This slideshow was created for use in a visual literacy library lesson that supports 6th grade world history curriculum by expanding on the unit The Stone Age and Early Cultures. Additional text was included on each side to represent both what I said as the instructor during this lesson, and some of the student responses. The images included in the presentation are used either under CC License or are screen captures of author work that serves as an educational example to students. Feel free to reuse any part of this presentation, or even the whole thing,--as long as you share alike!

  • Hello.My name is Mrs. Gukeisen—you can call me Mrs. G.I came to do a project with you today that you will create based on the storyboards you have already done showing the six greatest achievements of early humans.The people you’ve been studying about did not have a written language. They had to communicate through other means. If they wanted to record something for history, they had to use pictures to convey their message. Do you think this is an authentic cave panting?Nope!
  • You are going to use an online drawing tool today to make a Modern Day Cave Painting that expresses what you’ve been learning in this class. I suspect yours will be more impressive than mine!  Before we get to work, let’s quickly look at some pictures and how they send us messages, so you can consider what to include in your own visual message.
  • Do you think we still use pictures to communicate?We absolutely do!Does anyone know who this is?That’s right, the Little Ceasars guy…”pizza pizza!”What message is this picture sending? That eating pizza is good/to buy pizza/to eat pizzaIs this picture trying to persuade you to do something? Buy and eat pizza!How does this picture want you to feel about buying pizza? Great/Happy/Satisfied/Relaxed/…What about other pictures we see?
  • What message do you think this picture could be sending?There are no right or wrong answers to these, so please just share one thing you are thinking about the message this picture is sending, and whether it is trying to persuade you to do something or to feel a certain way.
  • What do you think this picture is attempting to persuade you to do?Drink milk?Laugh over spilt milk?
  • How do you think the creator of this picture wants you to feel?What if he had put a picture of a boy playing in the water instead of puling a boat? Would it change how you feel?ORWhat is one thing you would change about this picture so that it conveyed a different emotion?
  • What emotion do you think the person who shared this picture is trying to convey?
  • Does seeing the rest of the picture and the caption change your idea about what emotional message the picture is sending?
  • Think about the message you are going to send to day when we make our Modern Day Cave Painting.Will you focus on meaning, persuading or feelings? All three?
  • Think about which of these storyboard pictures you created that you think represents early man’s most important achievement.
  • We are going to use a drawing program today
