The KET Image Bank is a collection of royalty-free photographs available for educational use. The pictures are arranged in interactive catalogs. Click on the "view" button to look through the list of images in the catalog and then click on the name of the bird you would like to view. On that page, you will find a thumbnail of an image or images, along with a paragraph about the animal. Clicking on the thumbnail will take you to a high resolution image you can download.

Using images and video in the classroom can enrich the learning experience for students. The KET Image Bank, along with the Teacher's Domain Building Blocks collection, are open media resources designed specifically for classroom and individual educational use.
The KET Image Bank is a collection of interactive catalogs with images and information for students, teachers, and parents to use in educational media presentations and reports for print or web. The images in this resource were taken by KET staff and the individual photographers have granted permission for royalty-free, instructional use.
Catalogs featuring living organisms are arranged by plant and animal classification. Catalogs highlighting locations are classified by topics like, national parks, national monuments and Kentucky landmarks. Each image is accompanied by a brief informational paragraph with a few pertinent facts about the subject in the photograph.
New images and catalogs will be added monthly so if you don't find what you're looking for initially, please check back.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
