[H] Human Body DVD (Rock ‘N Learn)

9 Apr

(Part of this was first written for my Materials for Tweens class.)

In the Human Body DVD by Rock ‘N Learn, Marko the Pencil and Bailey the Butterfly guide Kevin and the viewers through all of the major systems of the human body, including the skeletal system, circulatory system, and digestive system, as well as the five senses. The content is correlated to National Science Education Standards and features the voices of popular anime voice actors Vic Mignogna, Luci Christian, and Kira Vincent. (This was especially amusing to me, considering my other job as an anime translator. :D)

This DVD covers a lot of material in depth, so it may help for children to watch it in parts in order to really grasp each concept. There are a lot of clear drawings and on-screen labels that show all the major parts of each system and explain how they work. There are bonus sections on how to take a multiple-choice standardized test (using practice questions based on the DVD) and a segment on the (new) food pyramid.

A test on the material covered in the DVD can be found online here.

This post is my Blogging from A to Z entry for the letter H.
