Here is a page that talks about guidelines for Fair Use in student projects.  These guidelines aren't the actual law, I think they are just meant to be helpful to educators and students.

Students must credit sources with full bibliographic description where available.

A photograph or illustration may be used in its entirety but no more than 5 images by an artist or photographer may be reproduced or otherwise incorporated as part of an educational multimedia project.

When using photographs and illustrations from a published collective work not more than 10% or 15 images, whichever is less, may be reproduced or otherwise incorporated as part of an educational multimedia project
