Planet Earth - Education Edition - DVD.  Grade Levels 3-12.  10 Hours and 12 Minutes.

 

Excite students' curiosity about the world around them by being the first educator to add the must-have PLANET EARTH Education Edition with Public Performance Rights to your school or library.

Teacher's guides and ancillary materials for three targeted grade bands (3-5, 6-8, and 9-12) connect essential concepts to topics in science, social studies, and the humanities,
promoting critical thinking and developing a cross-curricular framework for instruction.

Journey from the
rain forests of Borneo to the peaks of the Himalayas to uncover the beauty and mystery of life on our planet. More than five years in the making, the series presents never-seen-before animal behaviors, startling views of locations captured by cameras for the first time, and an unprecedented look at Earth's creatures from biological and ecological perspectives.

Supplementary programs Saving Species, Into the Wilderness, and
Living Together interweave key arguments from leading environmental commentators about what the future may hold for the world's most threatened plants, animals, and ecosystems.

The Ultimate Guide to the Human Body - DVD. Grade Levels 6-12. 55 minutes.

When illness strikes, how does the body react to protect itself? Segments cover
basic physiology, the job of the immune system, and a treatment for cancer that channels the body's own resistance.

HUMAN BODY WORKS: Demonstrates how numerous
parts of the body allow it to move, think, heal, and feel.

FLU FIGHTERS: Goes
inside the human body to see how it fights a flu virus.

KEEPING CANCER AT BAY: Follows a patient battling melanoma to find out how
cancer cells grow, and chronicles a revolutionary course of treatment that uses the body's natural immune response to counter the disease.

Review:

The human body is a
miracle machine of evolution: simple yet supple, the body is strong where it must be strong, such as the skull and joints, yet light and flexible in other areas, such as skin and muscles. Indeed, this strong yet flexible blueprint inspired engineer Gustave Eiffel when he designed the famed Eiffel Tower. That's one of many "I didn't know that!" facts revealed in this bold, splashy introduction to the engineering wonders of the human body, aimed squarely at secondary school students, in which boxing, roller-blading, and space flight are used to illustrate the body's capacity to endure extremes. Divided into two manageable sections, with questions and suggestions for future study projects, the other topics covered on the tape include cells as nature's building blocks, an image of the brain as giant switchboard, and the all important role of the senses in enriching our daily life--functions which, ultimately, come together to produce memories and emotions, making us fully human. Although the video occasionally strays off point, it's mostly an effective and reasonably priced introduction.
