I have students complete this assignment before I teach them anything about the 35mm camera. This is a great use of discovery learning, and I find that it helps them to understand the basics of the camera much faster, than when I stand in the front of the room and go over it with them.
They use the camera, google, and the camera instruction guide to work through the questions below. We then as a class go over the answers and I add in more clarification.
- questions that guide them through the parts of the camera
- two compare and contrast charts
