DE Techbook

I got a chance to preview UnitedStreaming's science resource called TechBook recently. How cool! I really love the way each area is organized and easy to follow. I checked out 5th grade matter and energy. I liked the way it is organized in tabs of engage, explore, explain, elaborate, evaluate. Each one of these tabs has videos about the topic. There are lesson ideas, hands on, and evaluation ideas. I am previewing this after my students have already left for the school year, so I didn't get to have anyone try it out. But I am sure that it would really get them interested in science.
