Rock 'N Learn Science DVDs
Reinforce important science concepts with these animated, entertaining, and dare I say, educational, videos from Rock ??N Learn Science. Younger children will learn new vocabulary, science concepts and facts, and older children (5th grade and up) will review important science information and be prepared for standardized testing.
Each DVD introduces us to a young man named Kevin, who along with his talking, pencil friend, Marko, will take you on wildly instructive and engaging journey. DVDs include bonus materials to prepare children for standardized test prep and a dedicated website containing printable tests for additional practice (along with a few topic-specific bonuses like edible cell models). The Earth Science DVD adventure gives children a bird's eye view of the solar system, the earth's orbit, seasons, water cycle, weathering, volcanoes and plate tectonics. Along the way, a cool "rock concert" is performed by: Sedimentary Sandstone, Igneous Granite, and Metamorphic Marble, which leads to mineral testing. The Human Body DVD provides clear explanations and realistic models that bring to life the skeletal, nervous, muscular, circulatory, urinary, respiratory and digestive systems along with the five senses. In the Life Science DVD, Kevin meets Bailey, a butterfly and life science expert. Through the journey together, Kevin learns about plants and photosynthesis; the parts of a plant; life cycle of a butterfly; animal groups and characteristics; animal and plant cells; food chains/webs; ecosystems; and genetic traits and adaptations. Physical Science DVD includes lab safety and how to get ready for lab experiments; the scientific method; atoms and their parts; molecules and states of matter; physical and chemical changes; mixtures and pure substances; electricity; magnetism; motion and gravity; light and different forms of energy- eat, electrical, sound, chemical, mechanical, and light.
