General

In this lesson, students will learn how to use information from both words and illustrations. They will first isolate what they learn from each separately and then combine the information. They will read several passages with pictures to practice this skill. At the end, students will be challenged to write about a picture and include outside details.

Standards

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.1.6

Learning objective

Students will be able to gain information from illustrations and words.

Introduction

Students will look at a picture of a dog getting reprimanded and answer the questions; "What do you learn from the picture? What do you learn from the words?" Discuss why it is important to look at both the illustrations and words.

Instruction

Explain that words and illustrations can work together to give both similar and different information. Students will read a passage about sharks and highlight information from the words, not the picture. They will then share information that they can learn from the picture but not from the words. They will also do a similar activity with a passage about dolphins.

Next, they will read a passage about elephants and use both the words and pictures to answer the questions. They will also practice with a passage about spiders. Students will then read passages about coral reefs and octopuses and determine whether the given statements came from the pictures or the text.

Quiz

Students will respond to 10 true/false and multiple-choice questions.

Closing

Students will recall:
- Where can you find information while reading?
- Why is it important to look at both the illustrations and words while reading?

Students will look at a picture of food and write about what they see, including details they wouldn't be able to learn from the picture.
