We breathe it every second of our lives – but besides that, what purpose does air serve? Discover how air is a gas in this Miniclip, and the variety of purposes it serves for both humans and animals. It also looks at the use of wind as a renewable energy source, and the ways we can protect our air from becoming polluted. This Miniclip is perfect for exploring air as a natural resource, a state of matter, and a means of transport. Show Less
Students will learn about the air around us with this short clip, which explains the difference between pure and impure air, and describes wind and storms.

Animals inhabit every part of the globe from deep oceans to the freezing poles, scorching Equatorial deserts and lush rainforests. To survive and reproduce, they have adaptations that make them suited to their environment. This video game inspired, primary-aligned programme looks at the structural, behavioural and physiological adaptations of some fascinating animals including arctic foxes, echidnas, humpback whales and camels.

Not all of the science that the Walt Disney Imagineers do goes into the creation of wild rides. When designing Disney's Animal Kingdom and each animal's habitat, they had to take into consideration each animal's unique adaptations. Join Imagineer, Asa Kalama, as he meets the animal experts at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to take a look at some animal adaptations in action. Students will discover the two primary types of adaptations – behavioural and physical – that help animals survive, and they'll get to see, and listen to, a variety of animal communication types. Now, that's wild! Show Less
What is the difference between a carnivore, a herbivore, and a scavenger? What exactly is a food chain? And what happens to plants and animals once they die? Living things depend on each other and the environment to survive, and your students will discover how in this fascinating Miniclip. Learn about the roles of producers, consumers and decomposers; as well as the diets of various animals. Show Less
Warning: This programme features footage of animals eating prey. Please watch at your own discretion. In this programme, we learn where Africa is located and what kinds of animals live there. We take a closer look at many different kinds of animals and learn about their characteristics and how they are grouped. We meet the gecko lizard that licks its eyes because it can’t blink! We also learn about wildebeests, baboons, giraffes, and elephants, and discover who the “Big Five” are. What does a secretary bird look like? How high can a termite nest get? Learn all this and more in Animals in Africa! Show Less
Basic techniques in the science lab are important to master. This clip demonstrates how to safely light a Bunsen burner, how to correctly smell a test tube using wafting and how to gently mix the contents of a test tube. It also explains the importance of careful washing of glassware. Show Less
This video will help students learn about the buoyant force exerted by a liquid. The clip will define buoyant force and explain the reason for the occurrence of the buoyant force applied by a liquid on an object submerged in it.
Students read, sing and learn about functions of various human body systems such as the respiratory system, circulatory system, digestive system, skeletal system, and nervous system. Students will also learn about the need to make healthy lifestyle choices. This curriculum-aligned song targets outcomes of curriculum documents and supports and integrates classroom learning across key subject areas. Show Less
It’s almost unbelievable that a caterpillar is actually the same animal as a butterfly – but it’s true! Amaze your students with the captivating stages in the life cycle of a butterfly with this Miniclip. With a blend of animation and real life footage, your students will witness the metamorphosis from an egg through to the caterpillar and chrysalis phases, ending with a beautiful butterfly taking flight, only to repeat the cycle all over again.

Cells are the smallest unit of life. All living organisms are composed of one or millions of these tiny cells. In this video, students will explore the inside of a cell to discover what it´s made of and how it works. They will learn about the different cellular functions and how they bring life to all living things. Show Less
Objective: To learn about the changes in the states of matter. Learning outcomes - students will be able to: 1. Identify the three states of matter; 2. Understand how ice, water, and water vapour are formed.
Objective: To study the process of chromatography. Learning outcomes - students will be able to: 1. Illustrate the process of chromatography to separate components of dyes.
The classification system is the arrangement of living things, categorised by their different characteristics - an organised understanding of the natural world we live in. Recently this system has been further refined using studies of DNA. In this programme, we discuss how the classification system is organised and how scientific names are arrived at. The dichotomous keys used by biologists to classify specimens are demonstrated and the five major groups of living things are explained. An entertaining programme that explains how observed characteristics of living things are used to establish a classification system. Show Less
