Today I wanted to share with your several sites that have images you can use in your classroom with your students that are copyright-friendly. I hope you find them as useful as I did. :)
Flickr Storm To view images that have a creative commons license click on the advanced search just below the search field. Great for visual learners. However, like any site that isn't created for education you must be careful when allowing students to search on their own.
Openphoto This site beautiful images, use categories in the middle of the page to browse or click on the search bar at the top to search for specifics.
Pics4Learning A site full of copyright-friendly images for students and teachers.
Public Domain Pictures Tons of beautiful pictures at this site, you can add your own if you are a budding photographer.
I also wanted to share some ideas for using these photos. One of my favorite ways to use photos is when I am teaching students new vocabulary words. A quick presentation with the word and an image that describes that word seems to work really well all my students but especially the low readers or the ELL students.
How do you plan to use these sites in your classroom?
