This is great, here's the link for edheads, have a look.

I have been back and screwed the fiducials into the patients skull and it was quite an eerie sensation. I do not have a squeemish stomach and the photos are great to look at, but screwing into an animations skull? That was eerie. Anyway...I am positive it will engage all students who grace the website with one animation or another.

The graphics are great and, as a science teacher to be, I am going to find a way to include at least one of these animations every how many different classes do I get?

This included in a lesson would have the entire class sitting enrapt and surley pique their interest in the sciences.

Not only do teachers and students appreciate our free activities, Edheads has been recognized by almost every major award on the Web for our excellent educational content! Quote taken from

There are also other animation sites, this link takes you to a web page that holds a science animation directory, great stuff.

Among the many animations available there will be one that the students can relate to , edheads is great as the student has control over what they see, to a degree, and it has real world focus which is shown to engage students. The interactivity relates to Oliver's framework and this along with the authenticity makes it compelling viewing and assists the students in constructing their knowledge around the topic.
