Grade 5 and up.
Twig has a comprehensive set of 3-minute videos, each combining rigorous research with stunning visuals to support inspirational science and math teaching in the classroom. The more than 1,000 videos offer spectacular footage from NASA, CBS, the BBC, and other sources, and all are original and purpose-made.
Created with teachers to ensure a good fit with science curriculums, Twig videos are rigorously researched by academics, catalogued by curriculum subject (biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science), and an excellent teacher resource for engaging students of all abilities at grade 5 and above. The videos are effective when delivered on a whiteboard or presentation station, or even reviewed on individual laptops or other personal computers. With the 1-Year Teacher Subscriptions, a teacher can deliver Twig as whole-class instruction and even access the site from home to prepare lessons.
A Twig Math subscription gives you access to a unique resource that helps students understand key mathematical concepts by showing how math is applied in the real world. Twig Math features 130 3-minute videos presenting exciting and modern examples of math in action with accompanying lesson plans and worksheets to support teaching and engages students who struggle to see “why math matters.”
Furnished with lesson plans for teachers, supporting materials, and quizzes for students of nearly all ages, Twig videos are an invaluable addition to the teaching mix.
