We learned that you can’t just take any picture off of the internet and put it on your blog or in a video or use it for a project. We talked about how sad we would feel if we worked hard on something (like an art project) and someone took a picture and posted it as their own work. If you take someone else’s work and post it as your own, you are not being honest.
We talked about some options for posting pictures on our blog…
- You can take your own picture with a camera. This is what Fen did when he posted a blog post about fish.
- You can draw a picture or build a picture online. This is what 2B did when we made a poster last week.
- Find free images online… we used unsplash.com to do that for this week’s challenge!
We then took some time to explore the options above and find or make or take pictures we can post on the blog safely!
We wanted to share this picture because he is a working robot and his head can pop off. He has four legs which is cool. We also play a game with robots so that’s what gave us the idea to share this picture. -Zach and Liam
I drew a diamond because I love diamonds. I love them because they are sparkly and because you can put them on rings. They are the most prettiest.
We picked a mosquito to tell people that we think they are the most dangerous insects on earth. They can give people diseases and kill people.
-Gabriel and Liam
I picked this picture because I am an Iron Kid. I love swimming, running, and biking. Next year, I might do a sprint. -Fenway
I took this picture because I think it’s important to collaborate. The Dot Day encourages other people and the art work behind me is all a collaboration by our class. -Noa
I drew this picture because it’s important to read because when you read it gives you information depending on which book you read. When you read, if you read the book multiple times, you can remember what the answers are.
I think people should not laugh at other people because it will hurt their feelings.
I drew this because I’ve always imagined candy land in my dreams. I have a pet cat and I wanted to do something like a cat so I made a rainbow cat.
I drew this because I like candy and it’s good to not go on the computer a lot… that’s why I drew it.
I picked this picture because I really like mini horses and they’re cute and fluffy. -Micah
So we like it because we like foxes and we also like that it is cute.
-Sophia and Abby
I like narwhals because their horn looks cool. I wonder if narwhals are rare or not? -Coby
We looked on Unsplash to find powerful sharks. We wanted to use the picture from the iPad and also draw a picture. -Ben and Amitai
I drew this because I like bunnies and they are really fluffy. -Raisa
I drew a bunny picture because bunnies are my favourite animal. -Rachel
