Everything You Need to Know About Planet Earth

When we wake up, eat breakfast, get ready for school or work, and head out the door, we may not be thinking about how unique our small, wet rock of a planet is. But the Earth is unique, and we’re always happy to happen upon videos that remind us of that. Learn some basics about it from this information-filled animation by Kurzgesagt.

Related reading: The Overview Effect. In the archives: more videos by Kurzgesagt and a few Earth-related vids: departing Earth, Earth as seen from ISS expeditions 28 and 29, and Pale Blue Dot, animated.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
