The Busy World of Richard Scarry-Imagine That - Water Power
In this video, Huckle and Lowly Worm wonder where electricity comes from. Water power produces electricity at the dam. The video gives great visuals for the dam and how water power is produced. Dams are big walls that are built to hold the river back. This is a great teaching resource for the elementary classroom and/or special education students. This would work well in conjunction with a science unit on natural resources and energy (1:06).
Salinity Density Demonstration
Salinity affects the density of water. In this video, 9th grade teacher Rod Benson performs a demonstration on the study of ocean currents for his students using golf balls. The step by step narrative demonstration uses golf balls with fresh water and salty water.Explanations are included. This would also be a great demonstration while teaching density.
Fantastic Underwater Video of Ocean Life
With vibrant video clips captured by submarines, David Gallo takes us to some of Earth's darkest, most violent, toxic and beautiful habitats, the valleys and volcanic ridges of the oceans' depths, where life is bizarre, resilient and shockingly abundant. The video shows one species that can grow to be 150 feet long...and it has 'fishing lures'!

Conservation of Energy
Using the law of conservation of energy to see how potential energy is converted into kinetic energy. This video, which is suitable for high school students, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Instructor uses different colors for clarification.
Harmonic Motion The music and mathematics of nature. The restoring force and inertia of any stable mechanical system cause objects to execute simple harmonic motion, a phenomenon that repeats itself in perfect time.
