TED-Ed Offers Lesson Plan Options

Teaching students STEM concepts in compelling ways can be challenging, especially for teachers who are not, themselves, technologically-savvy. These ready-made lesson plans can help. Are there topics here that could work in your classrooms?
There almost certainly are. A wide range of topics are offered, along with the ability to create your own, and even to involve students in the process. TED Talks have become very popular tools for adults interesting in learning about a wide range of topics or exploring various issues. Teachers can take advantage of this popularity by adopting TED-Ed Original talks for their classrooms. In addition to the video content, teachers are able to review and select, as appropriate, resources to help develop lesson plans for content delivery.
