Animals : CONTENTS
Voici une série de petis films d'animation très amusants
ayant pour thème 'What if animals were round ?'
qui permet de finir dans la joie et la bonne humeur une séquence sur CAN et CAN'T : http://englishnexon.wild-animals
Je montre ces clips un à un après avoir travaillé les 3 premières parties de mon document ici :
Créé par Cyril Dussuchaud (Ac. Limoges)
"Paper World is an image film for WWF Hungary where the values that WWF stands for
become visible metaphorically on the level of a micro-world."
- an animation
Simon's Cat 'TV Dinner'
"A hungry cat resorts to increasingly desperate measures
its owner's attention."
- with quizzes,
drag and drop activities,
videos , interactive stories...
- Watch the movie
- with The Meatrix: Interactive :
"Take an interactive tour through a factory farm and its surrounding area. Learn how antibiotics, pesticides, waste and more affect communities and family farms."
"You might not think of a dental procedure as dangerous, but when the operation takes place on lions, leopards and hyenas, the stakes are raised.
Watch as, over the course of a week, one of the most ambitious wild animal dental operations takes place on Kevin Richardson's sanctuary in South Africa."
"Kevin Richardson (previously at Neatorama) is called "the Lion Whisperer." He runs a sanctuary for big cats and other wild animals in South Africa.
Here he shows us a dental clinic for the animals. Veterinary dentist Dr. Loïc Legendre and anesthesiologist Dr. Adrian Tordiffe
put their lives on the line to help these magnificent beasts with their toothaches.
We start to see animals about three minutes into the video. Root canal patients include a hyena, a leopard, and an elderly lion.
Things get a little tense at one point."
Une activité créée par Isabelle Beaubreuil (Ac. Limoges) pour des élèves de sixièmes
à partir de la bande annonce du film d’animation The Secret Life of Pets:
"Je l’inclus dans ma séquence sur les animaux de compagnie et elle permet d’introduire du vocabulaire sur certaines activités."
"Scientists have conducted a lot of amazing studies and experiments with animals, many of which you've read about here at Neatorama.
But there are quite a few here that we've not heard of. Bears using computers to order food? Left-handed kangaroos? Bison that vote?
Learn about all these in the latest episode of the mental_floss List Show."
"Chimpanzees are human beings’ closest relatives. Using chimps for medical research has ended in the United States.
A chimp named Foxie once was used for experiments, but now spends her days playing other chimps and enjoying life.
But there are more than 650 other chimps who need new homes."
"Australians don't generally think of the kangaroo as a good pet, and many consider them to be pests and/or delicious when barbecued, depending on who you ask.
But hunky Australian and social media entertainer Jackson O'Doherty has a great rapport with kangaroos,
and his pet roo Damien follows him around everywhere like a bouncy little shadow.
It's hard to imagine hating kangaroos after watching this video, but their jerk side apparently doesn't come out until they're full grown and ready to fight."
"Representatives from 183 countries attended the Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species conference, known as CITES.
The delegates discussed ways to save hundreds of animals from disappearing permanently."
"Didga the Australian skateboarding cat and her owner Robert performed a total of 20 tricks in one minute to earn themselves a place
in the Guinness World Records 2017 book. Didga, who was adopted from a cat shelter, can even take on the challenge of a real skateboarding park.
The tricks include:
2. Give left paw
4. Give right paw
7. Lay down
8. Go onto one-side
10. Back to sit
12. Shuffle right
13. Shuffle left
14. Spin 360
15. Come (walk to me)
17. Step on the coin
18. Jump into hands
19. Go from hand, down to knee, then onto the skateboard
20. While the board is moving, jump over the bar and land back onto the board, a.k.a. "hippy-jump"
"A lot of babies have been born over the past year at Symbio Wildlife Park,
which means a lot of new mums.
The Sydney zoo decided to pay tribute to them on Mother’s Day,
with a video of mothers and their young."
""Rock Dog" is a movie about dogs. This funny movie is a cartoon about a Dad dog and his son who wants to be a rock musician.
Our English @ the Movies phrase we are talking about is "come to your senses." Come watch it and tell us what you think."
"Do you even realize how much work your cat does for you?"
- 18 April 2016
"Actor placed on a one-month good behaviour bond after pleading guilty
to providing a false immigration document to immigration officials."

"Now the future of the 5,500 or so wrinkled pachyderms in captivity is a major preoccupation for the government officials who oversee them."
Japanese Begins Controversial Whale Hunt - Text + Audio + Video - 2 December 2015
"Japan is allowed to hunt whales for scientific research.
Critics complain that while the Japanese say they are conducting research, they are really hunting whales to sell as meat.
Both Australia and New Zealand are against the whaling project."
Amazing Animals Make the World Records Book - Text + Audio + Video - 20 September 2015

Recently, the publishers announced the new record holders for 2016. Meet the amazing animals who entered the records books this year.
They include a tortoise, a dog, and a steer with huge horns."
"All animals communicate. But do they have language?
Michele Bishop details the four specific qualities we associate with language and investigates
whether or not certain animals utilize some or all of those qualities to communicate."

Changing Arctic Conditions Threaten Polar Bears - Text + Audio + Video - 30 July 2015
"Researchers, following the animals on the Arctic, discovered sea ice is melting faster than predicted, making it harder for polar bears to survive.

"Thousands of liters of oil have been released into the ocean and along the coast of central California.
Dead animals have been found along the coast of Central California almost every day for the past two weeks.
Workers are trying to rescue animals affected by the spill."
Use of Antibiotics in Farm Animals Is Expected to Grow - VIDEO
"As the world demands more meat, milk and eggs, experts worry that heavy use of the medicine in livestock
will cause a sharp increase in antibiotic-resistant infections."
"Cats aren't just great alarm clocks, they're also excellent sleeping masks.
This ad, produced for the Animal Foundation in Las Vegas, parodies those cheesy infomercial spots that present miracle solutions to everyday problems (see here for examples).
In this case, however, the gadget that solves all of your problems is a cat! Find out more at NewPetNow.com."
