Teachers don’t have to rely only on textbooks to teach their students about the effects of global warming – they can use live footage, too.

NBC, in partnership with HotChalk, has opened its video archives to teachers and students of all grades and subjects, to supplement textbook learning with primary source multimedia content.

Its digital curriculum resource has more than 5,000 video and print resources, giving teachers access to current events and historical archives. Science students can watch footage of the polar ice caps melting into the ocean. History students can witness the march on Washington, and see interviews with civil rights leaders.

Teachers also have free access to create their classes online by posting related lesson plans, homework assignments, and quizzes. Schools get a semester of free access to the video archives when they sign up through HotChalk, but require a subscription for continued use.
