Questions for Drawing 1 & Photo 3

1. Match the photo of the house to the correct sketch in the drawing. Why do you think the house was built in stages?

2. What time of year was the photo taken? What does this indicate about the climate in this region?

3. What can you conclude about the lifestyle of Ben Moore and his family from studying the photo?

* The images on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high resolution version of Drawing 1 and Photo 3, but be aware that each will take about 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
