The educational site built by the Ted Talks folks, Ted-Ed is a site where you can search for videos complete with lessons you can use alongside them. They are polished, detailed, and fun. You can also search by categories, like “Literature and Language.” You can use plain old Ted Talks in the classroom, and have the students create and deliver their own.

- 10-20 minutes of class time
How does it work?

- Teams race to match all the terms and definitions
- Incorrect answers reset the team's progress to zero
- The first team to match all 12 terms correctly in a row wins.
- At the end of a game, teams see what what they matched correctly and incorrectly

- Set up your computer to project your screen to the class
- Give each student a computer or tablet
- On your computer, go to the set you’d like your students to study
- Select the purple "Live" button in the study mode section. If you don't see the button, you may need to update your account settings so we know you're a teacher.
