How the Body Works - Ears

Hear ye, hear ye! Here is a video that comes with an article to read, an interactive quiz, hands-on activities, and worksheets, all about the ear! Chloe and the Nurb take viewers on a virtual tour of the ear, discussing its structure and how it collects sound. With colorful graphic animation, see the pinna/auricle, ear canal, wax, eardrum, ossicles, and cochlea. It closes with a song, accompanied by Chloe on the ukulele. Elementary ear learners will enjoy the humor, and you will enjoy having additional resources readily available.

Lesson Planet has taken the stress away of trying to come up with an interesting lesson that hooks the students. This is important for a rookie teacher.
