Flashcards, on-screen helps, printables and more, here's a great
resource for Spanish language learners:
I don't remember ever even hearing of Newton's Apple until my son
found a book about the show at the library one day, but my husband
remembers watching this PBS science show as a child. It's a science
show, but not zany like Bill Nye or Beakman. And now it's available
online! They have a huge site filled with activity guides, experiment
pages, science project ideas, and best of all, over 300 streaming
video clips from the show. The show ran from 1983 to 1998, but all of
the videos I looked at seemed to be from later years - they don't look
too dated or old.
To get to the videos, just go to a category page and scroll through
the lesson titles. Some have just a video, others just a lesson
guide,while others have both. There's just one problem - for some
reason, the sound only works in one side on these videos. (And someone
else mentioned it, so I know that it's not just my computer.)
Now, here's an interesting site - FreeDocumentaries.org. They have

PBSand BBC films to popular documentaries like "Super Size Me",
"Bowling for Columbine" and that WalMart one that came out a couple of
Naturally, for the most part this is going to be for middle-school and
higher grades, and even then you'll probably want to preview many of
them before showing them to your children.
This is one of our more popular pages. I hope I included lots of
thought-provoking questions that will give you and your students lots
to think about and do as you read through this wonderful book!
There are also two different vocabulary word search-a-word puzzles on
the "Subjects" page of the site, as well.
Here's a great blog for helping you help your students with math:
