Teachers.Net rounded up the following education related videos posted on YouTube, hoping our readers find them interesting and helpful.

We also hope that watching the videos linked below will inspire the talented teachers and school administrators within the Teachers.Net community to upload THEIR material to YouTube so we can share it with other educators.

If you post or stumble upon a lesson, science experiment, classroom tour, craft how-to or other relevant material on YouTube, please submit the url (http://) and a brief description of the video's topic to the Teachers.Net Gazette so we can share it in a future issue.

Let's see YOU on YouTube!
