How Can You Fight Racism at School? | Above the Noise

Let's start with what we know: racist bullying and institutional racism are real problems in schools. But the situation isn't hopeless. Myles talks to high school students taking action against racism at their school. They have some suggestions for how to help schools be more anti-racist and supportive of all students. But we also want to hear from you. What changes do you think would help fight racism at school?

The Amazing Life of Sand | Deep Look

There's a story in every grain of sand: tales of life and death, fire and water. If you scooped up a handful of sand from every beach, you'd have a history of the world sifting through your fingers. From mountain boulders to the shells of tiny ocean creatures, follow the journey that sand takes through thousands of years across entire continents to wind up stuck between your toes.

Measuring Up To Dinosaurs | Dinosaur Train

In this Dinosaur Train video clip, children will learn to compare the height and size of the dinosaurs. Tiny and Buddy observe the differences between big and small creatures.

Managing Worries with Cognitive Self-Control: Module 2 Video | COMPASS for Courage

A cornerstone of reducing and managing anxiety is being able to manage your thoughts, what we call "cognitions." The strategy that we use and what we recommend is cognitive self-control. Addressing the cognitions is quite important in children because these are the thoughts that they use to stay away from the things that make them afraid or worried.
