Finding images you can use in your work:

Just because an image is on the internet or you can find it on Google, doesn’t always mean you can use it.  Sometimes the work is copyright protected and sometimes you may need to provide attribution or cite where the image is from. Of course, creating your own images is always best, but if you can’t, below are some sites you can use. Thank you to Janet Chow for providing this list.

  • Pixabay – high resolution quality photos (skip the top row of images), vector graphics, illustrations (*this one is a keeper)
  • MorgueFile by Creatives for Creatives – high resolution stock photos archive (*we love this one)
  • Photos for Class – This site created by Storyboard is new. All photos use Safe Search, have automatic citation (you do nothing), licensed under Creative Commons.  (*Certainly a one-stop-shop.)

Even if you don’t have to attribute the work, please give the site you used credit underneath the photo or at the end of your project, story, etc.

For example:

Morguefile.com

Good afternoon! Ms. B and I want to know more about you as readers.  Please complete all the questions on the following survey.  Raise your hand if you have a question.  If you finish before our time is up, you may log off and look for a new book or read silently.

  1. I think that we should have more mature books just for gr.6/7

    • Thanks for your comment. I am trying to add these kind of books to our collection, but I have to keep in mind we have a lot of younger students, too, and sometimes the content is not appropriate for them. Come and see me and I can recommend some titles.
