Imagery

http://elzr.com/imagery/

This site claims to be a place for “better image searching”…and it is pretty cool! Just type in a keyword and boom! You have lots of images to choose from! They’re displayed as thumbnails in a web album format, and if you click on a thumbnail, the full image is displayed below the the gallery.

Students can download the images to use in projects (be sure they know to cite their source), or images can just be projected from the computer. As you choose pictures to display below the gallery, you can change topics and just add to your collection. Each search is kept in a separate tab if you want to return to it during your session.

Easy to use, and a great resource!

Check out this search for Abraham Lincoln images.

Tell us about how you use IMAGERY with students.
