Photos for Class + Canva = Fun Animal Stories Photos for Class is a great tool for locating Creative Commons licensed images that your students can use in all kinds of projects. The great thing about Photos for Class is that when students download an image from the site all of the attribution information that they need is included in the image's footer. This afternoon I saw a neat example of using Photos for Class to create a simple meme or one-image story. The example was on the Storyboard That Facebook page (Storyboard That owns Photos for Class). In the example they had an image of a polar bear and a fun fact about polar bears. When I saw the sample this afternoon I immediately recognized how easy and fun it could be for students to create their own animal stories through a combination of Photos for Class and Canva.

Google Ngram Viewer The Google Ngram Viewer is an online phrase-usage graphing tool originally developed by Jon Orwant and Will Brockman of Google, inspired by a prototype (called "Bookworm") created by Jean-Baptiste Michel and Erez Aiden from Harvard and Yuan Shen from MIT. It charts the yearly count of selected n-grams (letter combinations)[n] or words and phrases, as found in over 5.2 million books digitized by Google Inc (up to 2008). The words or phrases (or ngrams) are matched by case-sensitive spelling, comparing exact uppercase letters, and plotted on the graph if found in 40 or more books during each year (of the requested year-range). The Ngram tool was released in mid-December 2010 and now supports searches for parts of speech and wildcards. The word-search database was created by Google Books and was based originally on 5.2 million books published between 1500 and 2008.
