Task1: Reflecting War

Previous Work

Some days before this task you should look for images related to the Syrian Civil War. You need to find an image for each of the following subjects:

Bombings, daily survival, fleeing people, refugee camps. You must write a brief reflection of the feelings this image brings out to you. Attach the location and time it was taken if possible. You must mention the source you got it from.

Classify the images in the Google Drive folders named:

  • Bombings
  • Daily survival
  • Fleeing people
  • Refugee camps

There must be kids in the pictures you choose.

Open the worksheet EscapingWar_activity1, print it at home and complete it before starting Task 1 at school.
