Exploring Earth and Space Series

Specifically designed for the elementary science classroom, this 5-part series will help instructors teach difficult- to-understand concepts, differentiate instruction for diverse learners, and inspire the minds of students. Content is aligned to the curriculum and will help students prepare for the standardized science tests in their state. Each program includes a 15-minute interactive video with on-screen questions, vocabulary words, and a five-question video quiz, as well as a time saving teacher’s guide with preliminary and post assessments, video script, laboratory investigations, and vocabulary activities. Integrate media assets into lesson plans by showing a complete 15-minute video, short clips, or multiple animations and images. Custom multi-media formats include h.264 for iPods, Windows Media video, and DVD.

 “... this diverse collection of methods will feed the visual, auditory and kinesthetic regions of the brain... [it] will satisfy both teacher creativity and student needs. I would recommend this guide for third graders, it could be easily used through the middle school years, especially for fifth-grade review.”
