Grade 6 Homework Board -Updated April 16th Biennale ProjectToday we began a whole school project, working towards our Learning Museum on May 24th. We worked with filmmaker Jessica Hallenbeck. She taught us some different photography techniques and introduced us to disposable cameras!! We also created a list of things we like to do and the places where we like to do these things. The students were given a disposable camera, which will be shared with another member of their class. They each have one week to take 4 photos of different locations that mean something to them (1 photo for each location). They must fill in information about each photo on their community investigator sheet (copy below).
