How I Use It
I use this site a lot. When introducing a new research topic, I always check here for videos and other activities to include in the presentation / lesson. Many times I will show the video as a "get to the know the topic" type thing. I also teach note-taking to my older students with the video. We watch and they have to take down at least five important facts. We have then made a table recording how many times a fact was written down (showcasing importance). This is a also a great way to introduce journaling or writing.
My Take
This is one of the best web tools that I use. It is a go-to for me and my classroom activity planning. The web videos are super engaging for my kiddos and they love to go back and watch them again and again. There are quiz like activities that help check for comprehension and understanding. So many pro's it's hard to name them all!!
