Picture Yourself in Paris (or anywhere)!
From Creative Commons, or a similar source of photos, find and save images from a country that your students are studying or that speaks the language your students are studying.
Students will edit photos of themselves (best taken against a plain background) and paste themselves into photos that show interesting places, products or landmarks of another country. They will then do some research about that country.
After students have researched the place they are “visiting”, they should write up a summary of that place, explaining where they are in the country, and what they have learned about the geography, culture, traditions, products, religions, and so forth. They should place their image in their report, with a caption, if desired, stating where they are. Finish reports with a citation of resources.
Learn about the Magic Wand Tool, at the Related Content link, above, so it is easy to show students how to select an area quickly. It is also important to be familiar with layers in PhotoShop Elements, to combine then flatten two photos into one.
