TED-Ed needs your help! Where can we find the best videos?

I'm compiling a list of videos that I can put before the people who are creating lessons on the TED-Ed website (ed.ted.com). The videos that we suggest should be impeccable -- quality of video, content of video, and it's appropriateness for a high school classroom. They also have to be on YouTube.

Here's a few examples of amazing videos:

1) What Color Is A Mirror?

2) Cicadas and Exoskeletons: Bite Sci-zed
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hl2v9NUrEoI&list=UUzl8GEjZbjgtVj0ppupdBbg
3) Why is it Dark at Night?

4) High Diving Giraffes (we can contextualize any quality video)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9zCEMEDWX0
5) Slow Motion Flipping Cat Physics (I had to include a cat video)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtWbpyjJqrU&list=TLVO0LtH8QsrA
6) The Quakers, the Dutch, and the Ladies
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p47tZLJbdag&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PL8dPuuaLjXtMwmepBjTSG593eG7ObzO7s

Don't worry about suggesting TED Talks or TEDx Talks. We're already creating lessons around that content. I'm looking for amazing videos that people may not know about yet.

Thanks,
Jordan

      Aug 16 2013: Thank you, Jaen! We love the educators. I agree that this one hits home on several levels. When I first saw it, it blew my mind. Thanks or the compliments.

      Do you know of any other videos (outside of TED-Ed / TED.com) that we may be interested in suggesting for people to flip on the TED-Ed website?
