Quotes

This well-done video is colorful and full of animation. The mnemonic clues incorporated into the information will help trigger your student's memory when they try to recall the facts. Children who need a multisensory approach will definitely benefit from learning earth science this way with the information being taught is shown on the screen. For the auditory learner, there are a number of catchy phrases, songs, and rhythmic chants used throughout the video. It is definitely a fun way to learn about earth science and how to prepare for a standardized test. However, I would not limit it to just children who take standardized tests. Many homeschool students who are not required or do not take standardized tests would still benefit greatly from all the facts, tips, and memory tricks this video has to offer." -Heidi Miller-Ford, Eclectichomeschool.org

The most positive characteristic of this DVD is that it provides an entertaining way to learn basic concepts of Earth Science. It covers many topics and the practice tests included reinforce the subjects taught on the DVD as well. The DVD is visually pleasing, has great sound quality, is well organized and the animation adds to the appeal. The menu allows you to choose a subject or topic of study. There is information included on additional products, as well as a website to download earth science tests. The tests available on the web are available in GIF and PDF formats, which both open easily. There is also an answer sheet like the one shown for the practice tests on the DVD, as well as an answer key to check your answers. I am very impressed with the content of this DVD and think it is a valuable learning tool for students. -Reviewer from the iParenting Media Awards 2009 Best Product of 2009
