Review

The latest in a series of test preparation DVDs for young people, Earth Science takes viewers on an amazing, computer-animated journey sure to capture the imagination as well as educate. Designed specifically to prepare viewers for standardized tests at grade five, Earth Science hosted by the cheerful Marko the Pencil, and covers topics ranging from how Earth's orbit causes the seasons to the water cycle, what causes weather, sedimentary rocks and fossils, topography and volcanoes, plate tectonics, energy and resources, and much more. A welcome addition to public and especially grade school libraries, and the perfect gift for any child with a blossoming interest in science. --James Cox, Midwest Book Review Child Bookwatch DVD Shelf

If you have a pre-teen child who is studying Earth Science in school you will positively be amazed at how helpful, reinforcing and supportive this DVD is. The same topics that they are spending their days learning in school: astronomy, geology, mineralogy, weather, soil erosion, etc. are all here with visually appealing, colorful animations. What made it more fun than school was a certain sense of fun that Rock 'N Learn sprinkles liberally throughout the DVD. Whether it is the fun characters or some silly banter it clearly worked. The use of rhyme and rhythm to memorize planet names and other scientific facts was not only viewed by parents as ingenious but exceptionally effective as well. --Review from The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval

This product is kid appealing and keeps children interested. The DVD is exceptionally well planned and is amazingly informative without the children losing interest. The DVD was so interesting, not only to the children, but to the parents as well. It was fun to sit and get involved with the DVD and test our knowledge of what we knew now and what we never knew before. It was helpful and easy to understand for children of all ages. --Reviewer from iParenting Media Awards Best Products

I teach 4th and 5th grade science to a group of urban and multicultural students. This is the first DVD I have seen that effectively addresses Earth Science content that will appeal to the age group and to English learners. The program has chapters on all of the key ES concepts and provides a quiz to test knowledge which includes some test taking tips.

The characters are funny and add songs to aid in understanding. They have Italian and New York accents (my background) so I can introduce my California kids to East Coast style.

After this review, I'm writing the company to request a similar program for 4th/5th Life Science. It must have been designed by middle school science teachers, because it hits the mark perfectly.

Three award-winning, computer-animated DVDs from Rock 'N Learn correlate to national Science Education standards, and are an excellent way to get young people interested in the basics of science. "Earth Science" (61 min., for grades 3-8) teaches how the earth's tilt causes the seasons, and about the water cycle, what causes weather, the different types of rocks and fossils, topography and volcanoes, plate tectonics, energy and resources, alternative energy and conservation, and much more. "Life Science" (59 min., for grades 3-8) covers plants and photosynthesis, the parts of a plant, the parts of a flower and pollination, characteristics of animal groups, ecosystems/food chains/food webs, genetic traits and adaptations, an introduction to human body systems and more. "Physical Science" (55 min., for grades 5 & up) covers lab safety, the scientific method, the parts of atoms, molecules and the states of matter, physical and chemical changes, mixtures versus pure substances, the definition of electricity, understanding magnetism, motion and gravity, and more. All three DVDs have a bonus section designed to help young viewers with multiple choice tests, and are a superb pick for public and grade school libraries, home schooling DVD collections, and just plain educational fun. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed using this as a review of our Earth science curriculum. The kids, age 8 and 10, liked it and it really helped them remember a few key points. This is one of our favorites out of all the R-n-L series.

So, this video is very helpful. My 3 year old knows his planets in order from this song! My 6 year old understands all about planets, rocks, etc. Downside...one of the characters has a REALLY annoying voice. I am from NY, but goodness, this is ridiculous. She can actually confuse things because of pronounciation! If you can get past the voices, this video is great.

We found the material is well covered but the style of presentation appears to be for a younger audience than Grade 5. We find The Magic School Bus materials are more engaging in their style of presentation and The Magic School Bus story books cover more details on each subject. However, this video covers some concepts The Magic School Bus series does not. This is a good addition to our educational library for our 4 year old.

My 4 year old loves the solar system, so he especially enjoyed the first part of the video featuring the planets. I personally find the voices of the characters annoying, but he doesn't seem to mind. He has requested to watch the video every day that we've rented it, and is learning about the water cycle, different kinds of rocks, volcanos and more. I can see us purchasing this video in the future.

I started buying these vids years ago. I think I may have just about all of their videos. My children love watching these vids. Very educational and can get more and more info watching over and over again. The Rock and Learn Series is so good for kids. You cant go wrong with any of their videos.

Covered almost all of the core curriculum for our science. It briefly went over each topic and gave them a catchy song to help remember it. Great review for end of year testing.
