January Lesson Plans: Photography


Integrating our Bird unit with a study of Photography. We will use our understanding of photography to photograph birds in nature.

Framing the Picture

We made simple frames using construction paper, a ruler and scissors. We folded our paper horizontally, drew lines to make an outlined box, like this |_|. We then cut around the lines to create our frame.

Have the children look around at interesting objects in your house. Use the frame to "frame" the picture. Hold the frame closer to your eye for a zoomed in, or hold it farther away for a zoomed out approach. Then have the children use a digital camera to replicate their frame picture.
