Introduce this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Then have students explore this site independently or in small groups. Have students go through the slide show and select one image to analyze. Next, have students create a multimedia presentation using PowerPoint Online, reviewed here. This PowerPoint allows you to narrate a picture. Challenge students to describe the photo as if it is a news report.
