Grade 7 Literacy, Geography

Teachers will use the images to introduce an investigation into the impact of humans on the physical environment. Two effective posters published by Pearson offer an anchor for discussion around the topics human impact, climate change and bias. The images also allow for emergent bilingual students to engage in the thinking. The first image is of a man washing his car on top of the ocean with the text: “When you’re washing your car in the driveway, remember you’re not just washing your car in the driveway.” The second image is of the Canadian flag with the maple leaf falling off with the text: “Every time a piece of nature disappears, a part of us goes with it.”
