Photography and video are a large part of C5 children’s classroom exploration. They are discovering the multiple parts of a camera and the step-by-step mechanics of taking a photo alongside their friends and the facilitation of their teacher. Understanding how a photo goes from a viewfinder to a piece of paper in one’s hand takes a lot of hands-on practice and patience. The children’s photographs are used in classroom curriculum as a way to help children better understand their environment and creatively express themselves. At C5, we believe electronic use, such as using a camera, is a natural, and necessary, link to the children’s home life. And, as such, is used in a very intentional, focused, and hands-on way.
