This is such a great thread! Thank you for all the recommendations. I also love to use brainpop. This is good sight for all content areas and ages: http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/highlights

Hi Adam, Have you tried to look at a component of Learning A-Z called Science A-Z? I use Reading A-Z and find lots of leveled readers with science topics and biographies about scientists. I haven't tried Science A-Z but maybe you could get a free trial for their product. https://www.sciencea-z.com/ Lori

That's a great resource Margaret! There is also a resource from "Mystery Science", called "Mystery Doug." There's a short video with an engaging question that Mystery Doug discusses. Here's the link: https://mysterydoug.com/ Lori

This is very informative and I feel more confident teaching these concepts. I would have given 5 stars if I could have opened the hands-on activities. A box opens but it is blank.
