Sometimes it's difficult to keep kids attention on what WE want them to be exploring or thinking about. Here's a great site that teachers and parents can use…full of very creative efforts by teachers, kids and parents. Like YouTube, but narrowed to categories like Math, Reading, History, Writing and Science, TeacherTube offers an easy way to get explanations and information in a way that kids (and adults) can "get it".
As an example, click on the following link and check out a video describing how Math fits in our world…and why we need it. Enjoy: TeacherTube –There's a lot to think about!
