Amanda's new Digital Photography Unit Study
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
Composing a photo
Famous photographers and their work
Applications of photography
Working with a digital photograph

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!
