What do you mean by "viewing" and "representing"?
Viewing: Viewing is when children get information and are exposed to ideas that are presented visually, for example in photographs, videos or drawings. Viewing involves understanding visual images and connecting them to accompanying spoken or written words.
Representing: Representing is when children present information using a variety of media, such as charts, posters, diagrams, photographs, videos, drama and mime.
