If you are an elementary teacher who loves elementary technology, you’ve come to the right place to find a great set of resources for fall. I’ve collected a set of websites that will help you to have a great fall.

FREE Fall Clipart

(and don’t we all love free stuff)

Remember when dealing with clipart, photos, images, movies, audio, etc. that free does not mean “no responsibility”. When looking for free clipart, you need to always look at the terms of service. Whether you read the terms of service or not, you are still responsible for abiding by them. So, go ahead and read them, first. I’ve included them here for the websites I found to make life easier for you.

  • About.com has a good collection of fall clipart. You can see an example of it on the side of this blog. The cute little computer guy with the fall leaves came from that site. They do require a link back, according to their terms of use.
    Classroom Clipart has some really great fall clipart. It is free for K-12 students and teachers to use within a classroom. However, you do need to provide a link and give them credit, according to their Copyright – Terms of Use. I do want to warn that it is popup heavy. However, remember that free sites have to pay for their upkeep somehow. If you are totally against popups and advertising, you will probably need to pay for your images.
  • Free Web Images and Clipart has an “Autumn Line” collection. This website offers several free borders that you can use for fall printables. According to their Terms of Use, you can freely use the images. They would appreciate linkbacks. However, they are not required.
  • Awesome Clipart for Educators has not only some great fall clipart, but also some fall fonts, icons, backgrounds, and lines. I cannot find a terms of use link on their website. However, the website does proclaim that the clipart is free. I assume a link would be appreciated.
  • Also, when looking for free fall graphics, don’t forget to check out Morguefile.com . Don’t worry, this is nothing morbid. Apparently when newspaper pictures are no longer needed, they are places in the “morgue file”. This website is based on that idea. Most of the pictures here can be freely used without even having to provide a link. However, a link is always a good thing, even when not required. When you click on each picture, you can see the exact copyright requirements for that picture.

Keep watching here for part 2 of great websites for fall. Next up will be some great sources for lesson plans that integrate technology into fall activites.

Use the comment section to let me know what you think about the free clipart. Also, if you already have some great links for integrating technology and fall activities and you would like to share them, send me an email to michelle@ScholarTechOnline.com . Be sure to include your name (and website, if you have one) so that you can receive credit for your idea.
