Source: Between the Lions: "No One Told the Aardvark & Sea Horse"
This video segment from Between the Lions is a live action, non-fiction piece about what life would be like "if you were a boa constrictor." For boas, life starts with 60 brothers and sisters. After a month, boas go out on their own and swim in rainforest rivers and climb through trees. During the night, they eat animals. They have silky smooth skin and shed it when it gets too snug. After 30 years, boas are super snakes-- 20 feet long. This video places a strong but not explicit emphasis on the "s" sound. This video segment provides a resource for Text Comprehension and Phonological Awareness.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
