Many activities/lessons could take place:

*Students could record the growth of certain plants over time with photography. Then, they would graph the growth of their chosen plants.

*We can use photography to compare plant growth using different experiments.

*Animal tracks can be photographed and identified in the classroom using books.

*Various birds can be photographed, identified, and compared.

*Trees can be photographed as well, especially during changing seasons for comparison.

*Insects can be photographed and studied.

*Basically, we can study nature without "disturbing" it because we can basically bring it inside with photos!!!

*Also, my students write the school newsletter and update our parent screen. Having these cameras would completely change the way that we do things!!
