CD -  The classification of environmental resources and the forms that water takes as a resource.

Zoe Pyke's curator insight, August 27, 2013 5:16 AM

TED talks are a great way to obtain information in generally short bursts. This clip is only 3 1/2 minutes long so easily watchable by younger studnets without them losing interest.

 

It could be used as an engaging way to start a unit on water and water usage.

 

The clip uses language that is understanable and graphics that make the information clearer and easier to digest as well as being something interesting to watch.
