Here's some resources I think that a Science teacher, and a few for high-school teachers, shouldn't be without

-------------------

Crash Course YouTube Videos: https://www.youtube.com/user/crashcourse

 

This guy, John Green, is fantastic. I've used his videos to supplement my own lessons, either as introductory or summary pieces. He's also a great example to me of what teaching should be: fun, dynamic, and engaging

---------------------------------

Interactive Periodic Tables:  http://www.ptable.com/           and        http://elements.wlonk.com/ElementsTable.htm

 

I first came across these as a student teacher, and still use them today. Students can't/won't memorize abstract, non-applicable material. This shows how you can take traditionally 'boring' information, and relate it to things students can actually see, touch, and may have had experience with.

Shakesperian Insult Generator: http://www.pangloss.com/seidel/Shaker/

 

Teenagers talk a lot of trash; why not introduce Shakespeare thru burns? Don't expect them to start using these around school, but it's a great way to convey Shakespear's intelligence and wit.

People are Awesome: https://www.youtube.com/user/Hadoukentheband

 

I watch this, or something similar, almost daily. I also love to play these in the classroom as students are arriving. It gets you pumped and reminds you that the world, and life, is amazing.
