Title: Amoeba Sisters
Url: https://www.amoebasisters.com
Creator: Peterson, Sarina
Rapini, Brianna
Publisher: Amoeba Sisters LLC
Description: Launched in 2013 by sisters Sarina Peterson (a self-taught cartoonist) and Brianna Rapini (a former biology teacher), the Amoeba Sisters is geared toward high school biology teachers looking to bring creativity to their science classrooms. Their platform provides several resources for educators, including the Amoeba Sisters YouTube channel. Linked on the Videos page (under Creations), this channel features a "series of short, free science videos that demystify science with humor, relevance, and a lot of comics to help students connect to the content." Most of these videos are short, usually under 10 minutes in length, so they are a perfect tool to introduce a new science topic or unit. On the Handouts and Resource Links page (found under Educators) is also a great place to browse. Topics are categorized alphabetically and links to a free video and free accompanying resource are provided. Instructors should note that most resource answer keys are only available via Teachers Pay Teachers (which will require a fee to access). Looking for additional guidance on how to incorporate these materials into a remote classroom? The "Distance Learning During COVID-19" post, first published on Pinky's EdTech Blog (under Educators) in March 2020 and updated in July 2020, offers insights.
