Fun Facts About Reindeer

My daughters are at the age that they believe in Santa Claus. For weeks they've been talking about snacks for Santa and his reindeer. They're a little too young for this SciShow Kids video about reindeer, but if you have kids who are in elementary school you might want to show them 4 Facts to Know About Reindeer. 

4 Facts to Know About Reindeer explains why reindeer are called caribou in North America. The lesson also teaches students how reindeer have adapted to find food and stay warm in cold weather. The video concludes with an explanation of why reindeer migrate.


Older kids and adults who want to learn a bit more about reindeer should watch this clip from BBC Earth. The video explains how reindeer stay warm in the coldest of conditions.

4 Fun Facts About Reindeer

Thanks in part to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer some children don't believe that reindeer (caribou) are real animals. SciShow Kids seeks to remedy that in their latest video 4 Facts to Know About Reindeer. Through the video kids can learn why reindeer are called caribou in North America. The lesson also teaches students how reindeer have adapted to find food and stay warm in cold weather. The video concludes with an explanation of why reindeer migrate.


To create a flipped lesson based on this video try using Vizia or EDPuzzle.

Learn About Reindeer With This Collection of Media

BBC Nature has a collection of video clips, images, and articles about reindeer (or caribou). In the collection you can learn about how caribou have adapted to their cold environments, their range, and how they differ between continents. You'll also be able to learn about how some caribou have been semi-domesticated and herded by humans.


Unfortunately, not all BBC media is available for viewing in all regions of the world.
