Machu Picchu See,Think,Wonder


Name: Connor B.


Expedition Name Text Title
Machu Picchu The Lost City


What do you SEE?

(Describe what you see using WOW words)

I see magnificent cliffs with vibrant colors. Great temple ruins.Dangerous paths on the ridge of the mountain.

What do you THINK?

(As you are experiencing VR tell your audience in detail what you are thinking using sequence words. First, Next, Last)

First I thought of how smart they were. I mean a whole civilization that no one knew about. That’s amazing. Secondly a thought of the majestic structures.

What do you WONDER?

(During your expedition what are you wondering about? What questions come to your mind?)

What did they do to just stack stones and make sturdy homes when now in the future we can’t do that? Did we get stupider?

Text Connections


What did you SEE in the Expedition that you can CONNECT to the text?

(Be sure to cite specific examples from the expedition and the text)

In the illustrations I saw great temples. And there were temples in the VR experience.

How do you THINK the Expedition enhanced your understanding of the text?

(Be sure to use evidence from the text to support your response)

The expedition made me realize how hard it must have been to get to the top of the mountain. The text talked about the difficulties but the expedition made me understand the hardships even more.

What do you still WONDER after experiencing the Expedition and reading the text?

(Write a reflection to extend your thinking i.e. What are you still curious about? What more do you want to know?)

How did the people of Machu Picchu survive and build so much in the era that they lived in?
