Set 7

  1. 1. Jennifer Heisler UF/Digital Photography Photos Set 7
  2. 2. PHOTO #1 This photo was chosen not only because I love the children’s expressions, but because I was able to edit the photo and make it black and white. When I purchased my camera, I did not realize that it did not include this option. I now know how to edit the photo using Picasa. This photo was also cropped and text was added. It was taken during a field trip to the Central Florida Zoo. The photo can be used during a lesson on editing photos. A fun project for the children would be to make a class memory book. Another lesson could be to have the students in the photo reflect on their trip to the zoo or to write a thank you letter to the people at the zoo. They could answer questions such as, what were you thinking when the photo was taken? What was the lesson about?
  3. 3. PHOTO #2 The burst option was used to get this series of photos. This was the first time I tried using the option and it just so happened that my nephew’s airplane landed on the roof. My dad had to go get it and so it was the perfect opportunity to snap some shots of an unusual occurrence. These photos could be used as an example to teach sequence. Students can practice re-telling what happens in a story or they can create a comic strip, sequencing chart, or story map. Since we instruct students to recognize key words in a sequencing test problem, they could practice using those key words in writing (first, last, next, finally, etc.).
  4. 4. PHOTO #3 This is my favorite photo of all and I was very fortunate to have taken a trip to the Everglades this semester. The weather was cold and dry, making it a great day for pictures. I believe these birds are cormorants. I love the way they are intertwined and all looking in the same direction. The photo can be used when giving a lesson on family, perhaps in the beginning of the school year when we are getting to know each other. There are many geography lessons that can be taught such as, locating the Everglades on a map and teaching students that the Everglades is a river. Of course the photo can be a tool when teaching about animals and habitat. Students can use the internet to research this type of bird and create a report and/or poster.
  5. 5. PHOTO #4 Another great photo taking excursion was to St. Pete Beach, where I came across this jellyfish. Prior to this class I would have never taken a photo of a jellyfish, but it occurred to me to try. The weather was bright and sunny as you can tell by the sparkling water. A foamy wave washed in just as I snapped the photo. It wasn’t until I downloaded the photo that I realized it was good. Similar to photo #3, this could be used in science when studying animals and habitats. It could also be a starter for a writing assignment in which students write about a time when they were hurt or scared by an animal.
  6. 6. PHOTO #5 This is just a “fun” photo in which my students were acting excited. The timing seems perfect. This was part of a lesson I created on making an emotions book. The students really were excited to take part in the lesson as you can tell! This also can be used an example when teaching students about drama. Before assigning parts in a play, they can look at photos where students are acting sad, angry, determined, etc. This gives them an opportunity to get ideas on how to act.
