Dove Review

Once again the “Squibs” series amazes me with another fantastic educational tool for science. In this learning experience about things in the ground they have added a relationship of History to Science. It is about how the course of things in history have changed our lives by studying rocks through geology. I am amazed at how this series of DVDs make science so entertaining yet very educational. The combination of music, animation and real life film clips are an excellent display of information to get everyone interested in science.
