      So glad you like it, Emily. Wonder what your “own little page” was about!

  24. Sienna (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

    This was fun, I listened to some songs, watched videos, looked at photos and they were really cool

  25. JP (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

    boring

    • Jeanette (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

      Hi JP. I’m sorry you found this boring, but it makes me think you didn’t find the right resources. I take this as a personal challenge: name three things you’re interested in, and I’ll try to find resources that you won’t find boring! Go.

  26. Jaden (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

    That is fun and cool that we get to watch anything we want to on discovery education.

    • Jeanette (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

      Hi Jaden! So glad you enjoyed it. Remember, you can use your Discovery Education account anytime you have an internet connection: at the library, at home, some towns even have free wifi in certain areas so you could access your account on a park bench. You can always “watch anything you want to on Discovery Education” (except maybe at the dinner table, in class when you are participating in something else, and other places/times it’s not appropriate). ;-)

  27. Tristan (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

    It was a little hard for me to find good videos on blacksmiths

  28. Aleah (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

    I learned a lot from the videos I watched. I learned that making music is hard. I also learned that making music VIDEOS ARE HARD. And I also learned that famous people go through a lot of trouble through out the videos because they have to memorize the whole song. And the last thing df many things I learned is that famous people sometimes rent streets or a block so that their videos can be more realistic.

  29. Aleah (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

    It was kind Of hard to find the right videos but I found the perfect ones

    • Jeanette (Reply) on Friday 9, 2014

      So glad you found the right videos, Aleah. Any advice for other searchers? How did you finally find the videos that were right for you?
