Animoto.com

An easy method to make online videos of your classwork. Explore the posted Sewing Project video of handsewn toys made in my eighth grade Skills for Life class. We posted this to the school website so that parents and students could enjoy the full range of completed projects. The students truly enjoy seeing their work on the Website. Educators are given a free, unlimited account - so go ahead, be creative!

American Culinary Federation Resources This site offers a collection of videos that could be used in your lessons.

I especially like the Chocolate Chip Cookie demonstration. It introduces the commercial kitchen to students with a very familiar recipe.

Check out the knife skills demonstrations, which I would think would be important in the high school level.



Ellen Henrietta Swallow Richards

A Video produced through Xtranormal.com, interviewing Ellen Richards, one of the founders of the Home Economics movement. Xtranormal offers an animated video maker. It is easy to create, using your own script, with one or two characters. The above link is through the educational section, which offers a safer format if using with students. Students could easily use this site for project creations. Please feel free to use this created video in your class when introducing "Home Economics" and "Family & Consumer Science".
