4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Educational Video!! May 4, 2007
I was skeptical when I rented this as I read the previous rating and didnt know what to expect. I am VERY glad I didn't rely on a poor rating to sway me from trying it out. This video is GREAT!!! I am a 4th grade teacher AND a parent of a 5th grader who is about to take the CA State Science Test. I sat with my son and previewed it before handing it off to his teacher and my fellow teachers at school. This video has neat graphics and cool rock music. The music they've come up with is outstanding!! This video is not meant for older adults to enjoy -- this is a video made to attract the attention of 5th graders, so this is geared toward that age group. The tunes are catchy and they've come up with a different song for each section of the video. They DO repeat what they say, but what teacher only says things ONE TIME?!?! They dont over-repeat it, they merely say it a couple times to let it sink in. My son was laughing and saying that his friends would laugh at the movie for some of its silliness, but as I caught him unwittingly singing along, I knew that THAT would be the reason he would remember the information presented. There are 7 sections: Solar Trip, Its Our Weather, Water Cycle, Anatomy Blues, Its Matter That Matters, Photosynthesis, and Life Science (4th grade bonus video). All in all, this is a great video to follow up on what has already been taught.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect STAR science test review!! May 4, 2010
By Lynch
I rented this from netflix to use as a review with my fifth graders before the STAR science test. The video is PERFECT!!! I couldn't ask for anything more. The music is fun, and what they are singing is even better. It is exactly the standards that fifth graders need to know. I do recommend waiting and showing this at the end of the year, right before the test once you have taught everything. It might not make sense for the kids before the unit because it is all still unfamiliar. I sat at the computer and paused several times throughout each song to review further. My students are extremely bright with super high test scores, and we loved it, so I'm really not sure why the negative reviews from other teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome DVD December 3, 2005
Being a teacher I found this DVD to be a great supplemental teaching tool to my students. Not only did they love it, they wanted me to keep playing it. It is awesome to play before a unit and then use it for review before the test. It follows the California State standards and I would recommend this educational DVD to 2nd-6th grade teachers. You'll love it and so will your students!!!!! 2 thumbs up!!

1.0 out of 5 stars This Made My Lame List November 28, 2005
I'm glad you took the time to make it to the bottom of this page to read my one star review. It looks like the company that produced this video got together a few friends to write positive reviews for this DVD. I'd really be surprised if you didn't agree with my one star assessment after seeing this miserable and amateur-looking video.

This is without a doubt one of the cheesiest productions I have ever had the displeasure to view.

As a 4th and 5th grade teacher, I rented this to show to my students to introduce science topics. The movie is nothing more than a PowerPoint show set to some of the most inane and awful music ever to persecute my ears.

My students hated it as well. Here are some of their comments:

"I can't understand what they are saying."
"They keep singing the same thing over and over."
"Can we do math now?"

Don't waste your time on this, I guarantee you'll hate it too.
