From Atoms to Planets, Science Resources of All Shapes and Sizes
Our engaging videos and activities for Earth science, life science, physics, chemistry and technology and engineering will complement and enhance your instruction, whether you're introducing concepts, mastering key terms and ideas or reviewing before exams.
Read on for implementation suggestions and subject-wide lesson plans, and then experience a science video.
Use science videos and additional resources at any point during the lesson sequence: to introduce new content, go in depth with a subject or review at the end of the unit. It is great for bell work or Do Nows.
Plan Out the Scope of your Year
Flocabulary's science curriculum includes songs and videos for many branches of science and is aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards and state standards. At the beginning of the school year, review the videos to see how they match up with your sequential curriculum.
Connect Science with Current Events
The Week in Rap often includes science news. Preview The Week in Rap each Thursday night to see if it includes a story you'd like to share. You can also get more proactive with your science news: each week, ask students to find a news story related to science, and set aside time to share it with the class. Bonus points if it relates to a current topic you're studying!
End of Year Review
At the end of the school year, review for final exams or state tests by watching all the Flocabulary videos you covered throughout the year. The Fill in the Blanks exercise that accompanies each video is an especially good way to review key terms. You could have one long video day, or show a video or two for review each day at the end of the year.
