Gravity Compilation: Crash Course Kids

Maybe you'd like to just hear about one topic for a while. We understand. So today, let's just watch some videos about Gravity. We'll learn about why we don't fly off into space, what mass has to do with it, how does air resistance work, and why gravity is different on the moon. In this compilation, Sabrina helps us understand some of these things.

Defining Gravity: Crash Course Kids #4.1

So, if gravity pulls everything down, then why don't things on the bottom of the Earth get pulled down into space? In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about gravity and explains that when we talk about gravity pulling things down, what we really mean is gravity is pulling things TOWARD the Earth. Really, it's all about attraction.

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We're super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!

[Clarification Statement: “Down” is a local description of the direction that points toward the center of the spherical Earth.] [Assessment Boundary: Assessment does not include mathematical representation of gravitational force.]

Gravity Compilation: Crash Course Kids

So, if gravity pulls everything down, then why dont things on the bottom of the Earth get pulled down into space? In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about gravity and explains.

Maybe youd like to just hear about one topic for a while. We understand. So today, lets just watch some videos about Gravity. Well learn about why we dont fly off into space, what mass.



In this My Universe documentaries, we are going to take you through a journey where you can learn everything about the gravity i.e., what is gravity, how does . In this My Universe documentaries,.

Newtonian Gravity: Crash Course Physics #8

I'm sure you've all heard about Isaac Newton and that apple that fell on his head and how that was a huge deal to our understanding of gravity. Well... let's talk about that. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Shini sits down to talk about the realities of the apple story and how Newtonian Gravity is more than a little important.

Matter Compilation: Crash Course Kids

Maybe you'd like to just hear about one topic for a while. We understand. So today, let's just watch some videos about Matter. What is matter? What are particles? And why is this important to know? Did you know that coal can turn into diamonds? Or that some materials don't behave the way we think they should? In this compilation, Sabrina helps us understand some of these things.

The Great Escape: Crash Course Kids #13.1

Do you know how many people have been to the moon? Only 12! Part of the reason it's so few is because of how difficult it is to escape Earth and get into space in the first place. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about gravity, escape velocity, and how gravity works between two objects.

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We're super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!

Danger! Falling Objects: Crash Course Kids #32.1

So, what would happen if you dropped a hammer and a feather at the same time, from the same height? Well, the hammer would hit the ground first, right? But why? You might think it's because the hammer is heavier, or has more mass than the feather. But it's actually not because of that at all. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina shows us that the rate at which things fall to Earth has to do with something called air resistance... oh, and we take a trip to the moon.

Dinosaur Pee?: Crash Course Kids #24.2

Today we continue our exploration of the Water Cycle by drinking some dinosaur pee. Yep! Well, it's a little less gross that it sounds. It turns out that all of the water on Earth is just constantly recycled in what we call a closed system. No water comes in and no water goes out. So that means that, at some point, it's possible the water we're drinking was once dinosaur pee... or tears...

Seasons and the Sun: Crash Course Kids 11.1

Updated with graphics fixed. Thanks for pointing that out!

Ever wonder why we have seasons? A lot of people think it's because the Earth gets further away from the sun in winter, and closer in the summer. But, it's actually more interesting than that. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks about how the Earth's tilt is responsible for Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We're super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!

Engineering Compilation: Crash Course Kids

Maybe you'd like to just hear about one topic for a while. We understand. Thus, we've created our Compilation Series. In this first (and longest) compilation video, we look at some of our videos about Engineering. Sabrina helps us to understand how engineers make things like cars, bridges, robots, and houses. And how we can become engineers, ourselves!

Everything Revolves Around You: Crash Course Kids #22.1

So, why doesn't the moon just crash into the Earth? And why doesn't the Earth crash into the Sun? What are orbits exactly and why do they happen? Well, it has to do with gravity and velocity. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina talks to us about how these things work and why we don't need to worry about the moon colliding with us.
