Photographs For the Classroom

So, here is a photograph I took in BC last year with my wonderful Nikon D3100 DSLR camera. If you cannot tell, that is a Native West Coast hand carved totem pole with the forest in the background. Beside the totem, is a palm tree.

I would use this photograph in my classroom for many reasons:

1) It brings culture and diversity into the classroom and allows for an open, safe and inclusive environment.

2) It can be used as a talking piece to center a lesson around First Nations Art.

3) You can use it to talk about the environment and how First Nations view the environment and our land. Also, you can talk about the totem pole and what it represents.

What do you think?
