This DVD can be ordered on the company’s website. It is approximately 45 minutes in length.
This DVD was made by Annie Crawley, a diving instructor, field biologist and underwater filmmaker and photographer. It is all beautiful footage of life in the ocean. The author’s narrative points out the diversity of life in the ocean and how that diversity is necessary for the survival of the ocean’s inhabitants and draws a parallel with diversity in our world as well. Segments include “The Ocean Song,” Crusty Crustaceans, Night Diving, Coral Reef Living, Be A Submarine Pilot, Swim In A Kelp Forest, Sea Animals With Backbones, Diversity and Invertebrates Of The Sea.
Along with this DVD I received PDFs of lesson plans and reproducible worksheets to coordinate with this DVD. There was one for Pre-K and one for grades 1-3. Each of those segments listed above can be viewed separately with activities from these e-books added on to the lesson along with additional facts that are given in the ebook. The guides are available as a printed version for $299 (for the whole set) or as individual PDFs for $69.95. The DVD that is the subject of this review can be purchased for $19.95 on the website.
My girls were fascinated with this DVD. One of them is an animal lover that wants to do something in the Biology / Zoology field when she is older and loves to gather as many facts as possible about all the earth’s animals. This will be viewed over and over in our home and will be a valuable part of our science library.
I recommend this DVD and all the other wonderful DVDs offered by Dive Into Your Imagination to homeschoolers, grandparents and parents.
