We don't supply the image or graphic files due to copyright issues so you will need to use your own.

Couldn't the person creating the lesson plan create the graphics and assign a common license that allows educators to use the files as well?

I know this is quite dated, but for our current update we now supply as many images and graphics as possible. ​
