A few weeks ago we shared 80+ completely free science activities that you can use to entertain your kiddos when you are stuck inside. But what about if you can't get to the library?
These videos will help you share information about science from the comforts of your living room couch!
Some of the videos on this list require a subscription to the service, like Disney+. Some of the videos are completely free to enjoy. All are available for streaming at the time of writing this post in April of 2020. If this has changed, please let us know by commenting below or by sending us an email using address above.
Before I share the list, we have not watched each and every one of these videos. Don't assume that because it's on this list, it's okay for your kiddos to watch. Please screen these before you share them with your students!
Let's get to the list...
The videos on this list are informational ones. There are lots of science experiment videos out there, too. And one day, we might create a list of those as well. But for now, the focus of this list was to give you a resource of videos to watch that contain scientific information for when you can't get books from the library.
To help you decide if the video is a good option for what you are studying, we have put designations on them for the subjects it covers. Here is the key code:
If there is a " * " before the title, this means that the providers of the videos deem them to be for older children and adults.
YouTube is a huge repository of information! You can search for the topic you want a video for and add "+kids" and you'll get lots of options. Or you can check out the following channels.
We hope that you enjoy these videos from the streaming services we have access to. If you know of other videos from these services, or others, please let us know in the comments below and we'll update the list!
