Lesson 2 – Website for Intro Lesson to Earth Science Class

1.) Post web-address for link: www.brainpop.com
2.)   This website connects to multiple videos on an array of topics, they are 2 to 5 minutes long and very informative, as well as entertaining.
3.)   I would show the video titled “Earth” to introduce a class on Earth science.   This video gives a look at planet Earth. It would provide a starting off point for further investigation into the subject. I feel that science topics can be very overwhelming for students. They tend to think it is harder then it is. I think by creating a common reference point using common language students can have a place to file new information.   These videos use visual and audio components and provide vocabulary to help keep students focused. It also uses humor to gain and maintain student interest.
