Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

The original version of this activity comes from the United States Census Bureau. (https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/sis/activities/history/telephone.html) The activity seems to have been created with second graders in mind, but also works well for lower grades (K/1) if you do this activity as a group and read each page aloud. Feel free to insert your own personal retro photo on slide 5 if you have one.
