Instructional Science Videos for Kids
Video Teaching Guide
Science A-Z offers engaging and instructional science videos for kids that extend the core concepts of a unit, model real science in action, or serve as virtual field trips, helping students visualize ideas from Science A-Z instructional resources. The video collection provides great alternatives to visiting the far reaches of space, examining a new organism up close, using high-tech science equipment, or other activities that might not be available to students. Videos illustrate science concepts and practices, often showing STEM professionals in action. Discussion questions accompany each video, challenging students to think critically.
Why Use Science Videos
Multimedia brings technology into the classroom and engages students, especially visual and auditory learners, with science content that might not otherwise be accessible.
Science A-Z's science videos also provide dynamic illustrations of complex processes that text and static diagrams cannot.
How to Use Science Videos
Start with the Video Teaching Guide to learn about tips or activities for before, during, and after showing science videos to students.
Use the Video Discussion Questions that accompany every video to foster discussion and critical thinking about what students watched. The five discussion questions per video target various Depth of Knowledge and Bloom's taxonomy levels to ensure students not only comprehend what they learn, but also analyze and evaluate it.
