Squibs 8: In the Body


“Squibs 8: In the Body” introduces young learners to important science concepts. Learn about Organ Systems in the Body, Sound and the Ear, Hemoglobin, What Causes Disease? and more. There’s even a “Tough Word” section to reinforce these concepts. This DVD contains 18 animated videos that teach about organs, health, and nutrition.

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.

Dove Review

The body is always amazing to study. “Squibs” puts the study of the body to music in animation and shows diagrams. It is a fantastic way to study some of the scientific topics of the body. The kids will enjoy it so much that they will be encouraged to learn more. It is vital to get children to want to learn and “Squibs” uses ingenious ways to encourage them to have an interest in science. I believe that watching this DVD will urge them to investigate more topics about the body, just as the series will make them want to extend their knowledge in science.
