A Creator's Rights and Responsibilities
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.

Have students visit PhotosforClass to find a Creative Commons photo on a keyword of their choice. Have them download the photo and look at the attribution URL for the photo.
