Study Jams is a product of Scholastic and is an inventive site for teaching science and math. Study Jams offers over 200 jams teaching topics and skills relevant in the elementary classroom.
Study Jams offers science jams in the form of videos to teach topics such as volcanoes, water cycle, photosynthesis, and the universe. The videos present vocabulary and facts on each topic. Study Jams also offers math jams in the form of videos covering topics such as multiplication, order of operations, and creating equations from word problems. Each jam offers a quiz so that students can test what they have learned.
Study Jams also offers karaoke songs on most topics. The songs present information in fun, upbeat tunes.
I learned about Study Jams from the blog Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero.
