Obviously, photos can be great educational tools with English Language Learners and with any students (see The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons). I post about many photo galleries, also called slideshows. To do it in a little more organized way, though, I recently began this weekly feature called “Photo Galleries Of The Week.” This post is a “round-up” of online slideshows I’m adding to various “The Best…” lists:

Finding Beauty In Silent Storms is a neat photo gallery from CNN.

Unusual Bridges For Animals – Wildlife Overpasses is a photo gallery from The World Geography. I’m adding it to The Best Images Of Spectacular Bridges (& How Students Can Make Their Own).

Photos: Faces of citizenship is a slideshow from CNN. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship.

Picture Of The Year: The Sixth Annual Wikimedia Commons POTY Contest is a photo gallery from…Wikimedia Commons.

The Fantastic Machine That Found the Higgs Boson is a photo gallery from The Atlantic. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About Higgs Boson, The “God Particle.”

The 10 best closing lines of books – in pictures is from The Guardian.
