Crash Course Kids: Why No Polar Pineapples - Episode 11.2

Plants are amazing. Really! Photosynthesis is an incredible thing. But it also means that some plants can’t live everywhere.

They need to get the right amount of sunlight for the right amount of time. In this episode of Crash Course Kids, Sabrina chats about how the tilt of the Earth makes for both prime and not-so-prime growing conditions for things like pineapples.

This first series is based on 5th grade science. We’re super excited and hope you enjoy Crash Course Kids!
