Youtube is a fun and scary place. There are so many things there that it is hard to sift through the cat videos for something of substance. That is why I did some sifting for you! Here are 10 fun and educational Youtube channels and playlists perfect for any homeschool family or nerd!
Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego! Nothing like a great nerdy throw back! A user on Youtube (Bubblebear83) has put together a playlist!!!
TED talks to watch with kids is a playlist that TED has put together. Some great talks!
Doodling in Math Class by ViHart is one of my absolute favorites! We have been watching her since before she was working for Khan Academy. She is NerdPie’s favorite;).
Mathemusician Stuff is another great ViHart play list. I love music and math, need I say more?
Crash Course is a series done by the VlogBrothers. It is a ton of subjects and super entertaining. My kids and I really like it. It is probably considered high school level but all my kids watch most of them.
Crash Course Kids is just like Crash Course but aimed at elementary aged kids.
Space Time is done by PBS Digital Studios. It is really fun, interesting, and well done. And who doesn’t love space?
PBS Game/Show is obviously done by PBS. It is all about video games and that is inherently cool. It isn’t a review show but actually about gaming and video games. Like things like How old is Virtual Reality.
It’s Okay to be Smart is the last PBS show on my list. Joe Hanson hosts it and talks about science and life.
Life Noggin is another science in life channel. They talk about things like sleepwalking and science of super powers.
Bonus: This isn’t a playlist but a grouping. Remember Eureka? It was a math series on PBS back when I was a kid. It is cartoony and mathy and awesome! Check it out!
Yes, Youtube can be so educational! So check out some of these great lists! And what awesome educational faire do you watch on Youtube? Let me know in the comments.
