Images

  • Pics4Learning – Automatically produces citation and all are classroom appropriate.
  •  Pixabay – Copyright free images (but ANY word is searchable).
  • Have students make their own illustrations.
  • When I want my young students to use photos, I sometimes search Pixabay and then post them on a Padlet.
