Have You Tried TED ED? Here Are 6 Sample Videos

If you haven't taken a look at TED-Ed, you are missing a wonderful resource for your classes. With 11 subject categories, each video comes with multiple choice and short answer questions, resources about the video 's subject, information on the creator of the video and the ability to flip the lesson. Take the TED-Ed tour here.

1. DESIGN, TECHNOLOGY: How Inventions Change History (for better or worse)

2. HEALTH: How Breathing Works

3. MATHEMATICS: Logarithms, Explained

4. PSYCHOLOGY: Rethinking Thinking

5. SCIENCE: How Do Nerves Work?

 In August of 2011, I posted a mega-listing of resources for holidays from September to June. Since Chanukah, Kwanza and Christmas are right around the corner, I want to remind you to bookmark this post so you'll have it close by all school year.

Have I missed a day? Please let me know and I'll post resources for that day.
