Free online film resources for science teachers

The Museum of the Moving Image has just published the Sloan Science & Film Teacher’s Guide, a guide to 46 short science-related fiction films. Access to all films and the Teacher’s Guide is free. While many of the guides are for secondary students, there are some films that are appropriate for students in grades K-12 and a few that are appropriate for students in grade 5.  The guide is available here. The Museum is really proud of this project, and they are trying to get the guide into the hands of science teachers who might want to use these short films as a resource to engage their students.  Each film was supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation’s film program, and each filmmaker was paired with a science professor who ensured the accuracy of that part of the film. Subjects range from evolution to mathematics. Every film is correlated to New York and National Standards in the Sciences and the guide proposes discussion questions as well as links to further resources.
