Death – it’s an inevitable part of life - but the more you know about it, the less scary it might seem. In this BrainPOP UK movie, Tim and Moby tell you why death can be so hard to deal with, what happens to the body when we die, and the various changes that a dead organism goes through - like cooling and rigor mortis. In this educational, animated movie you’ll also find out about the process of decomposition, and learn which environmental conditions can slow it down. Plus, you’ll get some advice on who to talk to if you’re dealing with the tough reality of death. It’s not the most uplifting subject in the world, but you’ll be glad you learned more about it.
