First of all, I have to confess that this DVD is not only my kids’ current favourite, it’s mine too! When we were first asked to review the Life Science DVD from Rock ‘N Learn, I was confident that my 9 year old son would enjoy it as he loves Science. Not only was I right, even my 5 year old daughter was fascinated by the DVD. My kids constantly come to me telling me what they had learnt from Marko the Pencil and his friend Bailey. One day, I may be hearing about what Photosynthesis (big word for a 5 year old!) is all about and the next, they will be explaining to me about plant cells. As a parent, that’s really amazing as the DVD is meant for “Grades 5 and Up” but my younger kids are able to enjoy it and best of all,  able to absorb the topics that are being taught.

The Life Science DVD is about an hour long and includes the following:

  •  Plants and Photosynthesis
  •  Parts of a Plant
  •  Life Cycle of a Butterfly
  •  Groups of Animals and Animal Characteristics
  •  Plant and Animal Cells
  •  Food Chains & Food Webs
  •  Ecosystems
  • Genetic Traits and Adaptations

multiplication_rap_videoAs  a parent, I find this DVD visually pleasing in terms of color and animation, which is very important to retain the attention of younger kids. The characters in the DVDs are fun and entertaining, while the music makes the content easier for the kids to remember. The practice tests are definitely a bonus as they reinforce the topics taught on the DVD. As for the opinions of my kids, they’re watching Life Science over and over and over again. Need I say more?
