Educator Resources for Extinction

Where did the dinosaurs go? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby give you the lowdown on extinction. You’ll learn about what it means for something to go extinct, and you’ll find out about the idea of mass extinction. You’ll also see how changes in the environment sometimes cause certain species to go extinct. In particular, Tim and Moby take time to explain how human activities are causing some species to die out — and how these extinctions can interrupt the food chain and impact entire ecosystems. Remember: Extinct is forever!
