    Do you have digital cameras in the classroom for the students to use? I could see this as being a wonderful opportunity for my students. What type of camera do you use? How do you use them?

    Thanks!

    I can't imagine having that in my budget, or getting them to handle them carefully enough. Maybe if some parents donated old ones that they weren't attached to...

    I have one old camera that we use for various assignments. They take pics of things with patterns on them around campus. We also do it for our unit on the 5 senses-they take the photos of things that we use one of the senses for and then we sort them out.

    The kids love it! There's a book about using them for science-they used photos of the different stages of growth of plants, etc. Lots of ways to incorporate it. :thumb:
