Science Illustrated: A Great Resource for the Classroom!



I NEVER want to see this look in my class!!

And I am sure that you do not either.  I am constantly on the look out for tidbits of new and/or interesting science news to use in my classroom.  My students look forward to "Hey guys, did you hear about "blah blah blah" on the news?"  Or,  "Hey guys, look at this cool video I found!"

This does not distract from the objectives of the day, and it only takes just a few minutes.  But the pay-off is huge in terms of student interest in my class.

One of my favorite sites for information is Science Illustrated online.  The news is current, fun, exciting, and most importantly....not too lengthy!!  I love that there is a wide range of areas to choose from:  Science, Nature, Technology, Space, Culture, and Medicine.

You will find a wide range of articles, glorious and interesting photographs and short video clips.

Have Fun Teaching!!

  1. I, like you, HATE seeing students with that bored look on their face. I am in total agreement that if you take just a few minutes to acknowledge them as actual people with feelings and interests (perhaps by showing them a cool clip or photo you were talking about), it does WONDERS for their attitudes! Thanks for the heads-up about Science Illustrated; I'm going to go check it out right now. These may be too young for your kiddos, but have you heard of Wonderopolis and Whyzz? They might be good alternatives if nothing on Science Illustrated works out for you for a day or something. Anyway, thanks for sharing!
