My ever present test subjects are always thrilled to try out the latest new item I’ve received. My nephew Donald (age 8) is always ready to watch a DVD…not sure if that is good or bad. We settled in to watch Rock n Learn Life Science and Human Body.
Donald is the kind of kid who must watch every single second of a DVD. Educational videos are no exception. As we watched Life Science, learning about life cycles munching on our popcorn, Donald was mezmerized by the content. The best part? The quiz on the DVD. We would listen to the question, stop the DVD and discuss the content until he decided on the answer….with a bit of guidance. We especially loved the song to help students remember important facts.
Than the Human Body was up. I thought he liked the Life Science! He LOVED the Human Body. When he saw something he didn’t understand or wanted to watch again, we would go back to review. He kept saying, Pen, I didn’t know all of this about my body!
The Rock n Learn series is geared to grades 3-8 with a fun animated format engaging students throughout the 55 minutes. After we watched both DVDs back-to-back and completed the quizzes, Donald pulled the insert out of the DVD and proceeded to tell me every DVD that each of his teachers should have.
I’ll be shopping at Educents this week since they are offering a “deal” for the next 7 days.
