Got your oxygen mask handy? You’ll need it on your trip to the tippy-top of Mount Everest! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby take you on a journey to the highest mountain in the world. You’ll learn just how high it is as you explore the history of the peak, including how and when it formed and why it continues to grow even today. You’ll also find out why no one dared to climb the mountain until the 20th century. Discover who were the first to make it to the top, and how many people have reached the summit since then — as well as how many people have died trying. Keep your eye out for the Yeti!
