Fundy Tides - Scotts Bay Timelapse
Ever wonder what it was like living near the highest tides in the world - reaching a rise of up to 50 feet? This time lapse shot at Scots Bay, NS, in the Bay of Fundy shows twelve hours of tide in only 120 seconds. People have often found themselves facing peril when they did not keep an eye on the clock while beach combing. When the tide is rolling in at an average rate of 8 feet of depth per hour it can be a chore just staying ahead of it.

Pre-Columbian Era
The first Americans came from Asia, beginning as early as thirty thousand years ago, over a land bridge that formed at the Bering Strait during the Ice Age. The new immigrants were hunters and gatherers, and over a period of fifteen thousand years various groups spread over the American continents. By the time of the European “discovery” of the New World, there were perhaps as many as 100 million native Americans, the vast majority living in Central and South America.

Renewable Energy Report from the European Union
Most of the energy we use today to help power industry, vehicles, and

of organic origin, and dead organic matter, accumulating and forming
layers under the surface of the earth over millions of years, forms

EarthDay Videos: A Variety of Issues
This collection offers an excellent one on the history of Thoreau as well as vidoes on global warming, authors, getting active, EarthDay, and more. All of them are excellent in quality, but some are long and all of them need ancillary materials to make the messages more useful. Maps, a word wall and other aids are recommended. Walden was the best one I found for older students.  All videos together are 1 hour run time.
