Media Language / Semiotics Fun & Easy Photo Scavenger Hunt
A fun and easy practical style task for students to allow them to demonstrate their developing awareness of the connotations of different colours, angles, facial expressions, body language, locations, costumes, props etc..

This task is best done after a basic lesson on semiotic analysis of media language (I have a lesson about that on here too)

This activity involves allowing students to leave your lesson and go round the school taking photos in groups on their phones in an attempt to 'collect' a list of photos on the scavenger hunt sheet. The teacher will then mark the photos as and when the students regularly return to the room throughout the lesson (full instructions are on the powerpoint).

It is a fun way of introducing students to the connotations of different media language, and to group work, and photography. I often buy cheap little prizes eg chocolate bars for the group who took the best quality photos overall etc..
Save for later
