With more and more great educational podcasts out there, it’s getting hard to choose which to use in the classroom. One thing that sets some podcasts apart are those that provide teacher’s guide and lesson plans for the classroom.

Here are some podcasts with teacher’s resources that you might want to check out:

The Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and InnovationPodcast Activity Guide (More Smithsonian podcasts are also available here.)

NPR’s Science Friday podcastKids’ Connection site with a wealth of resources including curriculum activities and standards correlation

Some podcasts, like the ESL Podcast, have more extensive learning guides that are available at additional cost. A sample is included here.

If you have lesson plans for using podcasts in the classroom that you’d like to share, let us know. We hope to post a collection of these in the future.
