In the past G3 UOI unit how we express ourselves , our central Idea is Photography is a means of communicating perspective.
Despite being forced to stay at home, Grade 3 are still loving to inquire at home and were able to fully make the most of our access to technology. Using photography as a means of communicating perspective, our fourth UOI of the school year, we were able to offer our own perspectives and offer a new take on creative ideas from within our own home.
Our unit initially looked at the concept of light, and how important light is to the way we view things. This led us to discover the importance of angles, distance, light sources and patterns when viewing and taking photographs. sometimes we can even fall for tricks of the light through optical illusions.

After learning the technique of taking photos by borrowing places, the students finished their own works at home.
portraits. We learned what a portrait is, and how to take a good photograph, remembering the rule of thirds, centering and ensuring the point of interest draws the eye. These rules were applied throughout our work.
Next, we moved on to landscape photographs.

The use of light is very important, and we found fun ways to use light to our advantage, particularly when it came to shadows.
关于摄影的思考Thinking about this lesson
Taking photographs involves a lot of forward thought, and we discovered different ways of taking the same point of interest by adjusting our angles.
Having complete access to technology allowed us to study not only how to take photographs, but also how to present them to the world. We looked at different ways of getting our message across, and learned some valuable skills in the process. Uploading, downloading, editing, cropping, blogging – all valuable skills to master at such a young age.
We learned that photographs tell us stories, and that a picture paints a thousand words.
We also discovered how photographs can be manipulated and that context applies to the pictures we view as well as words we read. Critical thinking at its best.
We have inquired and studied the history of photography, the types of photography, the light of photography, the difference between mobile photography and camera photography, and the composition of photography.
Through the video, we know the development history of photographic equipment, and also know a lot about photographic composition. Look, I took this by myself!
During the outbreak, we found some of the most moving photos. Although the medical staff are exhausted, in order to protect our life, health and safety, cure more confirmed cases, save more lives, and sacrifice their rest and even the time of accompanying their families. In addition, we compared cell phones with cameras through Wayne map.
Taking photos is not only because of the yearning for beautiful scenery, but also the release of their own spiritual happiness. A good picture is a combination of their own telepathy and real beauty.
十岁成长足迹Ten years of growth
Because it's the tenth birthday of G3, the summative assessment we designed is to complete their own ten year growth footprint. In the process of sorting out the photos with Mom and Dad, the students reviewed their growth, which was of great significance.
At the age of 10, every child is excited and happy. Collect and organize, edit with modern technology (image editing APP), and make their own electronic album, recording the best moments in the past decade.
Through sorting out the KWL form, we have a deeper understanding of the photography unit. We make ten year old growth photos on the computer.
Finish off unit, we collaborated on projects that drew together all our approaches to learning and skills of the last few weeks. It was a hard task, to work together when team members are isolated at home, but Grade 3 rose to the occasion and produced some fantastic pieces of work.
If you ever need someone to take your photograph, go and ask your friends in Grade 3!
