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)

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.

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)
