Science, for our family, has meant more hands-on fun for everyone!
We haven't always been consistent in our science studies, although in the last couple of years, things have gone much better. It's not that we haven't thoroughly studied science concepts; it's just that we've not studied science in a systematic manner.
We received these fun and easy-to-use science DVDs to review in our family, and I just have to say that the experiments that were chosen to include with this are so much fun!
Brittany is our hands-on, fun science girl of the family, and she has always enjoyed science. I couldn't wait for her to take a look at these DVDs!
Here's a quick preview at some of the experiments that are on the two DVDs:
When we first started playing the first DVD, the girls immediately said, "It's the MathTutor guy!" And yes, this is Jason, who also sells Math Tutor DVDs.
The filming, editing, and work on this video was done well. This wasn't a lame movie made in someone's backyard. We were impressed with the quality of the content and the form.
We did notice that Jason tended to be repetitive at times, restating concepts numerous times in only slightly different ways, as if he was nervous about having the lesson be too short in length.
But other than that, we liked the videography, the science concepts that were introduced, and the ease of using this as part of a science program in our home.
(My girls are videography snobs, since one of them makes her own movies several times a week, so that fact that they liked the videography in this DVD series impressed me!)
