Photography: Scavenger Hunt

These resources was inspired by Karen Irwin’s post with its purpose being to introduce the camera app to early years learners, and differentiating the task for older students to encourage them to improve their photography skills.

Both resources come under the umbrella of Science and Technology (Living Things), however they could be adapted for any subject area. It’s amazing what you can notice and observe around the environment with this task!

Younger students were taking photos of living and nonliving things whilst the older students were learning about what botanists do and how the plant classification works.

The primary teachers will love this activity. It is a great activity to get the students engaged and interacting. And I hope it will lead the teachers to adapt this format for other projects.

Thank you, Brian, for your kind words. Yes, the students were engaged and the task adaptable to many topic areas whilst developing their photography and digital skills using Keynote.

A great science resource and lesson idea for students of all ages! I like your links to early years, I've used photography on shape hunts and nature hunts with 4 and 5 year olds too. Thanks for sharing your resources too.
