ARKive - Images of Life on Earth


Award winning ARKive has been called  the digital Noah’s Ark – and for good reason!

“ARKive is the world's centralised library of films and photographs of the world's endangered species. It has now profiled over 2,500 of the world's endangered species using over 3,000 movie clips and 18,000 photos - all freely available and downloadable for internal educational use at http://www.arkive.org/ "

To get started, all you have to do is 
search or explore, make your choice and enjoy. 

  
Today Sunshine Class watched a movie clip from Arkive.  We chose one called "Emperor penguin chicks in a crèche" and viewed it on the interactive whiteboard. It was spectacular.

ARKive is an excellent website and learning tool for all ages - I only wish I'd found it sooner!


Also visit  ARKive Education  "A free multi-media resource for teachers and educators"  that includes games and learning modules.
