Quick Ideas for Using the Video:

  • Provide a variety of maps; road, topographical, weather etc. Give students several minutes to study their maps and then have them explain what their maps show and what part of the map gave them this information.


*Topical videos are filmed on location in the classroom/workspace/laboratory, in studio, or a combination of both to explain and/or demonstrate specific concepts, events, topics, or processes.

**The unique Video ID can be used to quickly locate a single video in the ET collection. This search function is designed to let teachers assign students to watch a specific video and have only that video appear as a search result. Just click on Search and choose “By Video ID.” Then type in the Video ID as it appears above. Be sure to include the dash.
