Here are a few photos from Lusaka, Zambia taken by sixth-grade students in Ms. Conte’s students. I was very pleased with the final products and enjoyed collaborating with her class and sharing exemplars from student work in Chennai, India.

Directions: Plan to take a walk in your neighborhood or local area. It may include places on your sketch map. You can walk by yourself or with a classmate, friend, or family member. As you walk in your neighborhood or local area, take photos of things that catch your attention. What do you see, feel, hear, taste, or smell? 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.
