Starter Resources

After exploring the naturescapes projects, you may want to create your own. If you have a digital still or video camera, go outside and create your own photographs of nature. Regardless of whether you live in the city or country, there are interesting natural environments everywhere. Start in your backyard, garden, or local park. Or, take your camera on a field trip or vacation.

If you'd like to create a project about an animal but don't have movies or photographs, this is the page will help! For each of the animals below, you'll find photographs and movies you can use in your project.

You'll need a player that can handle QuickTime videos to see the movies. Go to Apple: QuickTime Player to download a free player.
