This lesson meets standards for Common Core ELA, CASEL, AASL and ISTE.

It's common for kids to use images they find online, for school projects or just for fun. But kids don't often understand which images are OK to use and which ones aren't. Help your students learn about the rights and responsibilities they have when it comes to the images they create and use.

Students will be able to:
  • Define "copyright" and explain how it applies to creative work.
  • Describe their rights and responsibilities as creators.
  • Apply copyright principles to real-life scenarios.
