Instructional Ideas

  • Flip your classroom; instruct pupils to watch the video at home so they come to class prepared to apply their new-found knowledge 
  • Direct learners to take notes, write questions, then draft a summary 
  • Have the video ready to play in full-screen mode to avoid class members seeing inappropriate comments or suggested videos
Classroom Considerations

  • An ad pops up short after you start the video 
  • The video is the 17th resource in a series 18 designed to inform viewers on space and astronomy
Pros

  • Encourages pupils to explore space and astronomy further 
  • Reviews all planets prior to examining the gas giants
  • Provides labels and notes when describing specific objects
Cons

  • The host is a speedy talker; if individuals need extra support, try pausing, replaying, or enabling closed captioning
