I used the Snipping Tool to save these images. See the post on using the
I found this idea on a Science blog...
National Geographic posts a picture of the Day, and this teacher used it to have students make observations, inferences, and predictions.
If you go to the link, you will see today's picture, which I would preview before showing to the kids - it is Nat. Geo. after all. If you scroll down on the page, you can see past pictures organized by categories, such as People & Culture, Nature & Weather, Animals, History, Science & Space, etc.
Each image also has a short paragraph with information about the picture.
Ideas for the Classroom
- Use National Geographic Kids Images for younger students to make verbal observations and predictions. (K-2 kid friendly images)
- Use images for story starters, character trait discussions, Inquiry or I wonder discussion starters.
