All About Waves (DVD)
All About Waves (DVD)
D054

Sound, light, heat and even earthquakes travel in waves. Waves are a transfer of energy, and understanding them allows us to better understand the world around us. Students learn about the common characteristics of waves through real-life examples and clearly illustrated graphics. A fun, hands-on activity will help students understand these basic concepts. This program is one of 11 volumes in the Physical Science for Children DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library for Children Collection. This title correlates to the National Science Education Standards for Physical Science -- properties of objects and materials, position and motion of objects and light, heat, electricity and magnetism. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online. 23 minutes. Grades K to 4.

All About Sound (DVD)
All About Sound (DVD)
D053

Sound, like light, travels in waves. Young students learn about the amazing journey of sound -- from the source that creates the sound to the mechanics of the ear that enable it to be heard. Children discover why sound needs a 'medium' to travel, why there is no sound in space and how certain animals are able to 'see' by using sound! A fun, hands-on activity and clearly illustrated diagrams help students learn these basic concepts.

All About Solids, Liquids & Gases (DVD)
All About Solids, Liquids & Gases (DVD)
D052

In All About Solids, Liquids and Gases, young students will be introduced to the three common forms of matter. They'll learn that all things are made up of tiny particles called atoms and that the movement of these particles determines the form that matter takes. In solids, the particles are packed tightly together and move very little. The particles in liquids are more spread out and move faster. In a gas, the particles are spread even farther apart and move even faster. Kids will also discover how matter can change from one form into another when energy is added or taken away. The terms melting point, freezing point and boiling point are introduced and clearly explained. Includes many real-life examples and colorful graphics, along with a fun, hands-on activity that demonstrates how different liquids evaporate at different rates. This program is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Physical Science: properties of objects and materials, position and motion of objects and light, heat, electricity and magnetism. The program is one of 11 volumes in the Physical Science for Children DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library for Children Collection. A Teacher's Guide is available online. 23 minutes. Grades K to 4.

All About Simple Machines (DVD)
All About Simple Machines (DVD)
D051

All kids know the word "work." But they probably don't understand that work happens whenever a force is used to move something -- whether it's lifting a heavy object or playing on a see-saw. All About Simple Machines introduces kids to the concepts of forces, work and how machines are used to make work easier. Six simple machines are presented using fun, real-life demonstrations and clear, colorful graphics: the lever, the wheel and axle, the pulley, the inclined plane, the screw and the wedge. Learn more about these simple wonders and see how they are the basis for most of the world's tools and machines. Includes a fun, hands-on activity that lets kids test these ideas themselves using an ordinary see-saw. This program is based on the concepts outlined in the National Science Education Standards for Physical Science: properties of objects and materials, position and motion of objects and light, heat, electricity and magnetism. This program is one of 11 volumes in the Physical Science for Children DVD Series in the Schlessinger Science Library. Part of the Schlessinger Science Library for Children Collection.

All About Properties of Matter (DVD)
All About Properties of Matter (DVD)
D050

Most children know how to describe an object -- by color, size and shape. Here they'll learn that all objects are made of matter and that all matter can be described with basic scientific properties -- mass, weight, volume and density. Each of these properties is described using fun, real-life examples. With clear illustrations and hands-on activities, students will gain a basic understanding of the properties of matter.

All About Motion & Balance (DVD)
All About Motion & Balance (DVD)
D049

Walking on a balance beam or riding a bike both require motion and balance. This program will reveal how unbalanced forces create motion, while balanced forces keep things still. Students also learn how concepts like velocity, acceleration and momentum fit into this puzzle. A unique hands-on activity combined with vivid imagery and graphics will clearly illustrate these concepts to students.

All About Magnets (DVD)
All About Magnets (DVD)
D048

Why does a magnet stick to the refrigerator, but not to the wooden cabinets? This question will be answered as viewers discover what makes something "magnetic." Students learn about positive and negative forces, the North and South Poles, and the basic concepts of why opposites attract. Children find out more about what magnets are used for and in which simple machines they are found. With a hands-on experiment and real-world examples, these concepts are more easily understood.

All About Forces & Gravity (DVD)
All About Forces & Gravity (DVD)
D046

When we try to move ourselves or other objects, a force is being created -- a push or a pull. Students learn about how forces are involved in everything we do and about the natural force that affects us every minute of every day. How does it help or hinder us in our everyday lives? With clear demonstrations and a fun, hands-on activity, these concepts are more easily understood.
