Michael Rosen Performs 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt'
Michael Rosen performs 'We're Going On A Bear Hunt'. This video is part of the exhibition running at the Seven Stories Museum of the Children's Book, Newcastle. The words appear at the bottom of the screen as they are recited. Suitable for young learners, ages 4-7.
We're Going On A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen
In this video based on the book by Michael Rosen, a father and his four children--a toddler, a preschool boy and two older girls--go on the traditional bear hunt based on the old camp chant: "We're going to catch a big one. / What a beautiful day! / We're not scared. / Oh-oh! Grass! / Long, wavy grass. / We can't go over it. / We can't go under it. / Oh, no! / We've got to go through it!" The family skids down
Princess Academy Slide Show
This video clip was made for an English project. It is a slide show summarizing the book, the Princess Academy by Sharon Hale.
Review of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing
The actors from Children Theatre presentation of The Judy Blume's classic ,Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing talk about the book and scenes in the show.
Sideways Stories from Wayside School Book Review
Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar is a
strange little tale of a strange little school. Built 30 stories tall
by mistake, Wayside school started off a little different, but it just
got weirder from there. This is a review of the book.
The Nature of Water
This video is accompanied by text: "A key theme in biology is the relationship between structure and function. In order to appreciate the chemical and physical properties of water, we need to understand its molecular structure.
The chemical formula of water is H-2-O, meaning that each molecule of water contains two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Each hydrogen atom is connected to the oxygen atom with a covalent bond..."
Physical Properties of Water
This video is accompanied by text: "... focus on its physical properties. These include cohesion, adhesion, surface tension, and specific heat. Since the first three are closely related, we'll discuss them together.
Cohesion is the attractive force between similar molecules in the same phase. Water's hydrogen bonds are largely responsible for its cohesion. Cohesion can be thought of as the sum of all the hydrogen bonds in a collection of water molecules. Cohesion has important biological c
Water and Life: Summary
This video is accompanied by text: "Most of water's chemical and physical properties can be traced to its polar structure. This means it has an uneven distribution of electron density. One important implication of the polarity of water is its ability to dissolve ionic compounds and small polar molecules. Water molecules surround the ions or molecules as they dissociate from the crystal. In this example, the more positive end of the water molecule is oriented toward the negative chloride ion, and
Water The special chemical properties of water are explored, along with the need for its protection and conservation. Water is abundant on our planet, so we take it for granted, but not all water is usable. Water can easily become contaminated by human activity, so chemists are developing ways to clean our water supplies. Ice, water, and steam are used by chemists for a var

Structure of Water
This is a teacher-created, short animation that illustrates the structure of water. English captions appear to explain the images. (03:35) Music by Ben Hammer.
Cornstarch Walk on Water - Cool Science Experiment
This is a three minute video shows how kids can make a walk on water type experiment. For younger folk.
Science Project: How Salt Effects The Density of Water
This video provides a step-by-step demonstration of an experiment of the effects of salt on water density. Using the concepts of density and buoyant forces, the experiment shows what happens when you drop an egg in a cup of water and what happens after salt is added to the water. (6:29)
Water Density and Temperature
This is a short video that demonstrates the difference in density of cold water and warm water. It explains how the waters will mix or not mix according to their density and temperature. This is a good idea for a simple classroom experiment. (1:57)
The Phase Changes of Water Song
This teacher-made video shows a teacher singing about the phase changes of water while holding up the lyrics and diagrams of what he is singing about. The song is set to the tune of "Hey Soul Sister." Some key concepts include phase, state of matter, heat energy, particles, vibrating particles, latent heat of fusion, kinetic energy, melting, boiling point, vaporize, latent heat of vaporization, breaking bonds, and constant. (3:34)
Ancient Egyptian Mummification: Gods and Godesses
This video features an 11-year-old who is giving a presentation on the details of ancient Egyptian burial and mummification. Basic overviews of godesses and gods of the culture are also included.
Ancient Egyptian Embalmer's Apprentice
A BBC produced simulation in which the student becomes a mummy maker. The animations are basic. The "ick" factor of removing body parts is sure to appeal to middle school students.
How to Make a Mummy: Easy Clay Animation
A fun classroom annimated claymation video that shows how an Egyptian Mummy was made. Three minutes of good information in a "friendly" format. The video needs to be accompanied by a worksheet and, perhaps, timeline. Lots of learning possibilities here such as a map of Eqypt and study of human anatomy. Run time 03:29.
Fluids (Part 1)
What a fluid is. Difference between liquids and gasses (both fluids). This video, which is suitable for high school students, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Instructor uses different colors for clarification. Run time 09:46.
Fluids (Part 2)
Pressure and Pascal's Principal. This video, which is suitable for high school students, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Instructor uses different colors for clarification. Run time 10:12.
