I love using You Tube videos as a quick opening or introduction to a new unit in social studies. There is such a huge
choice of them and they are readily available. This is an example of one I used last spring showing the ravaging tsunami in Japan. Because I am a world culture teacher, these videos are a great tool to keep handy. In the future, I plan on putting some into flipcharts, as I have with Discovery Education videos, however, I am still learning how to create them too!
