Teaching Science to Others Via Video
Submitted by Angela in Indiana
2nd and 5th Grades, Homeschool
This is new for us so we have only finished one such demonstration thus far, but it was so much fun!
What we do is we have the children dive as deep as they desire into whatever science subject we are working on. Their mission is to teach a segment of what they learned to a future class via video. (They love Bill Nye the Science Guy.) Before they tape anything, they have to create an outline and any visual aids they wish to use. It is amazing to see what they come up with and even though the girls are working on different subjects in different grades, they always end up working together on the skits or "special effects".
Eventually I would love to get a family website up and going and use these videos to keep our family up to date on what the children are doing in school.
Webmaster note: Cool! If you get those videos up on a family website, let us know and we'll add a link to it here! Can't wait to see them! :)
