The photos included in this post were among the best photos for Footstep #3 – Take a Walk in your Neighborhood – Out of Eden Walk/Learn project. These photos come from Mr. Martin/Ms. Jaya’s two Social Studies classes. We enjoyed reading all of the reflections and looking at your photos. Click on the images to make them bigger. The directions for the assignment were:

As you walk in your neighborhood or local area, take photos of things that catch your attention. What do you see, feel, hear, smell, or taste? Try to look at the place and the people who live or work there with fresh eyes. Here are some ideas for different kinds of photos you can take:

    • Photos that capture a whole neighborhood scene, and photos that zoom in on a detail you find interesting.

    • Photos where you’re pointing the camera up and photos where you’re pointing the camera towards the ground.

    • Photos of things that are common or familiar in your neighborhood, and photos of things that might be unexpected or surprising.

    • Something special that you’d like to share.

  • Tell the story of why you took these two photos and why you chose to post them. What do you like about the photos you took? What would you like other people in your walking party to notice or understand about them?

  • How, if at all, did taking a walk and/or taking these photos make you think in new or different ways about your neighborhood or local area?
