Plagiarism and Citing Sources

FullSizeRenderOver the past couple weeks all third, fourth, and fifth graders have started to explore plagiarism and how it relates to what we do at school.

We’ve explored the concept of Creative Commons (CC) and learned how to do a Google Search that only returns CC-licensed images by using the Search Tools, so we know that if we use an image from the Internet that it’s okay with the image owner for us to¬†use that image.

It was great to see the students grow as they wrestled with the concept of ownership as we try to make a effort not to accidentally steal things from the Internet.
