thinking out loud

So I need to start prepping for this girl scout thing I’ll be doing for my moms co-workers troupe at the beginning of June. I’ll be helping them earn their photography badges.  They’re my nieces age (10-13) so I think something hands on would be cool for them but since we won’t have access to a photo darkroom I’m going to have to get creative. I was thinking I could bring a variety of cameras for them to see and handle and have my instant cameras loaded so they could have something in their hands that day and maybe shoot some digital too and show them how you can manipulate things on photoshop… but I’m not quite sure. I’m excited to teach them but I’m not the greatest teacher so this is going to be a challenge for me. If you were a kid learning about photography for the first time, what are some questions you would have?
