Demonstrative video of the parts of flowers
This video is a fairly simple narration of the parts and function of a flower, together with suggestions for student activities. The video addresses the petals, pistil, stigma, style ovary, stamen, anther, filament, pollen, and sepal.
The Planet Venus
This video gives information about how long a day and year last on Venus, the structure of the planet, gas make up of the atmosphere, and the temperature at the surface of the planet. It then takes a closer look at the surface of the planet. There are awesome pictures and a lot of information that would start or continue a great discussion about this planet. The pictures and video is set to music, there are words to read and there is no voice. Video is of good quali
Inferences: Knowing Text Structure
Video explains what inference is and how students can use inference to be a better reader. Inferences can help you with cause and effect, chronological order, compare and contrast. Using inference skills is used to help figure out the progression of ideas and text structure of a narrative. Video gives a reading and student has to find which inference is used, it then explains why that is the answer. Good quality video for understanding inf
Inferences: Knowing text structure
Use inferencing skills to help figure out the progression of ideas and text structure of a narrative. Inference, cause and effect, chronological order, compare and contrast, and many other skills help a reader to better understand a story. This video is led by an educator, and the thought processes are explained clearly.
Toccata and Fugue in D minor by Bach
Bach's most famous organ piece, with a bar-graph score. This piece was composed between 1703 and 1707. It has been used in many movies and video games. This is the most famous of Bach's organ compositions. It is written in dorian mode with a free opening tocatta section followed by the fuge. The piece is written around the north German structure of composition. (8:34)
Cell Tour - Animation
This animation shows the basic components that make up the animal cell: Mitochondria, Lysosome, Rough ER, Smooth ER, Cytoskeleton, Ribosomes, Nucleus, Chromatin, Nucleoulus, Golgi apparatus - and gives a brief explanation - of the function of each. Run time 02:32.
Anatomy of a Muscle Cell
This instructor in this video, Sal Khan, discusses the structure of a muscle cell. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education.
The Basics of Biology: Cell Structure Overview
This is a brief, professionally-produced clip from the program Cells: The Structure of Life. This segment, using simple computer animation with 'live' microscopic images, explores the structure of the cell.
Nucleus, Cytoplasm, Membrane
What constitutes a cell? More than any other structures, it's the nucleus, cytoplasm, and membrane. Explore the form and function of these three critical cell parts in this video segment adapted from Carolina Biological Supply's An Introduction to the Living Cell. Closed captioning included. Run time 03:47.
The Great Mystery of the Castle in Florida (Part 2)
It all revolves around the mysteries of Coral Castle which is located in Homestead, Florida. It is a truly great structure because of the fact that it was built by one man named Mr. Edward Leedskalnin who in fact was a Latvian man. He was quite short and small as well. He was, in fact, 5 feet tall, weighed only 100 pounds, and he designed the entire structure by himself. This is a documentary all about this amazing creation of one man. Video is good quality and has information for st
Tissues of Skin and Intestine
Detailed slide views of human skin and intestinal tissues. Good review of the basic structure as seen through a microscope. Has background music, but this music is not needed and doesn't really go with the slide. Run time 03:50.
A student-made subordinate conjunction rap song. The lyics talk about conjunction function and conjunction words. The lyrics and accompanied with dance and music.
Number Of Bones In Human Body
Shows basic structure of the skeleton. Narration with simple skeletal diagram. Very brief overview. Grades 6-12. 37 min.
This video segment from NOVA: "The Sea Behind the Dunes" explores the often-overlooked ecosystem of the salt marsh, focusing on the plants that provide both a physical structure for the community and the building blocks for the detrital food chain that exists there. Closed captioning included. Run time 04:52.
The Genetic Code DNA contains the genetic information of an organism. It is essential to all living things. The structure and role of the nucleic acids, DNA and RNA, are investigated. DNA codes for the arrangement of amino acids in proteins. When the DNA has a mutation, it often results in a malfunctioning of proteins which leads to genetic diseases.

Anatomy of the Human Eye - The Ciliary body
This is a short, computer-animated narrated video (01:27) that offers information about the function and structure of the ciliary body of the human eye. Some of the narration is accompanied by English captions.
Guided Reading for Advanced Weeks
In this video you will see an actual guided reading group in progress from beginning to end. This example provides a very good picture of how a guided reading group should function, and what kinds of comprehension skills can be tackled in this setting.
This visualization adapted from the University of Massachusetts Medical School represents the process by which a dengue virus releases its genetic contents inside a host cell, allowing viral replication. The key players are proteins found on the viral surface called envelope proteins, which change their structure when the virus is endocytosed, or taken inside the cell. This structural change enables the viral membrane to fuse with the endosomal membrane, and the virus' RNA to enter the cytoplasm
Lecture lesson on subordinate clauses, also known as dependent clauses. This lesson shows that they function as if they were nouns, adverbs, or adjectives. Teacher on the clip shows examples of subordinate clauses on a whiteboard.
