Pinhole Camera

To make a pinhole camera you need: sellotape, a cardboard cylinder (empty toilet roll), some rubber bands, greaseproof paper, black paper, tinfoil and pins.

First we brought in an empty toilet roll.
On one end of the toilet roll we put on some tinfoil.
On the other end we put on greaseproof paper.
We put an elastic band on the tinfoil and greaseproof to make sure they didn’t fall off.
Then we put a little hole through the tinfoil.
We made a tube with black paper and stuck it halfway down the toilet roll.
We sellotaped the black paper so it didn’t fall.

When we used our cameras to look through the window at the houses opposite the school the houses appeared upside down.
