Activity Description:

Get your students outside with this exciting winter photo challenge! This week’s challenge gives your students the opportunity to venture outdoors and use their creative eye to photograph anything in your community, (e.g. a store, bridge, landmark, park, statue, monument, etc.) that they feel makes their community unique. Ask your students to share or send these photographs to you. Then, have your students select the photograph that best represents what they see and experience in their daily lives. Share this photo on their behalf, and help them share their community with the country!

What makes your local community unique?


While we encourage any and every idea, please be sure to keep student identities (faces and names) out of SA pictures!
