School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 4-This live-action video is part of the Space Science for Children series which is part of the Schlessinger Science Library videos that reinforce concepts from the National Science Education Content Standards. Here viewers are sent on an imaginary flight to the moon and learn a variety of moon facts along the way. The moon's size, phases, lack of atmosphere, lower gravity, and tidal effects are a few of the things discussed. The 1969 Apollo 11 moon mission is highlighted, with historical footage, and facts learned from moon rocks are presented. The video constantly compares and contrasts the moon with the Earth, and makes concepts clear through activities and demonstrations. New words are introduced and clearly explained. Questions presented at the beginning of the video are reviewed, along with their answers, at the end. This offers pre- and post-research opportunities. Video and audio quality are excellent. This interesting and informative video would be a good addition to school libraries.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary School, Federal Way, WA (c) Copyright 2010.
