Site of the Day: Periodic Videos

I've been looking into resources for a science resources for one of our kiddos and today's site of the day is from that. The Periodic Videos site (and Sixty Symbols for physics and Numberphile maths sister sites) is from the University of Nottingham and goes through every element on the periodic table and shares stories, demonstrations, and information about them. The folks in the videos are trained scientists that clearly need a "do not try this at home" clause.

Why do I think you should check these sites out? Well, because they are awesome and different. We all know how hard it can be to get students engaged and I think these could be a great add into science classes. Or how about using them to inspire students to create their own videos about whatever topic you are covering? Instead of a typical stand in front of class report, have them record and produce a video instead and see how the engagement goes up!

As always, check it out and let me know what you think!
