Print the activity pages before the lesson. You will need to use one of the pages for the introduction
(the image of a car). As an alternate option, you could use any detailed image of a car.
➤ I N T R O D U C T I O N
Invite children to gather around the picture of a car. Hold the image upside-down while you proceed to tell the children about all the parts of the car. Be very descriptive so that the exercise lasts a couple of minutes. “This is a car. These are the headlights. Cars have headlights so that the driver can see where they are going when it’s dark outside...etc.”
If children notice that the car is turned upside down, and they ask you to turn it right side up, politely tell them that you must continue with the lesson. Keep describing the parts of a car without turning the picture around.
After completing the activity, keep holing up the image (upside down) while you discuss the following questions:
1) Did you notice that something was wrong while I was talking about this car? (the picture was upside down!)
2) Did you want me to turn the picture around? Why? (discuss)
3) Was it easy to ignore? Or did it bother you and distract you? (discuss)
4) Do you think you would understand the picture better if it was facing the right way? (discuss)
