Snowman snapshots 2013

Third graders enjoy this project every winter. It's a great way to teach point-of-view and the way artists and photographers choose the way they look at their subject. Looking at American photographer Ansel Adams' photos like the ones below of a snowy tree - near and far - really helps them to understand, as does using paper viewfinders to change what you see in a format.

    Fabulous project - these (once again) look great! My favorite is the snowman with the candy cane cocoa and matching scarf.

  3. Outstanding project! Simple and effective presentation of an important concept! Really gets them thinking about composition possibilities...
