Skeleton–Eyewitness DVD

SkeletonSkeleton – Eyewitness DVD
Produced by DK Canada

About the DVD

Here is an original and exciting new look at the fascinating natural world of ponds and rivers. Stunning real-life photographs of fish, water beetles, frogs, underwater weeds, and more offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the natural history of plants and animals that live in and around freshwater habitats. See how a trout develops from its egg, how a dragonfly nymph changes into a dragonfly, what plants look like under the water, and how waterbirds camouflage themselves. Learn how a frog catches its food, why a caddisfly makes a case from sticks and shells, and why kingfisher eggs have no camouflage markings. Discover how to distinguish the difference between toad spawn and frog spawn, how underwater nests are made, how a salmon climbs a weir, which insects can walk on water, and much, much more.

Our Thoughts

This dvd is a wonderful addition when you are studying the human body – more specifically the bones.   Not only does it covers the bones in our body but it will give more information about the bones of animals as well.

Guided with a human skeleton you will see a eyewitness book brought to life.    Mind you not everyone would like to show this dvd to their kids just because of the creepy skeleton walking around.  But my kids didn’t had any problems watching it and it was a good review of the lessons learned on the bones in our body at the same time.    The only negative points I have from this dvd is that evolution mentioned a few times and tarot cards as well as the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration.   So I stopped a few times and had a chat with the kids about what we were seeing and talked about our beliefs in God and what he says about tarot cards and evolution. 

As I mentioned before I want my kids to be exposed to other belief system so that they are in better shape to defend their own faith later in life.   We don’t go too deep in this kind of information but at least they are aware of it.  Still even with the mentions of these issues, the dvd very informative on the skeleton of every living creatures.   It demonstrates the importance of it as well as gives a ton of information about the bones.    I was impressed with the quality of the video as well as with the information on the skeleton presented.   

Skeleton – Eyewitness DVD is available at your favourite bookstore, even amazon.ca.
