This brief video addresses several facts about Venus. The clip is suitable for older elementary, middle school, and high school students. (01:24)
Venus: Death of a Planet
"From the fires of a sun's birth... twin planets emerged. Venus... and Earth. Two roads diverged in our young solar system. Nature draped one world in the greens and blues of life.
While enveloping the other in acid clouds... high heat... and volcanic flows. Why did Venus take such a disastrous turn?"
NOTE: There is very brief (a second), frontal female nudity of the antique sculpture of Venus. Narrated with English captions. Excellent computer animation.(22:09)
What Is the Distance From Venus to the Sun?
What Is the Distance From Venus to the Sun? The distance from Venus to the sun is 108.2 million kilometers, but it can vary to about 107.5 million kilometers at times. Discover why Venus is much warmer than many people would think it is. This video is in lecture format. (01:39)
Physics & Electromagnetism : Surface Conditions on Neptune
The surface of Neptune isn't very solid, being a gas giant, and the surface temperature is -225 degrees Celsius. Learn about the atmosphere of Neptune, which is made of hydrogen, helium and methane, with help from science teacher, Steve Jones, on planetary science.
The power of glaciers is explored. Go inside a glacier to see its spectacular beauty and raw power. Video takes place in Norway. Scientists are starting to understand the power of ice. Scientist use hot water, spraying for two days, to get inside and see the inside. They go inside and see the ice, there is about 200 meters of ice around them, and if they would stay there for approximately 48 hours the ice would close in on them. The glacier is not really a sol
This amateur video footage is of a glacier cruise. It is not specified where exactly they are. However, since the beautiful glaciers often do not look real, this video gives a nice perspective because you can see the people on the boat filming. Much of the video is set to music. Run time 02:17.
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)
Second Grade Handwriting Writing at Home- Body Position, Pencil Grip, Etc.
Teacher-created live action video. In this video, a teacher shows the basics of handwriting using a student model. The teacher uses the student model to show how the body should look when working on handwriting and how to hold a pencil. Exercises for strengthening grip are shown. (2:08)
Practicing Handwriting Using Air Writing
Student/Teacher Created Video- A student demonstrates how to use air writing to practice how letters are formed BEFORE using pencil and paper. Sound is not clear. (3:06)
