TOS Crew: Library and Educational Services

I was very excited to have the opportunity to review for Library and Educational Services (LES for short).  LES is a wholesale supplier of wholesome, educational books, DVDs, CDs, and more. It doesn't get much better than that! 

LES gave us the opportunity to review 2 DVD's of our choice from the Go Science Video Series that they sell.  These were our options:

Volume 1 - Motion: Discovering the Laws of Gravity and Motion
Volume 6 - Water, Space, and the Solar System

It was not easy choosing from this series, they all looked really neat!  But we settled on Volume 4 and Volume 6.

Volume 4 - Chemistry, States of Matter, and Life Sciences seemed to be a good choice considering the children were glued to the television.  They had those really focused faces, you know the kind you can way your hand in front of and they don't even realize what you are doing.  The demonstrations that they watched were:
  • Chemical Luminescence
  • Exploding Bottle - they loved this one!
  • Exploding Balloons - and this one!
  • Flash Paper
  • pH
  • Root Beer Float
  • Liquid Nitrogen
  • Single Cell
  • Optical Illusion
  • Lycopodium Powder
  • Camouflage

Volume 6 - Water, Space and the Solar System seemed to have the same effect that Volume 4 had {smiles}.  The demonstrations included in Volume 6 are:
  • Water Disappear
  • Boil Water in a Paper Cup - they really enjoyed this one!
  • Properties of Water
  • Floating Balls
  • As Cold as Outer Space
  • Make a Rocket - this one was also a big hit.
  • Living in Space
  • Solar System
  • Centripetal Force

The Go Science Videos are a GOD Centered, Creation Based science series that was originally produced for a religious television show.  This series is directed toward children ages 6-14, I would like to mention that both of my boys enjoyed these videos and they are only 3 and 5.

The teacher on the Go Science Video series is Ben Roy.  Ben teaches science methods at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and is the former director of a science program on television.
Ben is very enthusiastic about his demonstration and it great at capturing the children's attention and keeping it!  He is an inspiration to kids to be excited about science, while teaching the kids to give the credit and glory to the Lord! 

We really liked these videos and would love to have the complete collection.  You can purchase them for at the wholesale price of $8.97 each or the whole collection for $47.95.  What a deal, what a deal!! 

Check out what others from the TOS Crew have to say about LES and the Go Science Video Series.
