Love these DVD's!

"We have all of the Rock N Learn science DVD's and my kids love them all. The information is presented in a fun, yet accurate way that is easy for kids to process and remember. After watching the DVD's just a couple of times, the kids are able to recall almost all of the information. For example, after watching Earth Science three times, they were able to recall all of the planets (in order), the different types of rocks and the water cycle. These DVD's go beyond just helping the kids remember isolated facts - they are understanding how the information fits together. Out of all of the science videos, one (I can't remember which one...) had a statement that could be construed as evolutionary. We will definitely purchase any new science videos that Rock n Learn produces!"
An excellent way to get young people interested in the basic

"Three award-winning, computer-animated DVDs from Rock 'N Learn correlate to national Science Education standards, and are an excellent way to get young people interested in the basics of science. "Earth Science" (61 min., for grades 3-8) teaches how the earth's tilt causes the seasons, and about the water cycle, what causes weather, the different types of rocks and fossils, topography and volcanoes, plate tectonics, energy and resources, alternative energy and conservation, and much more. "Life Science" (59 min., for grades 3-8) covers plants and photosynthesis, the parts of a plant, the parts of a flower and pollination, characteristics of animal groups, ecosystems/food chains/food webs, genetic traits and adaptations, an introduction to human body systems and more. "Physical Science" (55 min., for grades 5 & up) covers lab safety, the scientific method, the parts of atoms, molecules and the states of matter, physical and chemical changes, mixtures versus pure substances, the definition of electricity, understanding magnetism, motion and gravity, and more. All three DVDs have a bonus section designed to help young viewers with multiple choice tests, and are a superb pick for public and grade school libraries, home schooling DVD collections, and just plain educational fun. Highly recommended."
