The Wild Classroom - Science Videos and Podcasts

The Wild Classroom is a website that I found through Untamed Science. The Wild Classroom features a collection of podcasts and videos for science classrooms. One aspect of The Wild Classroom that impressed me was the Biomes of the World Map. The Biomes of the World map allows students to explore the map and watch an informational video about each biome.

Here is a sample video about sharks from The Wild Classroom.


Applications for Education
The Wild Classroom could be a fun and informative place for students to explore biology concepts. The lesson plan section of The Wild Classroom is sparse right now, therefore The Wild Classroom is seeking contributions from teachers.
