Depth of Field is the distance between the nearest and farthest objects in a scene that appear acceptably sharp in an image. Depth of Field is controlled by the Aperture during exposure. Typically Depth of Field extends 1/3 in front of the subject and 2/3 behind the subject. Several factors effect Depth of Field: the aperture, the format (FX vs. DX), focal length.

Generally, shallow Depth of Field can be had with large apertures (f/1.4, f/1.8, f/2) and deep Depth of Field with small apertures (f/11, f/16, f/22).

Your assignment is to shoot a scene, still, what ever you want and experiment with depth of field. Isolate a subject, get it all in focus. Explore how changing the aperture affects the final output of the scene.

If you have a zoom, try one end, wide and explore the apertures then try the tele end. See how DoF changes as you shoot.

Post images you like and why. Take notes (you don't have to, but it will help you figure out what's going one).

Edit to add:
Only rule here: use a Nikon.
