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.
