Streaming with Amazon Prime

18 Sep

A parent just let me in on the most amazing fact–if you have Amazon prime you can stream many shows and movies straight from your Amazon account.

In the short term, this is really going to get me bogged down with all the seasons of Downton Abbey that I’ve missed, but it’s also pretty good news for teachers.

Blue Planet

Nova Science

Ken Burns Documentaries

The list of educational videos that can be streamed isn’t huge…yet.  But the possibilities are exciting!  We watched a few minutes of Blue Planet, which tied in nicely with our environmental science unit.  Food chains, plankton, camouflage, it was all there.  I was surprised at how good the quality of streaming was.

The videos all have a high production value and are aimed at informing while engaging.  Comparing them to the 80’s-inspired singing-and-dancing-while-pollinating-flowers video that is included in my science kit, and I think I’ll be searching Amazon prime quite a bit in the future :).
