  1. Wow, this is an awesome list, Jen! The Big 25 – I’m ready!

    You’ve covered all the bases, listing so many wonderful uses for images in a classroom. I’ve done many of them with my students, but I didn’t think to list them….hmm, heading over to edit my post right now…tee hee.

    Thanks for the comprehensive list. You rock!
