Great for children who are autistic

(4 out of 5 stars)
"My son since he was 4 years old has loved these videos from Rock n Learn. My son is high functioning autistic. We have every single video there is and also the tapes. Some are better then others but most of them are OUTSTANDING.........."
Great for a younger audience.

"This is a great video for curious little minds and is presented well for a young audience. I think Grade 5 students would find the presentation style a little young. But because the concepts are well presented from simple to more complex concepts, younger children can easily benefit from the videos. We find The Magic School Bus videos and books a good companion to this video as The Magic School Bus videos are more engaging and the books cover the concepts in a lot more detail. However, this Rock 'n Learn video covers some concepts not covered by The Magic School Bus."
Not the worst I've seen

(2 out of 5 stars)
"This video has middle school science concepts but is very animated and almost Barney-like in its annoying characters. But since I had few choices in this area of science I bought it. Thought it was a multi-volume set on each topic, but it's ONE video with a few minutes dedicated to each topic. If you find others pass this by........"
An excellent way to get young people interested in the basic
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 03/19/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)
"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."
