If you visit this link for Edublogger Challenge #5, you will find valuable information about image copyright and Creative Commons. I’ve always found it a challenge to find images that were copyright free so I favored using my own images whenever possible. Fortunately, many edublogs users shared some of their favorite links which I’ve incorporated into a Public Google Bookmarks list: http://goo.gl/lists/oBkp . I’m still looking for more sites that offer Creative Commons license for music. If you have any additional links, please let me know and I’ll add it to the list.
Images for Writing Prompts
With my newly acquired knowledge, I decided to show my students how to search for images to go with their creative writing assignments. The children are just beginning so I had them write one sentence about the image they chose. The children enjoyed it so much we’re going to do it more often. (Maggie & James)
