Videos for Classes/Interest

One of my middle school classes is reading Matilda (by Roald Dahl), and, as part of the story, there is a newt.

Since I was fairly sure that my students did not know what a newt is (it's a salamander, or, to be descriptive but inaccurate, a water lizard), I searched the internet for pics and a video.

I quickly found this very interesting (and very short) National Geographic video:

Also, I showed a few classes this "Boom Chicka Boom" song/video, for fun, and to see what would happen; interestingly, the boys in 2 classes got into it but, while the girls also liked it, they didn't dance and move:
