I am presently developing a photography curriculum for eighth graders that
can last an entire year and is integrated with other subjects. However,
many of the lessons can be done by elementary students. Children of all
ages love this medium and have done some amazing work here in ALB,NM.
where all schools lack money for "Art". Peviously classes have shared one
camera between all students. The students are given alot of preparation in
how to compose a picture, different subject matter, how the camera works,
how to hold a camera steady,etc,etc... The students each took two pictures
and their results were published in a wonderful book called Through
Childrens Eyes, published by Art in the schools inc. Alb, NM.

Film and Developing is something that you can usually get donated and
even take the kids on a field trip to a Photo lab to see it being done.
Once you have your shots you can do lessons in Photocollage and Montage by
zeroxing all the photos and having the students each make an original
I have found so many ideas for learning through this medium and there
are several books available on teaching children photography. I hope this
helps. Cindy
