in the Goose Chase app the image was connected to. It was challenging, but also a lot of fun! Take a look at the slideshow below for more about the process and feel free to explore the images we used so you can learn more about them too!
To adapt this process to something more meaningful, we took time to create cause and effect posters about a significant aspect of our lives. Miss Gratton demonstrated the process by examining the causes of her decision to become a teacher and the effects that decision has on her life. Students did the same process with events/decisions from their own lives, and there were some very interesting results! Check them out below!
