I remember doing a project like that...but I didn't need photos. Just a basic list like (bread...cereal...etc) and a guessed cost. That does seem way over reaching. If My child neeed to do that I would do like said above and take out all the stock and just leave the weekly consumables. and then Photoshop the photo so there's no faces.edit on 9-12-2011 by Vardoger because: (no reason given)

I am opened minded and will entertain the possibility that the assignment is a gross violation of personal privacy, but I would be willing to wager that a more likely story is that the Social Studies teacher is fairly progressive and is trying to broaden the students horizons. My son is in middle school and lessons that can be anchored to his life resonate far more than rote examples.
I wouldn't be surprised if this photo essay from TIME magazine was the inspiration for the assignment.
Regardless of your take on this teacher's assignment, take a look at the photos, it really is illuminating.edit on 9-12-2011 by LordOfArcadia because: (no reason given)
My child said, these are the questions they asked " Does your mother have SOLAR PANELS? Where Exactly does your mother take you camping? Where exactly have you gone hiking? Do you hike and then camp? Does anyone else go with you camping? What do you do when you go camping? Does your mother have alternative energy? Does your mother have stored food? Does your mother have any guns? Does your mother saying anything about "The end of the world"? What kind of remodeling has your mother done to your home? Do you have a "safe room", like a bomb shelter in your home?
