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 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.

How to cite an image: CESU fourth grade

Step 1: Pick a wild animal. You will be looking for an excellent picture of this animal in its natural habitat.


Step 2: Use the databases and search engines below to find great images of your animal. Check all four places before you decide your favorite image.




Step 4: Create a Google Document. Name it with the name of your animal.


Step 5: Copy and paste your favorite image of your animal into the Google Document.


Step 6: Copy and paste the citation (URL) for your image into the Google Document, below your image


Step 7: Share your document with Mrs. Rankin and Mrs. Redford
