# 21 - Online Video

Have placed a cute little video for small people introducing the dewey decimal system at the bottom of the page...

I have been using online videos in class for some time, I also include lots of them in the resource links I provide to staff for their units. They are a fantastic way to bring the world into the classroom! One particular standout was for a teacher studying mealworms with her year 5 class. We found an amazing clip showing the hatching of the pupa and another of the emergence from the cocoon, both in fast-forward and magnified for the kids to see via the classroom data projector. How much better than a series of pictures in a text book?
