You Ought to Know January Blog Hop

You Ought to Know about: Study Jams!

If there's one website you need to know about, it's Study Jams. This website created by Scholastic, includes videos about Math and Science topics for 2nd grade and up. I use these quite often. Not only for myself, but for my students. It's great for review!
Math Topics include Numbers, Addition & Subtraction, Multiplication & Division, Fractions, Decimals & Percents, Algebra, Geometry, Measurement, Data Analysis, Probability, and Problem Solving.  

Science topics include Plants, Animals, the Human Body, Ecosystems, Landforms, Rocks, & Minerals, Weather & Climate, Solar System, Matter, Force & Motion, Energy & Light,  and Scientific Inquiry.

Each topic includes subtopics and all you have to do is click on the topic. Some topics are videos and some are just slideshows. For the videos, "the crew" discuss real life problems for each topic.

Each topic also include key words that you can click on and see the definition. Most topics also have a "Test Yourself" which has a few questions about the topic. Some even have Karaoke songs.

For some of the math topics, there a step by step guide to solve math problems.

This website is so useful, I find myself using it almost every day, especially for the science topics. It great for the students too. Best of all, this website is free!
