The Noun Project: Free Images for Educators!

A friend of mine showed me an awesome website for images called "The Noun Project." Ever since learning about it I have found countless uses for the simple images posted on the site. 
The Noun Project collects, organizes and adds to the highly recognizable symbols that form the world's visual language, so we may share them in a fun and meaningful way.
Essentially, the purpose of this website is to produce a simple graphic for every noun in the English language. The images are posted as high-quality vector files that can be imported, resized, and modified by any photo editing software. The images are in the public domain or shared with Creative Commons licenses. Hundreds of designers have contributed images to the repository and new submissions are actively encouraged.

Some of the images available from The Noun Project
For educators, the possible uses for these images are endless: bulletin boards, signs, student projects, scavenger hunts, labels are a few ideas that come to mind. Elementary teachers will have an especially fun time finding uses for these great images!
