I would love to show students some quick (under 2 minutes) examples of different science examples like potential energy, life cycle of a butterfly, a beating heart, etc. Does anyone know of a website that might offer things like this? That is appropriate for elementary aged kids? Thanks for any help!!!

My favorite is brainpop. The kids love the quiz and games at the end of each lesson. I've used it as a whole group tool and individual learning tool.

4 Science Notebooks
This was a great article on the how and why of using science notebooks in the classroom. Coming up with good, thought provoking, open ended questions is the key to really making the science notebook an extremely useful tool. I also like the quick write idea. Fast, effective, and meaningful. Quick writes offer great insight into your students' learning.
