What do you like best?

Discovery Education offers a ton of science lesson plans, activities, and resources for elementary teachers. The content is standards-based and easy to integrate into any classroom. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Unfortunately the national science standards used don't always match our Mississippi state standards, but there are still plenty of resources that can be adapted. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Even if you don't use Discovery Ed as your main science curriculum, it provides a vast library of videos, images, activities, etc that can supplement any science framework. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Discovery Ed solves the problem of having to search the internet for science lesson plans since we don't use a science textbook at our school.

What do you like best?

Plenty of material on different material Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the videos are pretty dated. It doesn't seem as they should being from the 2000s but with it now 2018 a 2004 video is dated. Material wise and editing wise. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the product helped with:

It helps me teach science. Most recently it helped me teach about the moon and about senses and the brain. It's engaging and visual. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love that it matches the content to standards for me. It's easier to find resources. My kids really enjoy the videos. They keep them engaged. I also like that many of the videos have guides to go along with them. It's helpful to keep the kids engaged, and it gives me a source of questions to ask them. It makes my life as a teacher easier. It's helpful to have videos that my district won't block and that I know are safe for my students to view. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Many of the videos are noticeably more than 20 years old (my students comment on the age of the videos). For science, this is problematic, as some of the information has been outdated. For example, there was a video about bionic body parts that was extremely behind on current technology. I had to go to another source to show my students more accurate information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look into it. It's a great resources. I really liked the techbook when we had access to it, but it was expensive. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to engage students. Some concepts are much better taught via video than by an instructor. My students are able to rewatch the videos on their own outside of class or during class and are able to watch them if they are absent. It's easier to catch kids up when they've missed many days due to an illness. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Great resources for science instruction and student involvement. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I love the interactive labs and experiments that students can use. In those interactives they do a really good job graphing the student data based on the virtual experiment outcomes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes quality of videos is sub par and other videos need to be screened before watching for showing to a class. Board builders are also a little hard to utilize, especially for students. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I have not personally ever had to have assistance using this program but I know others in the district have had success in getting help and questions answered. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the product helped with:

I am an English teacher and needed a good lesson to teach the background of "Of Mice and Men". Discovery Education had several great lessons about the 1930's and the Dust Bowl. I was able to find a worksheet and a video that was high interest. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The best part of this program is the plethora of activities and resources. In a classroom where differentiated instruction is important because you have so many different learning styles, it is important to have a variety of materials that engage all students. Some of the materials available include worksheets, lesson plans, videos, and graphs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I would like to have other subjects available, such as English Language Arts. As of now, materials are offered for Math, Science, Technology, and Social Studies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the product helped with:

My cyber school is using Discovery Education Inc as an OER (open education resource) in various courses. The site provides an easy way to search for various content with many filters including grade level, type of content, and academic subject. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I love that Discovery Education Inc provides many different types of content- video, audio, picture, text, etc. The site is extremely user friendly. You can save content to your profile as well as organize any saved content into folders. This is extremely useful for teachers who teach multiple grade levels and/or subjects. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some content is a bit outdated, especially in the subjects of the arts and humanities. In addition, I am unsure when new content is added in my area. I wish that there was an option to receive a notification when new content is available in a specific subject or grade. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Discovery Education Inc for the STEM subjects as there is a lot of various content. For the Arts and Humanities, there is a good amount of content but some is very outdated. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Describe the project or task the product helped with:

I like using this website to supplement lessons - great videos to enhance what I'm teaching. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The videos are great. It's a nice go to when supplementing videos for lessons. I know that they will be school appropriate and geared for furthering education on the topic. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not a fan of the reading assignments. There aren't usually questions to go along, so I end up having to create those. It would be nice if there were more reading assignments with canned questions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Maybe ask teachers to help write up lesson plans/questions to go along with not only readings/passages but also videos so there is an accountability piece already worked into them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
