Wikimedia Commons is a wiki website run by the Wikimedia Foundation which serves as a free media repository for sister projects Wikipedia and wiktionary.

Teachers may use the images, but be careful of attributing where required by a copyright licence, and be careful of national laws which may vary from US copyright law or interpretation.

Like Wikipedia, it's not censored except for illegal images (e.g child abuse), but it will also enthusiastically accept images of no illustrative, aesthetic or artistic value whatsoever. The inevitable consequence is that the quality of imagery is extremely variable, and it may be difficult to find the gems hidden amongst the turds. There are also many results of people pointing cameras in the direction of their, or their partner's, genitalia, producing not safe for work images.
