Big Huge Labs - Let your students create with pictures!

Big Huge Labs offers TONS of free things you can do with your photos, and best of all you do not need to sign up or join anything in order to use the site!  Great for our upper elementary and middle school students who are often left out from using certain online sites because of the "must be over 13 years of age to get an account" rule.  On this site, you can create great projects, like:
  • Trading Cards
  • Motivational Posters
  • Magazine Covers
  • Movie Posers
  • Name Badges
  • Jigsaw puzzles
  • AND MUCH MORE!
So, I am sure you are wondering...How can I use this in my classroom?
Well here are a few ideas I came up with...

Create a movie poster for a book or historical event.  Have students choose who would play important roles.



Create a motivational poster based on the main theme of a story

Create a magazine cover for a research report.

Create trading cards for story characters or important science or historical figures.
