This video by Ecosia discusses the differences between conventional versus regenerative farming and how regenerative farming helps rehabilitate soil, maintain ecosystems, and fight climate change.
The video is presented in Spanish, but subtitles in a number of different languages are available.
There is a link to this video in English in the description, with captions for students that may need assistance while learning a new language.
This video highlights the importance of healthy farming techniques for ecological and climate benefits.
Students should be proficient in the Spanish language to watch the Spanish version, or should be paired with a more proficient peer to view the video.
Students should be well versed in certain science vocabulary terms such as ecology, climate change, and biodiversity.
Students can complete a graphic organizer or play a roll and chat game (students roll a die and, depending on the number on the die, answer a question about the video) to demonstrate their understanding of the video.
For world languages classes, students could have discussions about the video in pairs or answer written questions about the video in Spanish.
