Decomposition: Grades 4-6
In this 45-minute broadcast, students will explore the computational thinking skill of decomposition - the breaking down of a problem into smaller parts to make the problem easier to solve. Students will also begin to explore the computational concepts of sequences and loops.
This film highlights the many ways in which engineers tackle problems big and small and explores how the principles of engineering can create a better future for all. Three female engineers are specifically profiled: one who specializes in creating structures that can better sustain earthquakes, ...
Things in Motion. Slides
This short video is a collection of slides that support the video, "Things in Motion."
Things in Motion
In this video, students will learn about force and the effects of force on objects. Through the use of examples, students will develop an understanding of force, friction, work, gravity, mass and acceleration.
Human Body Systems
In this video, human body systems are examined. Using computer and graphic animation, the structure and function of the lungs, the heart and the skeleton are explored. Photos of a sheep's organs and human skeleton help foster understanding of how the lungs exchange gas, how the heart pumps and ho...
Everyday Simple Machines. Slides
This video is a collection of 24 slides that support the video, Everyday Simple Machines (N704).
Everyday Simple Machines
This video examines simple machines. Six types of simple machines are explored. Examples demonstrate how simple machines make our lives easier: inclined planes, wedges, screws, wheels and axles and pulleys.
The Changing Phases of Matter. Slides
This video is a collection of 21 slides that support the video, The Changing Phases of Matter (N633).
The Changing Phases of Matter
In this video, students will examine how a substance, such as water, exists in different phases. The examples provided in the video illustrate how phase changes occur. Student will learn about states of matter, particles, solid, liquid, gas, plasma, melting, freezing, vaporization, boiling, evapo...
Properties of Matter, Part 2: Liquids, Solids, and Gases
Matter is everywhere and in everything. Appropriate examples and experiments make learning about matter easy and fun. Viewers learn that all matter has mass and takes up space, use the five senses to discover the properties of matter and see how matter changes form. A catchy tune helps reinforce ...
Properties of Matter, Part 1
This video takes viewers to the "matter kitchen" where they learn to use their senses to identify the properties of objects - size, weight, shape, colour, temperature. They also learn about some of the tools used to measure the properties of matter and that matter has mass, takes up space and can...
