Kids don't need a fancy camera to capture images of the world around them. You can even set it up as a scavenger hunt with specific items to photograph. For example, have students work on some math by looking for specific number of items (1-10) such as 1 car, two trees, three flowers, etc.
If you use a digital camera, you can upload the photos to a site like Shutterfly and make a book. You don't have to order the book but your child can create captions or even a story to go along with the photographs. This is certainly the type of idea to break into parts so it is not overwhelming.
