The Library: A (practically) unlimited source for Science materials
Marcy, our Crew Leader that hosts the weekly TOS Blog Cruises, has posted a list of upcoming topics/questions. I was really excited when I saw this question “What’s your favorite science resource?”
The first thought that went through my head was Schlessinger Media. I discovered educational DVD’s produced by Schlessinger media at my local library. I am sure that if you searched the web you could find the website and maybe even order some great DVD’s but I love just checking them out for free from my library.
I use these videos as supplements. I especially love the All About Series for grades K-4. My girls loved them. When the girls were younger, I would search the library for DVD’s to match the topics in the science curriculum.
My second thought for my favorite resource is even broader: the library. My library has “theme packs” and I would sit on the floor and flip through them looking for specific science related topics. I still browse the non-fiction shelves for books for Supergirl.
The library is a rich resource for materials to supplement science. It is the first place I go to to find books that we need to deeper explore a topic. It is the first place I check when I want to get science related DVD’s.
Now I feel the need to schedule a trip to my local library to see what new science dvd’s and science books I can find.
