Finding multimedia to use in your teaching without copyright infringement concerns can be a challenge.
One source to check out for Social Studies/History, is the National Park Service media collection.
With over 26,000 photos, 2,100 videos, and 600 audio files the National Park Service media collection provides a wealth of material, most of which is in the public domain. A copyright symbol © indicates that the creator may retain some rights to the work, but in all of the searches I’ve done for materials to use in classroom projects, I have not yet run into that situation.
You can even access one of the more than 110 webcams that NPS has set up around the country, including this one of Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park.
