Photography can be both an art form and a form of scientific inquiry. Photos of People and Cultures can promote human understanding better than any written words. This site from National Geographic can serve both ends if used properly. Art teachers "focus" on tips and techniques and photography advice areas, while science/social studies teachers will easily locate a wide range of plant, animal, culture, and geography images. As always, the photos themselves are exquisite.

tag(s): animals (290), photography (162)

In the Classroom

Share a photo of the day as an activator at the start of a lesson on your projector or interactive whiteboard. Allow a student of the day to select his/her photo of the day as a class inspiration. Share a photo as a visual writing prompt. Use tools on your IWB to discover and reveal design elements in the photos in art class. Use selected collections on laptops with student partners (galleries) to provide a visual experience of a location or culture you are studying, asking students to observe for visual evidence of some of the major concepts you have discussed in class.

Art and Social Studies teachers will find this collection of contemporary stamp artwork interesting both for its style and for the range of themes that have been incorporated into stamps. The oversize artwork helps illustrate the details in these images.

tag(s): africa (180), african american (114)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a lesson on the evolution of mail services in the US, and how services such as the pony express was affected by Westward expansion. Allow students to explore the site on classroom computers, using the stamp template as a formative assessment of their understanding. To make the stamp activity more content-based, have students design their stamps to reflect what they learned rather than allowing them to draw anything they can think of. History teachers will like this one!

OK, this one's mostly for fun, and we're showing our age. Still, the online version of the famous drawing toy performs much as the original did. Try this one on your students as an example of what high tech was thirty years ago. Just don't try to clear your screen by turning it upside down and shaking it! Operate the game using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

tag(s): drawing (81)

In the Classroom

Have young ones practice left and right by working with a partner at classroom computers, with one partner directing "left" or "right, "up" or "down" while the other operates the keys. Together they can make a drawing! Older students will be amused by the simplicity. See what they can create with just one continuous line.

Native American art and culture is the subject of this elegant site from the Minneapolis Institute of Art. Built around the cultures of the Northeast Woodlands, the Mississippi Valley, the Plains, the Southwest, and the Northwest Coast, the site offers images and text that can enhance any unit on Native Americans. There are also links to tribal web sites.

tag(s): india (36)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a learning center or station during a unit on Native American culture. Have students explore the site with the intentions of presenting summaries of specific cultures or artworks. Have students create a multimedia presentation using YUtellStory, reviewed here. This site allows users to narrate a picture. Challenge students to find a photo of the art, the tribes or the regions (legally permitted to be reproduced), and then narrate the photo as if it is a news report. To find Creative Commons images for student projects (with credit, of course), try PhotoPin, reviewed here.

Play with a toolbox full of resources used by artists, and create unique works of art with this interactive resource. Learn about line, shape, color, balance, space, and movement through animated multimedia presentations, find examples of each element in works of art from museums, and then design your own pieces incorporating those tools. The site also includes short videos showing professional artists creating original compositions using the toolkit. Teachers can customize a toolkit to match a unit or lesson.

tag(s): colors (80), design (83), perspective (11)

In the Classroom

Share this in an art lesson or as a refresher resource available for students who get "stucK' in design processes. Since the interactives use audio, even younger students can understand them, especially the one about color. If you do infographic or other visual projects, the basic design information in this resource will help your students create projects that have greater visual appeal. Mark this one in your favorites and share it on your class web page for students to access outside of class.

Students reading Twain's books may be surprised to know that he lived in Hartford, not along the Mississippi. This site from the restored home offers a virtual tour, a kids' section with a word search, and some very basic information about the house. This one's worth a look for those interested in late 19th century architecture.

In the Classroom

Teachers wanting to introduce some of Twain's personal life before or after reading one of his books can do just that with this site. Share the site with students on the interactive whiteboard, watching the virtual tour or examining the exhibits. There may not be a ton of information, but this is a great way to get students started on understanding just a little bit more about the famous author.

Part of a far larger site, this section offers lots of instructions on the basics of origami, the Japanese art of paper folding.

In the Classroom

Use this site as an supplement to the book "One Thousand Paper Cranes." After the students have completed the book, use some class time to allow students to create their own cranes in class. Introduce the site on the interactive whiteboard before allowing students to explore it further in cooperative learning groups. Once students have created a crane, encourage them to try more complicated shapes and figures! This is a great way to lead into a conversation on the significance of origami and why it was so important in the book.
