National Geographic shows an advertisement at the beginning of the video. Educator can pause the video right after the advertisement to ensure that class only sees video or consider embedding the resource in a page without advertising.

High-quality visuals; though the voice of scientist is fairly quiet in comparison to narrator. The full-screen video quality is grainy and may not be suitable for classroom projection.
