I selected this for second grade but in fact this website (thekidsshouldseethis.com) is awesome for any kids.  They hold a huge library of learning videos for any subject area.  One of the many videos that caught my attention here is the “Zero Gravity 360 degree+ Weightless Water Experiments” in which they show experiments in a refitted reduced gravity aircraft.  They discuss weightlessness, training astronauts before spaceflight and more.

This is just one of the many cool videos to find here!

Oscar Cielos Staton began his teaching career in 1998 while continuing his passion for film production in Texas. He quickly developed an affinity for working with low socioeconomic Hispanic families. "The lives of my students," he says "very much mirror the life I once had as an immigrant in this country in a public elementary school. Actually, I tell them they are lucky because they have other students similar to them in the same classroom. My experience was that of a true minority in the classroom. Only one other student in my class spoke Spanish!" As a teacher, he established himself as someone in touch with the student experience. Nowadays Oscar continues his educational journey with the Teach Cow website and his podcast Teachers Talk Live, which brings together teachers from all over the world for talks on K-12 Education.
