ESL Lesson for Kids - Greetings
ESL Kids lessons, greetings: Hello, Hi, Goodbye, Bye. The words appear on the screen as they are recited.
Fun Science Projects for Children : Ingredients for Flubber
Make science fun. What are the ingredients and materials needed to make flubber? Learn in this science video from science expert: Karen Weisman. This video gives the step by step instructions for making flubber, and even has subtitles so that if you can't understand the presenter you can still see the measurements that she is talking about.
Where Do You Get Your Energy
Cells extract energy from sugar to produce ATP, the molecular fuel that powers all life processes. This interactive activity adapted from the Exploratorium delves into the processes that enable cells to unlock the energy contained in the foods we consume. We often use the term "energy" as an informal shorthand for our ability to stay alert and complete tasks. In fact, the presence of energy-rich molecules and our cells' ability to obtain, process, and use this energy is critical to life.
Egg Osmosis Lab
Illustrates Osmosis with Eggs, Corn Syrup and Vinegar
In this video they discuss the history of refraction and do some interesting experiments. It also discusses index of refraction, Snell's Law, displacement, and shows the bending of light. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept. The video includes closed captioning. Run time 10:03.
Lasers are more than just science fiction. Learn about lasers, how they work and how they are classified in this short, computer-animated video. The following key concepts will be briefly covered: lasers, laser technology, atoms, energizing atoms, energy states, photons, mediums and medium types, how lasers focus photons, and laser classifications.
Does Light Travel in a Straight Line?
Light travels both in straight lines and through reflection,
which is a process in which light enters a prism and bends. Discover how light bends when going from one material to another with information from a science teacher in this video.
Why Is the Sky Blue?
In this "Ask an Astronomer" episode (03:05), Dr. Carolyn Brinkworth fills us in on what the color of the sky has to do with finding life on distant planets.
In this video from the Encyclopedia of Physics Demonstrations, learn about total internal reflection. A laser beam is aligned so that the light passes through a water tank and out through an opening. As water flows out of the opening, observe how the laser beam remains trapped in the water stream because of total internal reflection. See how the light follows the path of the water even when the flow changes. Run time 01:03.
Light and Color
In this video segment adapted from Shedding Light on Science, learn about the dispersion of light, the electromagnetic spectrum, and how sunlight contains a range of wavelengths (photons of differing energy). Isaac Newton investigated sunlight by shining it through a glass prism; after the prism refracted the light, he saw a spectrum of colors. He recognized that sunlight was made up of many colors, which could not be further separated when passed through a second prism. Drops of water in the ai
Adventures in Science - Science Of Light
Join a science professor as he explains to his class how light was used in an old-school special effects technique: Optical Compositing. This was how movies and TV shows of yesteryear did what green screen does today. (04:10)
Convection Causes Wind: Part II
This demonstration simulates warm air rising and cold air sinking. 9th grade science teacher, Rod Benson, does a step by step, narrative demonstration that includes explanations. Run time 02:05.
How to Make Foam Science Experiment
In this video kids can learn a fun and easy science experiment. Watch as they show you how to make foam. The experiment uses vinegar and baking soda and is an example of a chemical reaction. Run time 01:09.
Compound Subjects - MindBites
This video is an excerpt of a lesson about compound subjects. First, a sentence with a simple subject and predicate is provided. Then, an example of a sentence with a compound subject is shown. The narrator illustrates the sentences with her actions as well as explaining about the subject and predicate.
Prometheus and Pandora
This simple video is narrated and apparently illustrated by a young child. Prometheus was a Titan God who stole fire from Zeus and gave it to human mortals. Zeus punished him, by having him bound to a rock while a great bird ate his liver every day (only to have it grow back to be eaten again the next day). Zeus, still angry, then sent Pandora (the first woman), to further punish humans. Pandora had a box she was not supposed to open. She opens it anyway, and when she does a blac
Norse Mythology: The Creation of The World, Part 2 of 2
This episode discusses the conflicts the beings encountered with each other. Video is a series of pictures and illustrations with musical sound track, beautifully narrated by a male with an English accent. Part 2 of 2 (5:24)
Norse Mythology: The Apples of Idunn, Part 1 of 3 The Apples of Idunn, part 1 of 3. The Gods of Asgard owed their continued immortality to the Goddess of Idunn, who cultivated the orchard of the golden apples of eternal life. This is the story of how Idunn and the gold apples were once stolen from Asgard and what the consequences were. Still images of classic and contemporary illustrations and photographs are shown while narration is heard. Video is of good quality and app

"Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" Poem by Robert Frost
This is a live black-and-white video taken by a male adult walking in a light snowfall. There is a person walking in the snow; you can see part of the walker's coat, pants and shoes, and hear the wind blowing. Robert Frost's poem "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening" is read in the background. The voice is a little hard to hear and understand at times; the text is not shown. (1:05)
"The Sound Of The Trees" Poem by Robert Frost
This non-narrated slideshow presents photographs and drawings of trees in both color and black-and-white. The words to Robert Frost's poem "The Sound of the Trees" are shown in script, somewhat difficult to read, as piano music by David Nevue plays gently but clearly in the background. (2:50)
"The Fall of the House of Usher," short story by Edgar Allan Poe, abridged
Simply drawn colored illustrations are animated for the Poe's story, "The Fall of the House of Usher." abridged and animated by John Schnall, narrated by Robert Andrews, with sound effects and music Funded in part through a grant by Mobil Corporation (9:58 min.)
