Dynamic Earth - Geography

25 Feb 2020

Dynamic Earth
 

To launch our new Geography curriculum, we are very excited that we will be welcoming Linnie Wharmby  on Thursday 27th February who will be bringing to school an inflatable interactive science globe for the children to get hands on and ignite their imaginations and inspire curiosity.

Blurb for Zula - While on a routine fossil-hunting expedition, the Zula Patrol turns up evidence that the villainous Deliria Delight has been travelling back in time to Earth’s prehistoric past to illegally dump her company’s toxic trash. The Zula Patrollers must find and catch her, before her actions cause catastrophic consequences. In the process, our heroes learn all about the formation and development of Earth, and the life forms who call it home.


Dynamic Earth explores the inner workings of Earth’s great life support system: the global climate. A cutting-edge production following a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere.
  • The relationship of Earth and the Sun. The Earth is close enough to the Sun to bask in its warmth, thanks to a series of natural defences, including its magnetic field.
  •  Life and the carbon cycle. Earth's climate control system depends on the ability of living organisms to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and store it long term.
  •  Plate tectonics and its role in the carbon cycle. Audiences will learn that CO2 emissions from human activities now outpace volcanoes 200 fold.
  •  Comparison with Venus. The story of our sister planet shows just how unique Earth is in its ability to regulate atmospheric CO2 and global temperatures.
  •  Perspective on climate change. The program fills in major gaps in the public's understanding of climate change, by placing it in a broader context of what shapes Earth's climate.
Audiences will ride along on swirling oceans and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into rolling volcanoes.
