Students Take Great Shots in the Garden

on April 17, 2013

My fifth grade students in our afternoon class showed their creative talent as they took some pictures in our south facing garden in front of the first grade.  I was impressed with the photos last class, so I let a few more students show their talent at taking pictures.  Using photography is another way to encourage students to make good observations.  These pictues were a nice addition to the sketching the students have done the last few weeks.  I would like to include more student participation on my lower school science blog.

some of their success is due to:

being aware of lighting, some of the tulips seem to be shining as they reflect the sun

experimenting with perspective, trying to take a shot from ground level or taking a bird’s eye view

taking a small piece of the garden, focusing your attention on just one flower or plant instead of the whole garden

well done, 5D (especially Liv, Jack, Julia, and Dean)
