Visual Literacy Activities with Online ResourcesLast week I talked about visual literacy in Visual Literacy Activities with Children's Picture Books. I suggested children's picture books make a natural place to start teaching kids about visual literacy. Here are some online resources I've found that also support visual literacy. Almost any website can be examined from the perspective of its visual communications. Here are particular websites that I think are stand-outs in terms of visual literacy possibilities for kids: At Howtoons, you'll find instructions on how to build all sorts of things. Your teens might be interested in Clean Up Your Mess which explains visual design beautifully. Another great place to find diagrams I think your kids will like and appreciate is What I Made, where artist Scott Bedford shares wonderful creative projects via visually enticing diagrams. Origami Kids is a great website for kids to develop visual literacy with text instruction, diagrams and stop-motion animations all available.
