School Year Review - Months of the Year Song
This video is a song describing each month during the school year. Each month is accompanied by a relevant picture and the song tells about what happened each month. The chorus of the song mentions the four seasons. This song was used as an end of the year song for a classroom, so the items are somewhat school specific. (1:54)
2-D and 3-D Shapes in the Real World
Learn about shapes using real world examples. This video takes the learner on a tour of real world examples of 2D and 3D shapes.
No part of Ireland completely escaped the impact of the glaciers of the Ice Age. The glaciers transformed the contours of the island and left behind a landscape of craggy mountains, steep gorges, and vast networks of inland waterways. In this video segment from Nature, viewers learn about this part of Ireland's geological past. (01:13)
Antarctic Ice Movement
With more than 29 million cubic kilometers (7 million cubic miles) of ice and snow, the Antarctic Ice Sheet is so massive that its weight depresses the underlying crust by 900 meters (nearly 3,000 feet). New snow that collects on the ice sheet's surface causes the ice beneath it to spread out and move along the slope of the land. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, a team of glaciologists carves into one glacier on the East Sheet to monitor the nature and speed of its movement. Closed capti
Forming the Burren in Ireland
The weight and movement of glaciers of the Ice Age has shaped about one-third of the Earth's landmass. Glacial movement formed rolling hills, carved out valleys and created a rich variety of landforms. The Burren in Ireland is one of the finest examples of landscape shaped by glaciation. Learn more about the Burren in this brief video segment from Nature. Run time 0:40.
Learn About Glaciers
Learn about the three biggest areas with glaciers and learn about glacier sports. (07:12)
Investigating Greenland's Melting Glaciers
Scientists supported by environmental organisation Greenpeace find evidence that Greenland's glacier are melting faster than expected because of the influx of subtropic waters to the Arctic. (02:56)
Hubble Space Telescope - Chapter 9, Pt.1
These are a series of videos produced by the ESA for public distribution about the Hubble Space Telescope. This video is copyright-free material with some restrictions. This documentary is suitable for older elementary, middle school, and high school students. (6:48)
Cell Division In Lung Cells
Uses contrast microscopy to visual the process of cell division. Images in black and white with labeling and narration of what is occurring at each step. Grades 7-12. 58 sec.
The Stages of Mitosis
This is a computer-animated clip from Stages of Mitosis, a promotional piece, which begins with a fly-through of cells preparing to undergo mitosis (cell division).
Upon entering a cell we are introduced to various organelles of the inner cell and the key events involved in mitosis.
For an organism to grow, rebuild tissues, and reproduce, cells must divide. Every division requires replicating and then evenly dividing the cell's massive jumble of DNA. This video segment, adapted from the Interactive Secret of Life videodisc, follows the stages of mitosis, the systematic process that ensures that daughter cells formed when plant and animal cells divide get equal shares of DNA. Closed captioning included. (01:34)
The Animal Cell
The Structure of The Animal Cell is discussed in this video. The purpose of this video is to explain the parts of the Animal Cell and give a brief overview on their function. (02:47)
Solving Equations - Pre-Algebra
The instructor demonstrates how to solve one-step, two-step, and multi-step equations. Several examples are modeled gradually getting more complex with each. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.
The Golden X
Let's learn to find X in different equations and in some examples. Video is good for students are having a hard time understanding solving for an unknown.
The Algebra Slide Song and Dance
Students do a song and dance in a classroom about solving equations with addition and subtraction. It was created for an algebra class. (Run time 2:54)
These are some of the lyrics for the song:
Alright we gonna do the basic steps
You must isolate
From the rest
Of the equation
Lets subtract now first
So whats x equal?
Well you add 5
To both side
