Hello, Besides the movie The Lorax, does anyone have any movie suggestions for students that are in elementary grade levels about different science topics? Does not need to be one topic in particular, just want to create a movie list with different movies for different topics!

5 Collection Review by Lauren Santiso
I think that all of the items in this collection are relevant to the concept of "changes in an organism's habitat can be either beneficial or harmful to the organism". I enjoyed the fact that she added Science Objects so that anyone who looks at these articles can click on the Science Object and learn more about the concept being analyzed. My favorite item that I read was "A Habitat Is A Home" because it allows the readers to understand what every organism needs to survive in their own habitat. It is meant for students so I believe that it would be a good book chapter to read to your classes. As a future educator, I believe that it is important to teach children about habitats and ecosystems so that they better understand what it is and why it is important for all organisms.

7 Resources

I put these resources together to show other teachers some articles that involve using safety in the classroom as well as why it is important to teach science to young children and how to teach a lesson on living and nonliving things.
