Animated Life: Pangea

This animated short video celebrates the early 20th-century German astronomer and atmospheric scientist Alfred Wegener, who first proposed that continents once formed a single landmass and had drifted apart.

Coral Bleaching

This animation zooms into a coral reef to explore the tiny animals that build reefs, the photosynthetic algae inside their cells, and the damaging process of coral bleaching.

Earth Systems Activity

This activity guides students through building a conceptual model of how carbon dioxide affects Earth’s climate.

Plate Tectonics

This animation provides an overview of some basic concepts from plate tectonics, a fundamental theory in earth science.

Finding the Crater

This activity supports concepts covered in the film The Day the Mesozoic Died. Students will analyze geological evidence from ten different sites around the world to predict the location of the asteroid impact that caused the mass extinction at the end of the Cretaceous Period.

The Principle of Isostasy

This video provides a demonstration of the principle of isostasy, the idea that the continental crust “floats” on the underlying mantle.
