    I'm looking for something to do with photography as a lesson for my students. The lesson only needs to be about 45 minutes long for 6th graders. Just to let you know we have very LIMITED technology.

    We are going to the art museum and the next day we are going to spend the next day appreciating art. Since my team knows I enjoy photography, they were wondering if I could do a lesson that included photography......any suggestions?

    What do you have to work with in terms of technology?

    Maybe an idea would be to have the class work on a project where they are setting the scene for a photoshoot, but you actually take the photo. They can break into teams and have to work together to come up with a concept (you can give them general guidelines), along with costumes, sets and what not. Bring all the stuff in on one day, they have 30 mins to setup and have to direct you as to where to shoot it from.
