Science Take - Short Science Videos from The New York Times

Thanks to Peter Vogel I recently learned about Science Take from The New York Times. Science Take is a new series of videos short (60-90 seconds) videos that quickly explain the unique aspects of various animals including dolphins, jaguars, and sharks. Science Take is part of the larger collection of science videos hosted on the science page on the The New York Times.

Applications for Education
These videos aren't long enough to be the basis for a full flipped-classroom lesson, but they could be useful as supplementary material in a lesson. If you're creating webpages to replace your science textbook, the Science Take videos could be good clips to include in those webpages.
