As you may know, PBS Learning Media is our digital media resource center that pools the best PBS shows, games and lessons in one place for you to use in the classroom. If you are doing a lesson on Black History month for example, you can use clips from the PBS documentary “Looking for Lincoln” to discuss the Emancipation Proclamation. If you want to get pre-schoolers excited about music, you can incorporate a clip on musical improvisations from the show “Dinosaur Train.” Those clips and many more are available in the system.
