Explaining that major concepts in the earth sciences were developed in the 19th and 20th centuries, this program traces the history of the field. It discusses ice ages, plate tectonics, and the birth of ecology.Grades 9 to A

#10500/0635  CAMBRIDGE CORE SCIENCE: GeoBasics (8 Programs) DVD
As oil supplies dwindle, as catastrophic weather events multiply, as the ozone layer grows thinner, Earth needs geologists, geophysicists, environmentalists, and other researchers as never before! Introduce your students to Earth science - and inspire them to help save the world - with this eight-part series.

What sustains the existence of life on earth as it moves through space at about 67,000 mph while spinning at 1,000 miles an hour at the equator? Examines the chemical cycles that take place within the biosphere in which we live and explains the many complex and critical interactions involved. Grades 9 to A

#1056/0845  CLIMATE, WEATHER AND PEOPLE and THE CHANGING EARTH - DVD's everywhere! From hurricanes and ice storms to heat waves and cold snaps; the more time and energy put into studying the weather, the less we seem to understand it. More and more (young) people are showing academic interest in the power and unpredictability that defines this aspect of our environment. This video provides vocabulary, definitions, and explanations, both historical and current, to help. Grades 7 to A

#15305/0433  EARTH SCIENCE SUPERPACK (8 Programs)
What makes Earth capable of supporting life? How exactly does the planet function? This series addresses these questions by investigating Earth’s place in the universe, its formation as a planet, and its relationship with the sun. Systems thinking and conservation are touched upon as we explore Earth as an energetic, dynamic, and recycling planet. Each of the eight modules is a topic-based 26-minute video that contains the digital workbook including teacher’s guides, classroom notes, quizzes, games, and graphic organizers. 1. EARTH'S PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE 2. INVESTIGATING EARTH'S PAST 3. RESTLESS EARTH 4. MOUNTAINS, VOLCANOES, AND EARTHQUAKES 5. EARTH'S CHANGING SURFACE 6. ENERGETIC EARTH 7. ATMOSPHERE AND OCEANS 8. EARTH SYSTEMS Grades 6 to 8

This program is an effective balance of technique and application. This video delivers information in a logical sequence, and forms a functional foundation to approach any pruning job. The topics covered include: why and how plants respond to pruning; proper tool selection and use; why and when you should prune; and pruning for desired results. With beautiful and varied shot locations, see how to apply these pruning principles in ornamental trees, informal and formal hedges, roses, conifers, flowering shrubs and more.

#15050/0433  GEOLOGY SUPER PACK (6 Programs)
This set looks at the earth’s geologic past and introduces the basic principles of geology. It covers minerals, including intrusive and igneous rocks, plutons, and magma; looks at volcanism and erosion, discussing such topics as the causes of volcanic eruptions and the weathering of rock and soils; explores plate tectonics, considering the forces that build mountains and cause earthquakes; and examines hydrology, explaining how rivers, oceans, and glaciers interact with the lithosphere. Grades 8 to 12

#15057/2003  GEOMORPHOLOGY: Study of the Shape of the Earth
This program introduces and explores the forces that have shaped the earth, including wind, water, glaciers, volcanoes, temperature changes, gravity, and faulting.Grades 8 to A

#11597/0635  ONCE GOOD EARTH (THE): Understanding Soil DVD
A curiosity of life on this planet we call Earth is that virtually all living things are dependent on a few centimeters-thick layer of decomposed and decomposing matter also called earth(!) ... otherwise known as soil ... or dirt. How strange?! Watch this fascinating video and learn.

This program explores how tidal power is generated and how it works. Also illustrates how the tides are created, how watermills once used the tides to grind grain, and how modern power plants use turbines to turn this constant flow of water into electricity and discusses how tidal power plants can work without damming estuaries and rivers.Grades 4 to 9

*Winner! TELLY AWARD (Outstanding Educational Videos) This video covers the physical properties of soil texture, structure, water, slope, depth and color. Viewers learn how soil is formed as we explore the five soil forming factors of climate, organisms, parent materials, topography and time. Types of rocks and how they are formed are covered. Beautiful videography and relevant examples make this video a pleasure to watch as students learn about the properties of soil.

#15056/2003  RUNNING WATER: How It Erodes and Deposits
This DVD shows how running water changes the surface of the earth. It covers such topics as suspension, solution, load, rapids, potholes, meanders, braided streams, deltas, alluvial fans, waterfalls, and floodplains. The program also discusses characteristics of youthful, mature, and old streams.Grades 8 to A

#15420/1884  SCIENCE OF COMPOSTING SERIES (3 programs)
A comprehensive instruction to the science and ecology of composting as well as soil biology. Start with an overview of the many organisms which make up the soil environment. Explore the wide array of micro and macro-organisms which work to break down organic matter. Learn how to design, implement, and operate effective compost systems. End with a program loaded with information on the many organisms which make up the soils environment.

#15421/1884  SOIL BIOLOGY
This program is loaded with information on the many organisms which make up the soils environment. From easily visible earthworms to microscopic bacteria, discover valuable information on the roles and interactions of the soil's flora and fauna. See how soil biology relates to soil horizons, porosity, water holding capacity and other physical properties of soil.

Visit a wide range of farmers and entomology farm advisors who are implementing tactics that enhance a farm's biological diversity. See how sustainable agriculture is efficent in the use of natural resources, ecologically sound and economical. Explore the farm-estuary connection- see how farmers are reducing soil loss and improving waterways. Learn about sustainable systems, or loops in the natural world. Four 30 to 33 minute programs in the series: SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE FARMSCAPING ADVANCED TACTICS FOR ACHIEVING SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE FARM-ESTUARY CONNECTION SUSTAINABLE ENVIRONMENTS

What could the health of coral reefs possibly have to do with human life on land? What can be learned about planet earth by studying coral reefs and their inhabitants? The long life span of coral reefs has made them important places for scientific exploration and today much of that study deals with coral reef survival.Grades 4 to 9

This program examines the geologic processes that occur on coastlines where the ocean meets land and shows how erosional and depositional processes form such features as rugged coastlines, barrier islands, spits, tombolos, wave-cut terraces, sea stacks and beaches.Grades 9 to A

One of the harshest environments on earth exists at the place where the sea meets the rocky shore. This visually stunning program examines the wide variety of animal and plant life that survive these difficult conditions that are caused by pounding waves during the ebb and flow of the tides. Students will come to appreciate how these plants and animals have adapted to develop unique survival mechanisms that help them find food and escape predatorsGrades 4 to 9
