Day 13: The Kid Should See This

The Kid Should See This website [LINK]
I came across this website 100% by accident and boy am I excited!!! This is a curated website of random and AWESOME videos! The author of the site explains it like this:
The Kid Should See This connects busy teachers and parents to a growing library of smart, short, & super-cool, “not-made-for-kids, but perfect for them” videos that can be watched in the classroom or together at home. Enjoy 8-12 new vids each week, and search 4,000+ videos in the archives, curated by me, Rion Nakaya, with help from my 8 & 10 year olds.
To really understand today's share - please visit the site. There are endless ways to incorporate into your class. Give students the title of the video and let them predict the answer - or try to figure out what the video is going to show ... let them browse & find one that is interesting to them and let them investigate that topic further ... it might just spark them into making their own videos! [Hey! My Day 1 share could be perfect for this - Adobe Spark for Edu.] 

Here are some videos I've got to highlight for you:
  • How does a cruciverbalist create crossword puzzles? [LINK]
  • An accidental toy inventor’s shapeshifting designs [LINK]
  • How can bananas make music? [LINK]
  • How to make a flipbook [LINK]
  • Revealing the true scale of the universe with VFX [LINK]
..... and SO many more!!!
