Teaching Tips | Science | Pedagogy |
- This video could be a short introduction/overview of the ways in which land masses and their charateristics affect climate.
About the Science
- NOAA animations from satellite data are used to demonstrate climate-influencing factors across the planet. Each factor is described separately.
- Passed initial science review - expert science review pending.
About the Pedagogy
- A background essay, teaching tips, and standards accompany resource.
- The video is very clear and well designed, but will need to be paused as students will have difficulty processing the information at the speed with which it is narrated.
- This video does not address the influences of landmasses on ocean circulation and the global transfer of heat from equator to poles.
