Spotting trick photography

Guess the fake photos


Ages 6 and up

Can an elephant use a giant yo-yo? Part of media literacy is understanding that not even photographs always tell the truth. Help kids learn that lesson with these wacky photos in National Geographic's Fake Photo Quiz. Kids get to look at a series of impossible-looking photos and guess if they're real or fake. A pop-window explains how the fakes were created or where the real ones were taken.

If your kids would like to try creating their own "fake photos," they might like this book.
