Explore your world through videos and interactives offered by The Lawrence Hall of Science. Videos feature a diverse array of topics ranging from features of a new penny to watching a spider build a web. Take part in activities including building a bridge from paper, hunting for bugs, and testing materials to clean up an oil spill. If your district blocks YouTube, then they may not be viewable. You could always view the videos at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as ClipGrab, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.
