For the earth and space section of my culminating assignment, I chose albedo. I chose this learning point because I found it to be the most enduring, and most important. I find albedo to be important to this unit because it’s a big part of climate change, and can help us to ‘fix’ it. The although information learned in this unit can be used in real-life for things other than climate change — it can also be used in simpler things, such as decorating outdoors (knowing what colours are suitable for all temperatures).


Above are the videos that I chose as my references for my key learning point. These videos were chosen because they could both be used to help someone understand the concept of albedo. These videos are both incredibly easy to understand. They are also both entertaining (even if one is way longer than the other). I would recommend these videos to anyone trying to understand this topic.
