  13. Other Flickr Lesson Ideas • Animals of Australia (Science) • Flat Stanley (Elementary) • Current Events (History/Government) • Field Trip Presentation (All Subjects) • Scientific Diagrams (Science) • Art Vocabulary Analysis (Art) Educational Uses of Flickr

  14. LESSON 1: Animals of Australia • In this science lesson, you can explore Flickr’s tags by searching for various Australian animals. You can even view the images as a slideshow. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/australia/ Educational Uses of Flickr

  15. LESSON 2: Flat Stanley • In this beloved lesson, you can explore Flickr’s tags and clusters to view all the places that Flat Stanley has been. You can use existing images of Flat Stanley or you can create your own page that illustrates all of the places that your students have sent Flat Stanley. http://www.flickr.com/photos/tags/flatstanley/clusters Educational Uses of Flickr

  16. LESSON 3: Current Events • In this history/government lesson, you can use Flickr’s World Map to identify locations that pertain to current events. This lesson can utilize fact finding skills by locating current event stories on news websites, such as www.cnn.com , and then the events can be searched on Flickr’s World Map. Educational Uses of Flickr

  17. LESSON 4: Field Trip Presentation • In this all-subject area lesson, you can use Flickr to create a page devoted to presenting images from a field trip. You can display hundreds of photos, include detailed captions for each photo, group them into clusters, and have the whole thing be viewable as a slideshow. Sure beats a tri-fold board and glue! http://www.flickr.com/photos/53074617@N00/sets/72157594359989657/ Educational Uses of Flickr

  18. LESSON 5: Scientific Diagrams • In this science lesson, you can use Flickr to create a page that includes images with scientific labeling using hot spots. You can upload the images yourself and have students view them, or you can have each student upload their own to share with the class. The image at left shows that you can create Hot Spot points by using the “Add Note” option from the tool menu. http://www.flickr.com/photos/introvertedspirit/749126422/ Educational Uses of Flickr

  19. LESSON 6: Art Vocabulary Analysis • In this art lesson, you can use Flickr to create a page that includes images with illustrated vocabulary hot spots. Not only can you use hot spots to identify art vocabulary within an image, but you can use the Comment section to begin an art analysis dialogue amongst the students to get them in the habit of using proper art vocabulary to critique fellow classmates artwork. http://www.flickr.com/photos/introvertedspirit/749159746/ Educational Uses of Flickr
