READ THROUGH THE ENTIRE ACTIVITY DIRECTIONS BEFORE YOU START

Directions/Activity:

1. Before going outside as a team, decide what you want to show others about
your schoolyard. You can select such as: what is nice about it, what is bad
about it, or show areas that could be improved. Make a list of at least three
(3) places where you will take pictures to show the message you want to portray.

PICTURE STORY



2. Since pictures are expensive you have to be selective in what you take and
how many you take. There are different kinds of cameras you can use and
different types of film. The quickest way to do this is to use an instant type
camera like a Polaroid (Kodak also has a similar camera) that develops the
picture immediately. Other cameras can be used that have roll film, 8, 12, or
20 exposure, color or black and white, and either prints or slides depending
upon the film used. But for these you have to wait to get the Pictures
developed. Then you are ready and know how to use the camera, have each member
of the team take one or several pictures of the places you selected. Some quick
hints:

a. Hold the camera steady when taking a picture

b. Get as close to the picture subject as you can and still get all you want to
show on the picture.

c. Have the sun behind you or to the side; never take pictures into the sun.

3. Once you have the pictures taken, write a description for each. This is
called a narrative to tell your story about each place you selected and the
pictures you took. Your story (narrative) should tell why you choose to show
what you did, what's good, bad, or can be improved, and what it means to your
schoolyard. You have to tell your story completely, but in as few words as
possible. And you can mount your pictures on cardboard, and print out your
narrative next to each picture for a display. Try to come up with a good title
for your presentation. (If your pictures are in slides, you may show them to the
class with a slide projector and your narration for each picture.)
