Today we are going to be thinking about the best places to find images that we can use in our projects. Sometimes the images can be ones we create----but sometimes we want to use a great photograph or drawing that someone else has created. Pictures make projects even more interesting and exciting for your audience!
Our goals today are:
*Learn about a variety of places to search for images that are free and available for your use
*Learn how to cite your image sources
*Practice your cutting and pasting skills!
Minilesson: Can I use it? Why do I write a citation for it? How do I write a citation for it?
Some images are for sale...you can't use those.
Some images are "resuable" as long as you cite them.
Places to look for reusable images - listed on library website
