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. Show Less
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
This video identifies the different parts of the plant and describes their importance.
This video teaches students how to identify the male and female parts of a flower and explains how flowers grow fruits.
This video explains how animals adapt themselves to the changes in their environment.
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
This video explores how an electric torch works and its different components including the bulb, electric cells, switch, and outer body. Students will learn that when switched on, a metal strip moves beneath the switch and the bulb glows, giving light and heat. Show Less
In this video, students will learn about the two poles found in all magnets. They will discover these poles are the regions of strongest magnetism, unlike poles attract and like poles repel each other, and how a freely-suspended magnet always comes to rest in the north-south direction. Show Less
Why are earthquakes so dangerous and what can we do to minimise their impacts? In the final part of this series on earthquakes, students learn about the various dangers of earthquakes and their consequences, while also learning about the actions people can take in order to adapt to and live with these tectonic events. Show Less
What is the unexpected shaking of the earth’s surface that we call an earthquake? In the first part of this two-part series on earthquakes, students learn about the characteristics of earthquakes and the locations where they can be felt. The video also explains why and how earthquakes are formed at different plate boundaries due to the tectonic movements underneath them. Show Less
Given how dangerous volcanoes are, why do people still choose to live close to these deadly mountains? In the second instalment of a two-part series on volcanoes, this Miniclip will teach students about the various dangers of volcanoes and their consequences, as well as the different economic and social reasons that entice people to continue living near them. Show Less
What are volcanoes and how are they formed? In the first instalment of a two-part series on volcanoes, this Miniclip will teach students about the characteristics of these geological features and where they are found. The video also explains the different types of volcanoes – composite and shield – and how they are formed at different plate boundaries. Show Less
