How Does Anesthesia Work? - A New TED-Ed Lesson

This morning TED-Ed released a new lesson that anyone who has ever had a significant surgery may be interested in watching. How Does Anesthesia Work? provides a five minute overview of the history of anesthesia and painkillers used during surgeries. The second half of the video explains the basics of the physiology of how anesthesia works. The lesson is appropriate for high school students taking an anatomy and physiology course.

How Does Anesthesia Work? is the twelfth video that I've added to my playlist of TED-Ed science videos. That playlist is embedded below.

Five Things You Might Not Know About Pearl Harbor

Today is the 74th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor which drew the United States into World War II. I have previously shared a small collection of resources for teaching and learning about the attack on Pearl Harbor. Larry Ferlazzo also has a good collection of resources that you should consult. One resource that neither of our lists includes is Five Things You Don't Know About Pearl Harbor. The video, produced by, offers five interesting facts about and related to the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

Consider using one of these five tools to incorporate this video into a flipped lesson about Pearl Harbor.
