Project Description

Kindergartners are exposed to a variety of technology projects throughout the year. In this activity students use digital cameras to create their own photo counting book. With the coaching of upper grade buddies, kindergartners find objects that illustrate numbers 1 to 10. Using digital cameras they take pictures of objects, the number itself, and hand symbols that represent the numbers. Photos are compiled into a book and posted on the web.
