Youtube Finds!

I've had a bit of a leisurely day today and spent some time perusing pintrest and youtube. I am so excited about some of my finds so I needed to share! 

These videos are so fun and catchy! 

I actually found this song, "Meet the Elements", last year and showed this years class the video on Wednesday. Since then we've all been singing it! It gets stuck in my head every time I hear it and the same is true for the kids. Hopefully the info gets stuck in my students' their head too! 

This one is perfect for the introducing the Age of Exploration in Social Studies. 

Love this video, too! Great for talking about perspectives on the war. 

These videos are so fun and add an extra level of engagement to the lessons. If youtube is blocked at your school, check out keep vid. I wrote about it in this post. 

If you have a video that you love, please share!
