HHMI (Howard Hughes Medical Institute) resources for science teachers and students include videos, lesson plans, apps, short films and print materials. The new EarthViewer app is amazing! I was introduced to it during the NSTA conference. And everything is free!!!
A colleague introduced me to Movie Segments for Warm-Ups and Follow-Ups. It looks like a useful site that includes discussion questions to use before and after introducing a topic. The following is from the blog introduction:
This blog contains a series of movie segments to be used to brainstorm, warm up, follow up, and activate schemata, preparing the students for the topic that will be discussed in class. Here you will find the segments, the lesson plans, and varied topics to foster conversation. You may use the activities for a full two-hour class or they can be used separately to brainstorm or wrap up the topic, focusing on conversation, vocabulary and listening comprehension.
Izzit provides FREE educational videos, and daily current event articles which include discussion questions and related vocabulary.
Biology Pop is a site that allows you to search biology articles, videos, games and reviews of apps in a Pinterest-like style. You can choose from seven different categories that feature videos, articles, games, and reviews of apps about topics in biology.
I am a follower of Free Technology for Teachers. This blog, written by Richard Bryne, is a great resource for teachers trying to stay up to date with free resources that can be used in the classroom.
We love science. You love science. That’s why we spend our days rounding up the best science videos and streams from around the universe.
