Grade 5

Looking Through the Lenses – from UNICEF

This activity comes with three parts. The first introduces the concepts of how perceptions can be distorted, and how stereotypes work. The second explores how people can form inaccurate perceptions of the world around them, particularly if they rely entirely on the mass media for information. And the third looks at how personal experiences affect the way people perceive the world, and the effects of perceptions on self-image and images of others.

Specific outcomes may be too ‘event-focused’ for this activity. However there are skills related to it and it can be used as an important support activity for many grade 5 lessons.
