For this review, we were given a copy of our choice of two Go Science videos from the 6 volume series. I personally picked Go Science 4 and 5. I must say both videos were wonderful. The best part is that every single experiment episode ends with the message that when we learn about Science we learn a little more about God!
In Go Science Volume 4, my children learned about Chemistry, States of Matter and Life Science. The experiments covered were Chemical Luminescence, Exploding Bottles, Single Cell and Root Beer Float. The Root Beer Float experiment was their favorite on this particular video. They enjoyed the experiments on Volume 4 so much that they actually begged to watch Volume 5 a few days later.
In Go Science Volume 5, we learned about Air Flight. The experiments we watched in this video were the Egg in the Bottle, Bernoulli Effect, Can Crush, Air Cups and more. Their favorite was the Drum Crush which was a large repeat of the Can Crush also on the video. They were worried the drum would fall over and excited when it crushed itself under the air pressure.
As you can tell, I completely recommend these exciting and fun videos for homeschoolers and parents who just want to add a little more into their child’s education at home! Go Science Videos are available from Library & Educational Services for $47.95 for the full set of six videos or for $8.97 each! They are a great edition to any family DVD collection!
