Squibs 4: In the Environment


“Squibs 4: In the Environment” introduces young learners to important science concepts. Learn about Structure vs. Function, Voluntary and Involuntary Response, Biotic and Abiotic, Ecosystem Categories and more. There’s even a “Tough Words” section to reinforce these concepts. This DVD contains 18 animated videos that show how organisms relate to their ecosystems.

Children are fascinated by science questions: Why are there seasons? Why doesn’t gravity make Earth fall into the Sun? How do plants use sunlight to make their own food? At home or in the classroom, “Squibs” appeals to children’s natural curiosity about their world.

“Squibs” DVDs set learning in motion for 4th-6th graders, with short animated videos answering these and other key questions in Earth, Life, and Physical Science. Each DVD engages young learners with songs, humor, and animated characters, appealing to different learning styles while teaching important concepts required by Science Standards. The Tough Words section reinforces key terms and concepts the children need to know. “Squibs” DVDs teach science in the ways children learn best – with fun!

Dove Review

An ingenious way to teach science to kids through animation, humor, music and poetry. There are many chapters making it easy to stop and hold a discussion about the subjects that are viewed. This concept will make kids enjoy learning. The added word list with definitions will expand their vocabulary. I could not put it better than the quote on the front of the DVD box – “Science multimedia for growing brains.”
