Free Educational Videos for K-12 Students

Most of our videos have been imported by people who want to use them with kids, not by the creators of the videos. We take a hard-nosed attitude toward quality. Four and five stars should be reserved for really excellent quality. Three stars isn't bad. Two is often watchable and shouldn't be ruled out. Unusually helpful and well produced. Very helpful but not among the very best; adequately produced, at least. Reasonably helpful, perhaps a bit amateurish in production or has some other problem; there is nothing wrong with a 3-star rating for amateur work!

Minimally helpful; not completely worthless or inappropriate; you can see how it might be useful to some people. Not at all helpful, not educational, poorest quality, etc.; you can't see it being useful to anyone.

Protest Violence with Painting (Art) The Activity Over the past 20 years, Sri Lanka has been the site of more suicide bombings than anywhere else in the world. To fight against the tendency for society to become desensitized by such violence, a group of local artists paint a colorful mural at each bombing site to serve as a memorial.

Have students read the brief narrative and watch the slide show at Fighting Terror With Paint Brushes. Ask students to consider these questions. What is the key message of the art of "road painters"?
