Science Lessons That Rock

What educators are saying

Fun end of the year activity to get students moving and seeing how the science we learned about this year is all around them.
The project isn't perfect but it was exactly the inspiration I needed to finish the year. The students enjoyed it as well


This is a great project for virtual distance learning! In this project, students will take or find photographs that relate to a concept you have recently taught. For example, if you recently taught kinetic and potential energy, students can take a photograph of a backyard swing set or a stretched out rubber band.

There are 2 versions of this assignment included:

Version 1: Students will take original photographs with their own camera or phone. Students will upload them to a power point or google slide presentation, include a description of where the photograph was taken, and an explanation of how it relates to the assigned topic.

Version 2: Students will find photographs on the internet relating to the assigned topic. They will upload them to a power point or google slide presentation, explain how they relate to the assigned topic, and include a citation.

This product is entirely editable so you can modify the assignment to meet the needs of your students.

Included in your purchase:

- 7 slide editable powerpoint that includes teacher directions, student handout, and grading rubrics for both versions of the assignment. Version 2 also includes a handout teaching students how to properly cite photographs in APA format.

- 2 sample photo journals to show students, one for each version of the assignment.
