The Bill Nye Worksheets provide questions from the video series that follow Bill Nye the Science Guy as he plays a hyper-kinetic tall and slender scientist wearing a blue lab coat and a bow-tie. Students are able to watch as he combines the serious science of everyday things with fast-paced action and humor. The links above provide worksheets for many of the half-hour shows which begin with a cold open, where Nye introduces the episode's topic, which leads into an opening credit sequence, and featuring Nye in a computer animated scientific world, along with his head spinning, radio frequencies, and plastic toy dinosaurs flying. Research has shown that student viewers of the program made more observations and sophisticated classifications than non-viewers after watching the series, so go ahead have your students enjoy the retro episodes. Use the worksheets (PDF / DOC) to keep the students focused during the videos and be sure to have a good debrief session with the students after to addresses any misconceptions they may have.
