Digital Photography- Kindergarten

The Kindergartners have practiced their mouse skills, listened and interacted with a storybook, learned to draw on the computer,  recorded their voices, and will now become photographers.  Taken from a friend, Kevin Jarrett, this lesson is always a huge hit.

Armed with two point and shoot digital cameras, I head down to the Kindergarten classes this week.  I start by teaching the students about the wrist strap (they are 5 and 6 years old) and move onto the shutter, and view screen, and who a photographer is.

Students work in groups to take pictures of objects they are given.   The child behind the camera must direct the other group members where to stand so he/she can see every group member as well as the object required.  Classroom teachers and I work with the groups and the students have loads of fun.
