Up to twenty resources may be used without additional permission in any student or teacher non-commercial educational project. (See license.) Choose from over 4,600 photos, 6,000 maps, 173 virtual reality panoramas, 1,150 stereoviews, and 11 pieces of royalty-free Florida music you can use in school projects.

up arrowFlorida Then and Now consists of over 70 readings, questions, teacher notes, reading strategies, and activity sheets for Florida history. The reading passages are written at the upper elementary student's instructional reading level, so they are also appropriate as independent reading passages for secondary students. All of the files are available as PDFs for easy duplication.

Florida Photos
