A Great Website & Resource
The Internet contains a plethora of information, and we understand that it’s hard to find time to search for interesting and educational content that will encourage and challenge students to learn. Would it not be great if there was a site that compiled videos that were educational and interesting and adults and kids could enjoy together?
While our mission at The Walking Classroom is to get kids moving and learning, we do love a good interesting video and think they can be a great addition to a pre- or post-walk discussion. The Kid Should See This (TKSST) is a website full of smart, fun, and super cool videos that can be viewed in OST settings, the classroom, and at home with parents. The site boasts that their videos are “not made for kids, but perfect for them”. These videos will keep students engaged, spark discussions, and get young minds wondering about the endless possibilities of the wonderful world around them.
TKSST covers various subjects with a special focus on STEAM topics. Not only are these videos a perfect addition to many Walking Classroom podcasts, but we are certain you will find them useful and meaningful in many other parts of your day as well.
One of our favorite things about TKSST is that after your subscribe, you receive a weekly email that contains the five most-shared videos of that week. The educational and fun-filled videos will have you saying “the kid should see this”!
Examples of some videos that align with Walking Classroom podcasts:
Jane Goodall inspires kids at Berkeley’s Redwood Grove – #7 Conservation
Who’s on First – Abbott & Costello (1953) – #19 Who’s on First
Fossil hunting in unexplored dinosaur country – #99 Dr. Paul Brinkman, Paleontologist
