I recently attended an all day science training and got some terrific ideas. I wanted to share some of the free resources that are available to teachers.
Scholastic's StudyjamsThere is a lot to like about this free website for math and science! First of all, it is incredibly organized. There are topic pages, and on each topic page there is a list of the specific videos available. For example, I know we will be studying matter next. There is a whole page of Studyjams on matter. I might want to show the first video, Properties of Matter,
The second awesome thing about Studyjams is that each video has an interactive quiz! Teachers could show the quiz and have each student write down his or her answers, or if it is a review have the students work in teams. These are also great for your lab time.

Do you know of any other great free or almost free resources? Which ones are your favorite? Please let me know - I am always looking for some!
