The first day of school might be a distant thought to many, but it’s practically around the corner for teachers. Summer is prime planning time for the school year—classes don’t plan themselves, after all! So we’re kicking off the Back to School season early with our educational toolkit.
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and teachers are certainly old pros at inventing. Every summer they wear many hats, whipping up classroom decorations and outlining projects as part of the school year preparations. And while we can’t help plan the curriculum, our graphics library is full of visual resources perfect for educators.
We’ve hand picked this toolkit of teaching resources featuring customizable graphs and chart templates, imaginative icons, and backgrounds for classroom subjects—plus stock educational photos suited to most scholastic projects.
Here’s a quick preview of the toolkit—or explore the full Back to School toolkit in our library.
Customizable Graphs and Charts
With colorful and fun charts adaptable to any number of different subjects, these eye catching graphics are the perfect way to capture your students’ attention and keep it. As visual literacy gains as one of the most important skills for students in the digital era, information and data visualizations are also becoming key components to curriculum planning—even in non-STEM subjects. Just download these vector templates into Adobe Illustrator (or your favorite graphics editor) to start customizing them and make them your own.
We could write odes to the understated icon—or channel our inner William Carlos Williams: So much depends upon the small icons. While it might seem like high praise, icons do a lot of heavy lifting when it comes to visual literacy and multimodal learning. Perhaps most importantly, they’re short and to the point while still being fun.
So whether they’re accenting presentations and class discussion blogs—or being incorporated into larger infographic designs with our graphs and charts—these icons will help you convey complex ideas quickly and imaginatively for your students.
Back to School Photos
Not to be confused with the often dreaded school portraits or yearbook photos, these school photos are hand picked to inspire students in their work. Running the gamut from K to 12+ and from math to art, we picked these photos for their versatility and adaptability. So whether you’re designing your own motivational posters or putting together an email newsletter for students and parents, these photos are the perfect jumping off point.
You’ll discover all these graphics and more in the full toolkit—just don’t wait to be saved by the bell!
