What can you “infer” from this photo?

9 Sep


Today we talked about how when you “infer,” you make a logical guess based on evidence and reason. In other words, use knowledge you already have and use the images in the photo to back up your guess.  You all made incredible inferences and you used thoughtful reasoning. I loved the descriptive words you used and I encourage you to do the same here. So what is your task? Well, I would like you to observe this photo of a society, just as you did in class. **In the comment box, give an explanation of this society. Try to use words that others haven’t used yet in their comments.**

How do you give an explanation? Answering these questions will help guide you:

1. Use an adjective to describe the society. 2. Use an adjective to describe the natural environment. 3. Suggest what kind of technology would be used in this society. 4. What kind of jobs do you think the people who live here have? 5. And lastly, where do you think this society is?

Remember, there are no wrong answers. Be sure to have evidence to back up your observations.

    I think this is a poor society because even though they have houses they are small and primitive, and there no cars and paved roads. The surrounding environment is very close, lush, and dense. These people are probably farmers and don’t use modern technology. I think this place is tropical because of the foliage and its probably in high up mountains because of the low hanging mist. It could be in Peru.
