One of the best way to use those clips from Discovery Streaming is to put them on iPods for students to watch. Here are some of our 4th graders watching segments on plants. The teacher had found about a dozen short clips which I loaded on the ipods using these directions from Hall Davidson. She simply asked the students to write down 3 new things that they learned as they watched. Such an easy assignment, and what kid wouldn’t want to use an iPod to do their work? They thought they were pretty cool!
We are so thankful to Best Buy for the grant that allowed us to purchase our iPods!
