This video looks at the serious issue of loss of biodiversity and species extinction.
This resource is intended to be a tool to encourage learners to think critically and creatively about climate change. The video has been produced in the form of a “News Flash” bulletin, narrated by a fun, fictional character named Daisy Mothbrain.
Daisy is a clumsy, inquisitive news reporter with a specialist skill. She has a unique connection with bees, who talk to her and share all their information. Daisy Mothbrain is confronted with a problem connected to the environmental and social impacts of the way humans are living. Through investigating and exploring the topic with Daisy, it is hoped learners will feel engaged and empowered to make meaningful changes in their lives.
The video is 4 minutes in length and can be watched straight through, or broken up by pausing at the two natural breaks in each video (signalled by a bee graphic and a short burst of music) to intersperse the session with other activities and/or discussion.
It connects with other activities in the Hive.
