Rock N Learn Science DVD Set Giveaway!

Great news!

A couple weeks ago, Rock ‘N Learn graciously sponsored a giveaway for their Learn to Read, 10 DVD program – and you all realized what a great value that was.

Well, this week Rock ‘N Learn is back, and I am excited to say they are offering another great giveaway prize!

 

This time, it’s a science dvd set bundle containing four of their science titles:

If you aren’t familiar, Rock ‘N Learn products are well recognized for their quality products and has won over 200 awards. I can tell you, the musical themes they use to assist students i learning and remembering ideas and concepts and catchy and really get under your skin. Sure, mama, you’ll have earworms for days… but you’ll remember the science (and so will your kids!).

I noted a few things in the science DVDs that struck me a bit differently than the Learn to Read set. First, these DVDs felt “shorter.” I don’t mean that the DVDs themselves are shorter so much as the information felt more bite-sized to me. Your child may be happy to put a DVD on and watch the entire thing for the story line, but for my part (as the mom/homeschooling parent), I also felt like – “Oh! I grab this chapter to illustrate or introduce a science concept.” Sometimes, we just need to hear the information a different way, and I really liked what I heard on these. 

I also enjoyed (really) seeing familiar characters come and go. Among others, there’s Marko (a talking pencil), who also has his own website (http://markothepencil.com/) AND – get this, he has worksheets for teh science DVDS (they’re listed as tests, but I think they’d work equally well as complete-as-you-watch worksheets). 

Want more details? Here are the topics covered in each DVD:

  • Earth Science
    • The Solar System
    • Weather & the Water Cycle
    • Geology (types of rocks)
    • Properties of Minerals
    • Volcanoes & Plate Tectonics
    • Weathering & Erosion
    • Alternative Energy
  • Human Body
    • Skeletal System
    • Nervous System
    • Muscular System
    • Circulatory System
    • Urinary System
    • Respiratory System
    • Digestive System
    • Five Senses
  • Physical Science
    • Lab Safety
    • Scientific Method
    • Atoms & Molecules
    • States of Matter
    • Physical & Chemical Changes (this is a particularly good section)
    • Electricity & Magnetism
    • Motion & Gravity
    • Light & Energy
  • Life Science
    • Photosynthesis
    • Parts of a Plant
    • Life Cycle of a Butterfly
    • Groups of Animals
    • Plant and Animal Cells
    • Food Chains & Food Webs
    • Genetic Traits & Adaptations

These DVDs are listed in both the elementary and middle school sections of Rock N Learn products. I’m not sure my middle schooler would be thrilled about watching the DVDs if I told him that was his assignment (he’s a good kid, but even he might be just too cool for that…). But the content is solid, so I think I might just “assign his brothers” to watch it… in the same room with him. Listen (see what I did there?), the catchy tunes on the discs will catch his attention, and I’m sure he’ll be part of the conversation as we talk about what we’ve watched.
