How to Embed a YouTube Video onto Your Blog

A lot of times we would learn a fun new educational song in class that the students loved and wanted to sing and share with their families at home.  I found that it was simple to add the video to our class blog so the kids could find it at home.  Here's how to do it:

Find the video on YouTube.  Below where the video is playing, click the "share" icon.

Next, click "embed" and copy the html code.

On your blog, open the page or post where you'd like the embed the video, and paste the code.  I have found (on Blogger, anyway) that even if you are still in "Compose" and not "HTML" mode (check the upperleft hand corner of your page while posting), it still converts to the embedded video.  Next click "publish".  You should be good to go!
