Extinct and Endangered Species

What do dinosaurs and dodo birds have in common? They’re both extinct! When a species is extinct, none of its kind is alive today. When living things are close to being extinct, they are endangered. In this movie, you’ll learn about extinction and endangered species. Habitats like wetlands and rainforests are being destroyed, putting many plants and animals at risk. In this movie, you'll learn how people are trying to save endangered populations by creating reserves and by conserving natural resources. Some zoos help animals breed to increase their population, and some countries have laws to protect animals. Find out how you can protect endangered species!

The Environmental Cost of Oil Lesson Plan: How Oil Production Can Impact Oceans

In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades K-5, students use BrainPOP Jr. and/or BrainPOP resources to learn the environmental cost of oil, and that that the ocean is a complex ecosystem that is home to a variety of animals and plant life. Students will make and test predictions about how oil and pollutants react with water, and explain how pollutants such as oil significantly impact humans and the environment. Students then work in cooperative learning groups to create a project that demonstrates what they have learned. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards.  See more »
