Digital Cameras

Digital Cameras are becoming more and more popular.  In the classroom they can be a motivating resource for students and teachers.  Today's students have been exposed to digital and video images all of their lives.  Activities and projects with digital images can be used in all curricular areas.  Teachers can use them to document student work, provide writing prompts, record field trips, and spice up instruction.  Students can use the cameras to illustrate steps in a procedure, create class books, illustrate math and science concepts, and capture class activities for newsletters, web pages, and displays for parents.  Digital photography activities aren't about taking pictures, but using the camera as a tool to explore and understand other subjects.
