Simple Science Videos

Proof that everything old is new again, today on Twitter I saw Simple Science Videos being Tweeted around. I first saw these videos three years ago. At that time there was a website that supported the content of the videos, but now that site seems to have gone offline. None-the-less 91 Simple Science Videos remain on Vimeo for your viewing enjoyment. The aim of each video is to give a clear explanation of science topics that elementary and middle school students can understand. A video about various types of rocks and their uses is embedded below.

Applications for Education
Designed primarily for elementary and middle school students, Simple Science's videos are entertaining and informative videos for introducing a new topic to your students. The collection of videos is also good for independent learning by students. These videos could be included in slide presentation that students may give as part of research assignment.
