- I cut up overhead transparencies to go in the mounts. Then everyone can
draw directly on the transparency.
- Paper works too (just don't try it in one of the really old projectors). The
image can be a little faint....you need a really dark classroom.
- Another thing that works well is to get outdated b/w film, rip it out of the
canisters, and 'paint' directly on it with a strong fixer and a strong
developer (buy the liquid and use it straight, or with very little dilution).
The regular room light creates a black latent image. Rubbing the developer
across the film will provide areas of varying shades, fixer makes the film
transparent, which projects as white. Color can be applied with marking pens
after it dries. The film can then be cut up, mounted and projected.

<< Hi --
Has anyone ever done anything interesting with having kids make their own
slides? I have a bunch of the slide frames and I have plastic and markers.
I remember in college we made some slides by enclosing different (very
small!) textured items between two sheets of plastic which looked pretty
neat when projected. I'm thinking I could do a lesson for maybe 4th/5th
graders related to the concept of scale. Any ideas?
Thanks!
