Capture the Memory With a Click!

My students need a digital camera with accessories to learn to take pictures and big money to learn to buy and sell the photos taken.

My Students

Smile! Cheese! Show those pearly whites! My students like to get their picture taken and now they need to practice being on the picture taking side of the camera.

My students attend a Title 1 school where nearly 100 percent of the school's population receive free or reduced lunch.

The students live in a community that is surrounded by higher socio-economic households and this often puts them at an economic disadvantage. The students are always excited on school portrait day but few have funds to purchase the photos. If the students had a Kodak digital camera to take their own pictures then they'd be able to shine like the rest of the community.

My Project

A Kodak digital camera and all the accessories will give my second grade students an opportunity to click and capture events that happen at school, whether in the classroom, on the playground, or at special programs. Currently, when disposable digital cameras are used in our class, all the students become "hams". They smile. They make their way to the front of the picture. They anxiously await to see the final picture. It will be beneficial for students to be on the picture taking side of the camera. This will give them the opportunity to see and decide exactly what will be in the photo. The pictures will be saved on a flashdrive and students will be able to add photos throughout the year.

My students need to have the opportunities that other students in surrounding communities are given.

With a digital camera, accessories, and big money to simulate buying and selling photographs, students will no longer be at a disadvantage when they get behind a camera. They will have the experience of operating a digital camera, producing photographs, and sharing the product they created.
