     In addition to the featured videos, Science Trek offers a wealth of materials specifically for teachers. Each topic site features a section entitled “Educator Resources.” Click on “Teaching Resources” to find essential background content for teachers, suggested lesson plans, ideas for classroom activities, resources from PBS Learning Media, and links to interactives and tools suitable for whole-class and small-group instruction. Click on “Grade Level Standards” to see how each topic’s content aligns with ELA, Math, and Science Standards.

     On each topic page, the information contained in “Facts and Links” provides student-friendly content to supplement the videos, followed by links that direct students to additional learning sources. “Games” features online games related to the topic, and “Books” provides suggested titles for your classroom library or for books to recommend to students. “Glossary” contains science vocabulary for each topic.

     You may wish to view our 360° immersive videos, explore the options there, and find out more about how to utilize 360° immersive videos in your classroom.

     We want you, the teacher, to be able to use Science Trek to enrich your classroom instruction and to inspire your students to love science. If you have ideas or suggestions to make our videos and/or website better, please send me an email
