Using Pinterest Pictures in the Classroom

Sometimes I would take a picture I'd found on Tumblr or Pinterest, and flash it up on the screen for the children to see.

We'd discuss what they saw in the picture, with me guiding the questions as far into higher order thinking skills as possible.
(Ex: Why would the woman wear a veil and not a hat?
Why is she using a camel to carry her things and not a car?)

I would then have the children write one or two sentences describing what they see in the picture.
