Videos such as “Land: Earth’s Important Resource” may not seem very interesting, but the site packs key concepts into two-minute clips, providing kids with the information they need to participate in engaging activities such as “Developing Possible Solutions — Slippery Soil.” For high school and middle school kids, student modules make attempts to connect with students’ real lives. For example, “Taking the Energy Challenge” has kids compare the energy uses of two teenagers with realistic lifestyles. A few virtual labs are structured so students explore, plan, and experiment, mirroring NGSS scientific practices and encouraging students to think about designing their own investigations.

We the Economy project is to raise awareness and encourage discussion about the economy. The films are intended for high school-age kids, and the use of animation, music, dance, and comedy should increase interest in what is often considered to be dry and irrelevant material. There may be some confusion about the economic concepts addressed in various films that will need to be explained, and not all the films will appeal to everyone. Parents may also be concerned about the political views of some of the filmmakers.
