People and Nature: A Tu Bishvat Photography Activity


Beginning with the verse from Deuteronomy, “Are trees of the field human”, students reflect on the relationship between people and nature. Jewish texts, photographs by Yoram Galili, and discussion questions take the students on a journey of discovery which culminates in taking a photograph which reflects their relationship with nature.


Students of all backgrounds and ages will enjoy this creative activity. Celebrate Tu Bishvat by going into nature to reflect and photograph. Sharing student work is facilitated by creating a Sefaria sheet.
