Dove Review

Ignite! has taken teaching science in a great direction. By using music, animation, and real life film, it will keep children interested in learning. Dividing this DVD into 19 video list topics enable it to be stopped at any time to hold a discussion or answer questions. Kids will be introduced to properties of matter and atoms along with historical scientists that made important discoveries. Each DVD in the “Squibs” series takes your child on a different scientific adventure. In fact if I would have had them, I would have taken a bigger interest in science.
