A lesson idea that I’m taking from the example activities with a twist is looking at technologies through history.
I found this free downloadable worksheet:
The basic premise is students cut and arrange the pictures of the different technologies in the order they believe they were invented. Then in pairs, they can use computers if accessible to find the year/time period the technology is from.
Alternatively, the teacher can tell the students the answers.
Then with the knowledge the students have gathered, they can rearrange their images and create their own posters.
