This Miniclip defines climate change and explains the greenhouse effect and the role of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. While it explores the consequences of climate change on our environment – such as rising sea levels, more frequent extreme weather, and damage to our ecosystems – it also suggests both big and little changes that we can make to protect our Earth.

In this video, we learn about forests, one of the world’s biggest biomes. We’ll start by discussing what a forest really is - because it’s a lot more than just trees! The forest is in many ways a key resource, above all for the climate, but also for the economy. The forest absorbs part of the carbon dioxide we release when we burn fossil fuels. We learn about the layers that make up a forest. We also take a closer look at the types of forest that exist and what plants and animals we find there. Why do leaves change color in the fall? We’ll learn that too. Show Less
Students, along with Isaac and his cat Newton, will learn that friction is a contact force that can occur between two solids, a solid and liquid – also known as water resistance, and a solid and a gas – known as air resistance. They will also discover that friction can create heat and cause wear and tear in moving parts, but without it, life would be up in the air! Show Less
This short clip explains how humans breathe, and looks at the organs that make up the respiratory system. It also looks at the gases exchange that occurs as we breathe.
This video looks at the digestive system, explaining the different stages of the digestion process and the roles performed by different organs in the digestive system.
This video describes how the human reproduction occurs. It describes the sperm and egg, and how fertilisation of the egg occurs.
Ele learns about fungi and mushrooms, how they reproduce, and the different stages in the life cycle of a fungus.
This clip explains how the continents and oceans were formed as the Earth cooled after forming, and how continents moved into their current positions.
This short animated video looks at changes that occur to the musculoskeletal systems through out different life stages.
Ele and students will learn about the geological eras, and how life appeared and adapted throughout each of the geologic eras.
A short animated video on the structure of plants and the different roles played by their parts, with an emphasis on the role of flowers in the reproductive process of plants.
Some of Earth’s magnificent landforms are caused by erosion and weathering. But what is erosion and how does it change the Earth’s surface so drastically? This Miniclip explains the process of erosion including the various mechanisms such as water, wind, ice, and mass movement; defines sediment and deposition as part of this process; and explains how human influence has increased its prevalence through global warming and deforestation.

Heat waves, tropical cyclones, droughts, tornadoes, hailstorms, floods, and severe thunderstorms. These are all examples of extreme weather that shape our landscape. But what exactly are they and how do they happen? This Miniclip explores each of these extreme weather types and examines the natural and human influences that cause them including climate change, the Earth’s atmosphere, ocean currents and more.

Some of Earth’s magnificent landforms are caused by weathering and erosion. But what is weathering and how does it create magnificent structures on our planet? This Miniclip explains the process of weathering including the two main types: mechanical and chemical. Students will learn the different natural impacts on this process such as water, temperature change, wind, oxidation, and more. Show Less
Students read, sing and learn about various natural phenomena that constitute disasters (hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc.), the work of agencies around the world that step in to help those affected when these occur, and responsibility for protecting our environment. This curriculum-aligned song targets outcomes of curriculum documents and supports and integrates classroom learning across key subject areas. Show Less

Despite how solid our planet's crust might feel beneath our feet, did you know that it’s actually changing all the time? This programme explores the composition of our Earth, how the surface is divided into tectonic plates, and the history of the movement of the tectonic plates including the supercontinent Pangaea. It also explains the different types of plate boundaries that exist and the different landforms that can be found at each of them respectively. Show Less
