This Miniclip defines climate change and explains the greenhouse effect and the role of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. While it explores the consequences of climate change on our environment – such as rising sea levels, more frequent extreme weather, and damage to our ecosystems – it also suggests both big and little changes that we can make to protect our Earth.

In this video, we learn about forests, one of the world’s biggest biomes. We’ll start by discussing what a forest really is - because it’s a lot more than just trees! The forest is in many ways a key resource, above all for the climate, but also for the economy. The forest absorbs part of the carbon dioxide we release when we burn fossil fuels. We learn about the layers that make up a forest. We also take a closer look at the types of forest that exist and what plants and animals we find there. Why do leaves change color in the fall? We’ll learn that too. Show Less
There are almost eight billion people in the world, and one of them is you! But what if there were only 100 people, what would life on Earth look like? Let’s create a micro-world of our own, populated by only 100 people and find out. How many people would be from Asia? How many from North America? Would everyone in our micro-world have somewhere to live? Resources like money, how would it be distributed? In this film, we will use simple statistics to describe our world. Show Less

Rivers are a significant part of our natural landscape – they offer habitats for animals, support biodiversity, provide spiritual connections and much more. This Miniclip visits Australia’s three longest rivers – the Murray River, the Darling River, and the Murrumbidgee River. Students will discover geographical facts about each river, as well as how rivers are formed and why they are such an integral part of our natural world. Show Less
Some of Earth’s magnificent landforms are caused by erosion and weathering. But what is erosion and how does it change the Earth’s surface so drastically? This Miniclip explains the process of erosion including the various mechanisms such as water, wind, ice, and mass movement; defines sediment and deposition as part of this process; and explains how human influence has increased its prevalence through global warming and deforestation.
