I'm looking for a digital camera that my students and I can use in our sixth grade Earth Science class. The camera would primarily be used to document classroom activities, both by me and students. My Earth Scientists will also use the camera to take pictures of different weather conditions outside our school and use the pictures as part of Power Point presentations. My school does not have many resources like this that are available on a day-to-day basis. I think giving my students an opportunity to actually see how they work and what they work on will enable them to better reflect on their own learning and the learning of their classmates. All of my 106 Earth Scientists will benefit from this tool, and future students will as well. Thank you for helping me bring not just more, but extremely useful technology into my classroom and the learning of my students.
