 Browse All Lesson Plans Lesson Plan Name Grades Digital Cameras and Symmetry 3 to 5 (0 stars, 3 ratings)Students use cameras to take pictures of things and then draw the rest of it to work on their symmetry. Symmetry in Nature 6 to 12 Symmetry and Fibonacci series in nature, explored with photography and photo manipulation. Symmetry in Nature and Congruent Shapes All Around 2 to 2 (0 stars, 1 ratings)All students will work in groups to investigate nature and their surroundings to find symmetry in nature and congruent shapes all around. Students will take photos using a digital camera and help create a multimedia presentation of their geometric findings. Students will share the final project with their peers. Technology and Visual Arts: Symmetry Portraits 1 to 6 (0 stars, 1 ratings)The students will understand the definition of symmetry and the beauty of symmetry by using graphic arts computer software to create the reflection of their face from the line of symmetry taken from a photograph. Technology Across the Curriculum K to 5 Students will be using digital cameras in Math, Language Arts, and Science. They will be producing symmetry pictures, a scrapbook, and learn how a camera and an eye are similar. "Geotown" Scrapbook 3 to 5 (0 stars, 2 ratings)Students will use digital cameras to take photos of architecture and nature that represent geometric concepts. The photos will be used to create a digital scrapbook for the fictional town of "Geotown". Graphing quadratic equations of the form f(x) = ax^2 + c 9 to 12 (0 stars, 1 ratings)In this lesson, we explore the effect of the constant C in the quadratic function f(x) = ax^2. Students will be able to observe that C shifts the quadratic function up/down. PRESCOTT, PHOTOGRAPH AND MODERN ART 9 to 12 (0 stars, 1 ratings)STUDENTS WILL LEARN ABOUT THE STYLES OF MODERN ART, THE WORKINGS OF A DIGITAL CAMERA AND THE TECHNIQUES AND SKILLS OF OIL PAINTING. THEY WILL ACHIEVE THIS BY BY USING A DIGITAL CAMERA TO CAPTURE A LOCAL LANDSCAPE BRINGING IT INTO THE CLASSROOM AND PAINT IT IN OILS. Seeing Math Everywhere We Look 9 to 9 (0 stars, 2 ratings)Through an exploration and photographic capture of parabolas throughout our environment. students will move from the “When am I ever going to use this?” to “I see it being used” stage in math class – specifically for quadratic equations. They will then research the related jobs necessary to "bring the parabola to life." Self Identity 9 to 12 (0 stars, 1 ratings)Students research into their experience, culture and life to create a self portrait learning facial proportions. Viewing a variety of artists with different interpretations of involving expression in their portraits. Self-Portrait 6 to 7 (0 stars, 1 ratings)For students in middle school, the self-portrait is timely, as it is during these years, between the ages of 11-14, that young people are immersed in “the self”-exploring identity, finding his or her place in the world, building perception of self in relation to others. In the lesson plan, students delve into these artistic qualities as they first explore famous artists’ portraits, which grounds them in a range of styles and art history, all of which students reflect on as they design their self-portraits, which they will create using Photoshop using both the standard desktop computer and the WACOM tablet to compare/contrast the impact of the different technologies on the design process and final product. Symmetrical Shapes K to K (0 stars, 1 ratings)Students will use computers to create symmetrical shapes.
