No, it's not OK to "steal" especially if you put steal in quotation marks.  That shows that you suspect that what you are doing is wrong.  My Mom always said if you think what you are doing is wrong, it probably is.

It's not OK to teach your kids to steal or "steal".  If you see a particular picture that you would like to use, contact the person and explain what you want to use the image for.  You will almost invariably get a positive response.

You could also teach the kid to look for images in the Wiki commons or the free image section of stock photo sites.

That said, here is one that I give permission for you to use in the first grade school project if you wish.  It shows Papa Eagle watching over two babies.
