Here are 50 Ways to Integrate Discovery Education Streaming

Discovery Education Streaming Plus is a comprehensive digital service that motivates students to learn and helps teachers in every content area to transform their instruction. Containing thousands of standards-aligned resources, Streaming Plus provides you with the tools to teach your students to think critically about the content they use, see, and experience in their daily lives and to ask questions about the world around them.

There is so much to Discovery Education than just videos. If you teach science, I encourage you to check out Science of Everyday Life which focuses on teachers, families and students and each one of those areas branch off to another site of its own. The Teacher site includes videos and lesson plans. The Family site includes activities and resources. The Student site goes beyond activities with its Virtual Labs. Check it out!
