About the DVD

Here is a an original and exciting new look at the fascinating natural world of plants. Stunning real-life photographs of flowers, fruits, seeds, leaves and more offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the natural history of plant anatomy and growth. See the biggest flower in the world, where a seed develops, what the inside of a plant stem looks like, how a flower attracts insects, what a plant's reproductive organs look like, and how a dandelion spreads its seeds. Learn how plants defend themselves, why flowers are brightly colored, how a plant can climb, why some plants feed on insects, and why some plants have no seeds. Discover why some plants have spines and stingers, what plants looked like millions of years ago, how plants survive in the desert, how plants turn sunlight into energy, and much, much more.

My Thoughts

We really enjoyed watching this DVD one gloomy morning during the month of June.   We learned quite a bit while listening to the narrator proceeded to explain everything relating to plants – from the seed to the various types of plants we can find on the planet.   We were amazed to be presented with stink plants which doesn’t grow on a yearly basis, to discover how carnivorous plants eat their prey, how the dandelion can be useful during war time and how a cactus can be affected by lighting in the desert…

This dvd was an eye opener to the world of plants and I think it would make a fabulous addition to your personal dvd library if you are homeschooling.   We have a book on Botany that I am thinking of using next year and I will definitively re-watch this dvd with the kids when we study the plants in more details.  The dvd can also supplement your studies of insects as you will see how they can help with the reproduction of plants.

If you are wondering how to entertain your kids during a rainy day or how to can feed their brain with educational information during the summer months, this dvd will allow them to learn quite a bit about plants.  

The Eyewitness DVD Plant is available for purchase at your favorite bookstore, even on amazon.ca and amazon.com.
