Smarty Pants Product of the Week - Physical Science DVD by Rock 'N Learn

Physical Science by Rock ‘N Learn
Smarty Pants Review
Flashback to upper elementary and middle school years...what’s the difference between a neutron and a proton?? What’s the scientific method? What’s the difference between a chemical and a physical change? Okay, I’m guessing most of you could answer one, maybe two. Now what do you do when your grade 5+ munchkin needs help under

standing topics like, motion & gravity, or electricity & magnetism? Rock ‘N Learn has put together another very worthwhile, entertaining DVD that is exactly what you should have for the years of Physical Science!
I enjoyed this DVD, alongside my husband (former student of mechanical engineering). He certifies that the information was accurate, and I certify that it was entertaining. On top of that, as a former elementary school teacher, I truly certify that it is a DVD that is well worth the time of your student.
Rock ‘N Learn also provides super supplemental activities (tests & posters) to compliment the DVD! Check them out! http://www.markthepencil/

Why is it a Smarty Pants of Product?
As Smart Mamas we are certainly entitled to be a little rusty in areas of science that we may not have even looked at since the pop quiz in 6th grade! Having resources available to appropriately support your learning munchkin is a very Smart Mama way to be!

If I were asked to help with physical sciences homework, I'd dial 911. Though I had a good education, somehow I managed to duck most science courses. "Rusty" doesn't begin to describe it; the Tin Man would dance rings around me in science.

Great giveaway. Thanks!

If I was asked to help with physical science homework, first I would see if I DEFINITELY knew the answer (which is unlikely), then I'd ask my husband and/or dad to help. If they were not available, I'd call the teacher to see if she/he could suggest a tutor for my child AND ME!

I would love to help, because I like science. And there are a lot of good books and websites on Physical Science now days.

If I was asked I'd have to brush up myself so I could be prepared.
Otherwise I'd ask someone smarter to help.

If I was asked for help with physical science homework, I would fire up the computer. The internet is an awesome resource for those of us not really famaliar with the subject.

It would depend on the time limitations and the pupil. I could easily get wrapped up in "clearing some cobwebs out of the attic" to re-familiarize myself with the subject matter... or I could just defer to my wife - she may not have a clue about the specified topic but she will gladly offer her full expertise on something (and I don't mean that in a negative manner) :)

My husband is the "default" go-to-guy for techie questions of ANY kind. I usually remember the answers, but that minimal 'prompting' required doesn't inspire confidence in anyone involved.

If anything, I have to remember not to paint too broad a picture -- if our teenager asks a simple question and gets a half-hour long answer, he goes away looking more confused than when he started.
