Last day for intro offer on Digital Photography Unit Study

Happy Saturday, all! Just wanted to remind you that today is the last
day of the introductory offer on the new Digital Photography Unit Study
<> on CD. I hope it

We are having a rainy, rainy weekend here in TN, but all of us that
depend on the rain for farming are very grateful. The trees are budding
out and the view across the mountainside is looking promising. Spring is
coming, and the robins have arrived. Hurray!

Post a birthday greeting to this soldier, friends!

Hey friends, a fellow homeschool mom posted on her blog that yesterday was her son-in-law's birthday. He's a young soldier, husband and father, serving the US in Iraq. If you've got time, post an uplifting birthday greeting to him here:
Happy Birthday, Cody!

Many thanks,
Amanda B.

New Digital Photography Unit Study is only $10.95

Available at a special introductory price through March 14th:

One of the things that is most amazing in children is their sense of wonder. When you capture their interest, you capture their sense of wonder and open the door to learning. This new unit study on digital photography helps to capture their wonder and investigate the world around them, while learning about science, history, geography, and art at the same time. Using this four-week unit study, they will learn about how a digital camera works and how to use one. They will also learn about some of the basic elements of good composition and other important aspects of taking a good picture.

Some of the things that are covered in this study include:

  • The science of light and lenses

  • The history of photography

  • Camera basics

  • Composing a photo

  • Famous photographers and their work

  • Applications of photography

  • Working with a digital photograph

From Aristotle to Ansel Adams, people from history have studied used light and the basics of photography in many ways. From the first simple rudimentary photographs to those coming back from outer space and the insides of a man, photography has opened up our world and beyond. Join us as we learn about photography and explore the world around you! From backyard scavenger hunts to journals of a typical day in your life, this academic adventure is both fun and fascinating!
