TED Talks have been satiating the adult's brain for learning for over 20 years. I agree that a talk on quantum physics may not hold the attention of your grade 6 class, but if you find the right one, a 9 year old can get hooked. Here are 5 student approved TED talks that I've used in my own classrooms with students from grade 4 - grade 8. Topics include MAGIC, MUSIC, and MATH, along with ART and ANIMALS. Whether you're a grade 4, grade 8, or grade 12 teacher, these 5 will work.
