Resource Overview

Teach your pupils to become super nature snappers, with these fantastic macrophotography lesson materials, developed with support from Wild Wonder Photography. 
Photography is a great tool for children to explore the outdoor environment in a different way. Using cameras encourages detailed observation and the consideration of alternative viewpoints, whilst enabling pupils to record species, behaviour and/or abstract patterns. This lesson will help pupils to develop their understanding of perspective, viewpoint and composition, as well as portraying their school grounds in a different light. Take a look at our incredible images for some inspiration to get you started…
