In continuing my search for great free video websites, the newest launch by an old favorite, National Geographic and National Geographic for Kids, cannot be ignored.

National Geographic for Educators, still in its Beta form, was rolled out in April. It contains all the useful resources that we have come to expect from National Geographis, but it is formatted specifically for use in the classroom. There are links that allow users to view the site as teachers, informal educators, family, students, or kids. As a teacher, a variety of tools and resources are available, including those videos.

My favorite tool is the MapMaker Interactive. Once you create a map, it can be printed, emailed, shared through Twitter or Facebook, or linked into a blog or webpage. Lots to do on this site even if you aren't looking for videos!
