  • Grades 4–12

    Activity 1
    Students will make a list of reoccurring special events or family traditions. From that list they will choose one event or tradition to write about. Students should consider what steps and rituals they perform to get ready for this activity. Then students will write a paragraph describing these steps in order.

    Activity 2
    Using smartphones, tablets, or other cameras, students will partner up to take portraits of each other. Each student will have the opportunity to be both the photographer and the subject of the portrait. In the role of photographer, students will make decisions about setting, pose, and composition, and will direct the subject. After each student has been in both roles, the class can discuss what it was like to take on each role, which they preferred, and why.
