Picture Science: Using Digital Photography to Teach Young Children
Neumann-Hinds, Carla
Redleaf Press
Young children love to investigate the natural world, and they love to take photographs. "Picture Science" goes beyond just documenting class projects. The book shows how to use digital photography to make each step in the scientific process--from posing a question, to gathering data, to showing findings--concrete and fun for children. Keyed throughout to early learning standards, the book provides examples that will stimulate designing lesson plans. Technical advice and tips for buying a camera for a center or family child care business are also included. Following Acknowledgments and an Introduction, the book includes: (1) Photography for Collecting and Analyzing Data; (2) Photography for Demonstrating Conclusions; (3) Photography for Making the Process of Inquiry Visible; and (4) Photography for Creating Documentation. The book concludes with an appendix of Technical Questions and Answers.
