Homework Communion compass thinking routine

Grade 3/4 I want you to communicate your thinking about the Last Supper by using a compass points thinking routine.

W – what are your wonderings  about the        Last Supper / this painting?


N – what I now know / what do you need to know about communion / the Last Supper / this picture?


E – what excites you about Communion /the Last Supper / this picture?


S – stance ; what is your stance (opinion) about this picture?

I look forward to seeing you being thinkers and communicators of your thinking Grade 3/4 🙂
