Keywords: technology, digital cameras, science
Subject(s): Earth Science
Grades 6 through 8
School: Victory Academy, Baton Rouge, LA
Planned By: Diana Toler
Original Author: Diana Toler, Baton Rouge
Objectives:
The student will be able to:
Recognize and apply science in contexts outside of science.
Construct scientific word problems using a digital camera.
Use technology as a means of creating science problems.


The teacher will review over the proper use of the digital camera with the students.
The teacher will explain to the students that they will be working in their cooperative learning groups for the project. The students will take a mini-field trip around the school and take pictures of earth science things in the environment. These pictures will be used to create Science word problems.

The students will begin their mini-field trip with the digital camera in hand. Each group member is to take 2-3 pictures.

When the mini-field trip is over, the students will return back to the classroom to begin their digital science word problems.

The students will then create creative and interesting word problems that will address key concepts taught within the 8th grade science curriculum.

Each group will create their digital word problems on construction paper.
