'Where Children Sleep': A Round-the-World Tour of Bedrooms

'Where Children Sleep': A Round-the-World Tour of Bedrooms | Children around the world | Scoop.it
From a teahouse for geishas-in-training to a hut in the Amazon, a book captures the diversity of kids'-room interior design
Susan Hanrahan's insight:

This is a very interesting visual journey looking at children's bedrooms (or where they sleep) around the world. It shows the extremes of lifestyles, from developing countries where children may sleep on a dirt floor to affluent homes where children have masses of toys and a large bedroom full of mod cons.

I think it would be a good conversation starter for students about families, where we live and how it can affects our place in this world and why. Students would have to look at the detail in the images to build up a picture of what that child's life might be and ask themselves possible questions such as Does this child go to school? If so, what might that school be like? What sort of job might his parents have? What country or part of the world might this be? etc. The images might also be a useful starting point for a piece of narrative writing.

RT @Viil: Photos of children around the world and their favorite toys -> Toy Stories by gabriele galimberti http://t.co/tGEacmZ9z5
Susan Hanrahan's insight:

A sequel to 'Childrens' Bedrooms Around the World', 'Toy Stories' take us on a journey looking at the lives of children from poor, middle class and affluent backgrounds and their toys.

This would be another great conversation starter for the class about different living conditions, sustainability, cultures, family and many other topics, from a subject that all children can relate to  - TOYS!

Susan Hanrahan's insight:

These images provide an insight into the living conditions and lives of children in London during the Industrial Revolution. This would be a great way to introduce the factors that led to the deportation of criminals and the consequent convict era in Australia.
