How to Read a Photograph (Grades 3-5) – Using Primary Sources
Students will examine a variety of historic photographs of Tulsa and be guided through a protocol of:
- Identifying people, objects, and activities.
- Interpreting what is happening in the photograph.
- Imagining why the photograph was taken.
Students will then be given the opportunity to apply the protocol. Students may work in pairs of small groups to develop a written or oral narrative based on a selected photograph. This lesson is available for classroom or in “mini” format combined with a museum tour.
Site-based presentations are available Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays and are subject to availability.
