TED-Ed: 5 minute videos that will enrich your knowledge

Day 110 – I’m a strong believer in the fact that we are never too old to learn something new. There is always some new piece of information or perspective that we can discover. Last summer, I used TED-Ed videos to educate the kids on a variety of topics and subjects. We watched, “The last chief of the Comanches and the fall of an empire“, “The rise and fall of the Celtic warriors” and “The rise and fall of the Mongol Empire“, just to name a few.

I thought TED-Ed videos could be a great tool to learn more about environmental issues. The videos are short and nicely animated to grab and keep your attention. The information is valuable and can help people understand such topics as global warming, climate change and reduce, reuse, recycle.

Here are a few TED-Ed videos you should check out.

  1. What really happens to the plastic you throw away – Emma Bryce
  2. Can 100% renewable energy power the world? – Federico Rosei and Renzo Rosei
  3. Climate change: Earth’s giant game of Tetris – Joss Fong
  4. “What happened when we all stopped” narrated by Jane Goodall
  5. How long will human impacts last? – David Biello
  6. Is the weather actually becoming more extreme? – R. Saravanan
  7. Why the Arctic is climate change’s canary in the coal mine – William Chapman
  8. What happens if you cut down all of a city’s trees? – Stefan Al
