Day 59: Hunting the Elements

Screen shot 2013-11-18 at 8.44.51 AM

Students in IS II are really enjoying the NOVA production. “Hunting the Elements” with David Pogue. It is long (nearly 2 hours) so we watch it in 25-30 minute segments every few days. We were streaming it from the PBS website but our school’s broadband was having issues so we bought it via Amazon for $1.99. Best purchase ever. The video captures their attention, and aids in their understanding of basic bonding and chemical reactions. I follow David Pogue on Twitter (@Pogue ) and he has been gracious enough to respond to a few of my inquiries. When he is ready for a group of teachers to help him with any of his ideas or productions, I’m in!
