Did you know Castle Learning has video lessons in Science? There are currently 5 Science video lessons. Each set includes an informational video approximately 5-10 minutes in length and is linked to a series of questions. Our newest video, “Rare Earth Elements,” is geared towards Earth Science Students and asks the question: Why we need them, what exactly are they, and are they really rare?
Each video is available to students directly in the question. This gives students the opportunity to access the video while answering questions. They can also fast forward, rewind, and pause the video as they’re watching to take notes, or find a specific section when answering the questions.
All of the videos are aligned to NGSS and NYS Science Standards. Students will encounter multiple choice and constructed response questions. Teachers can also link additional questions to these assignments from their own repertoire or from the Castle Learning catalog of questions.
Here are the titles and courses associated with our other video lessons:
- Video #1a: The Myakka River (Elementary Science) – Students take a trip down the Myakka River and encounter several native species.
- Video #1b: The Myakka River (Intermediate Science) – Students take a trip down the Myakka River and encounter several native species. The questions for this set are more advanced than those found in the elementary science version of the lesson.
- Video #2: Why Do Some Homes Have Basements? (Earth Science) – Students learn why homes in New York State have basements and those in Florida do not.
- Video #3: Fossil Fuels (Earth Science) – Students learn why we are still hooked on fossil fuels and why we REALLY need to get off of them.
