Music and movement ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When young children hear music, their natural inclincation is to move their bodies in response to it. Research has shown that this movement, like the music itself, is an integral factor in the brain's and the body's healthy development. Music is an invaluable learning tool by itself, but its impact is vastly enhanced when it is joined with movement. [This program] explains what research has shown us about the importance of combining movement with music in early learning environments and shows experienced teachers using them effectively." -- Container

"From the time they are born, human beings are predisposed to learn and enjoy music. Children especially are open to it, and research increasingly has shown that exposure to music, and especially participation in making it, is invaluable in helping children's brains develop the "neural bridges" that make them stronger. This program explains why this is so and how experienced teachers use music to help children grow and learn" -- Container

"This video lesson looks at the classification of galaxies in general, and discusses the fact that, when these "island universes" were discovered, how the perceived size of our universe increased immensely. It goes on to describe the distance indicators and introduces the Hubble Law. The lesson ends with interaction and evolution of galaxies and with a sneak peek into the furthest depths of the universe." -- Container

"To determine how bright a star actually is, we need to know how far away it is. This lesson illustrates how to find distance to nearby stars and how to plot them on an H/R diagram. It also shows why binary stars are important for the study of stars and their mass/luminosity relation." -- Container

"This examination of solar system "debris": meteorites, asterois, and comets concludes the exploration of the solar system. Astronomers explain the composition of the different types of meteorites and various theories about their origin. Images, including that of the Deep Impact Probe hitting Comet Tempel 1 in July of 2005, are used to illustrate the characteristics of comets as described by astronomers. This lesson also includes a discussion of the demise of the dinosaurs and the discovery of the crater in the Yucatan that may have been the impact site." -- Container

"This lesson describes the thermonuclear process in the core of the sun, identifying the layers of the interior and atmosphere showing spectacular pictures of surface features, such as granulation and sunspots. The magnetic cycle and magnetic effects on the surface are also introduced. Discussion of how the sun affects Earth's climate conclude the lesson."--Container

"This lesson explains the motion of Earth around the sun and its yearly cycle. Astronomers explain the unique orbital and size relations between the rotation of Earth, the sun, and the moon and how this makes a total solar eclipse possible at predictable intervals, known as the Saros cycle. The lesson concludes with a description of the eliptic and explains how that differs from constellations that are contained in the zodiac."--Container

"This lesson describes the fascinating objects that remain after the deaths of large stars - neutron stars and black holes. Gamma ray bursts and hypernovae are presented as some of the most energetic objects in the universe." -- Container

"Some of the most profound questions are asked and discussed in the complex subject of cosmology. What shape is the universe? How did it begin? How will it end? Evidence is presented that supports the big bang theory, and the excting notion of dark energy is introduced." -- Container

"Explaning the concept of a scientific model, this lesson introduces the celestial sphere as a model to help describe and organize the night sky. Several specialists explaing how different cultures named stars and constellations, and brought the aspects of the sky into their buildings and structures, such as those of Chaco Canyon in the southwestern United States."--Container

"This lesson details the life and the death of stars. The fact that stars spend most of their lives on the main sequence of consuming their nuclear fuel in a stable manner is detailed and illustrated, as well as how a star's mass determines how quickly it consumes its fuel, how long it will live and how it will die. A presentation of the study of stellar remnants, the leftover products after a star dies, concludes the lesson and leads us to the topic of the next lesson, neutron stars and black holes." -- Container

"A presentation on the foundations of astronomy, The Birth of Astronomy examines the observations, theories, and contributions of Aristotle, Ptolemy, and other ancient scientists and philosophers. Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, Kepler, Galileo, and Sir Isaac Newton's contributions are discussed throughout this lesson." -- Container

"Astronomers are the only scientists who do not manipulate the objects they study. Instead, they do two basic things: collect ligth and analyze it. Accordingly, this lesson answers two basic questions: (1) What is light? and (2) What tools are used to collect it?" -- Container

"The study of stellar evolution is presented by examining the birth of stars. Different types of nebulae are introduced and the necessary ingredients to produce a star: dust, gas, gravity, and maybe a little push are discussed. The mass/luminosity relation is reintroduced and suggests the role that mass will play in the life and death of a star." -- Container

"Scientists discuss the possibility that the early seeds of life on Earth were delivered by comet impacts and the reasons why it is believed that the first life began on the deep seafloor near hydrothermal vents. The discussion continues with a look at Europa's subsurface ocean and the pros and cons of life forming in that hostile location. The life zone or habitable zone of a star is defined and the efforts to detect signatures of that life using future spacecraft missions are described. The efforts and difficulties of communicating with an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization are discussed." -- Container

"Opening with a survey of the solar system and an examination of the solar nebula theory that explains how our solar system was formed, this lesson also reviews how the spinning nebula formed a disk of dust particles that eventually became the planetesimals that formed the planets. The actual detection of planets around distant stars is given considerable coverage, with experts describing the newest techniques and the successes achieved." -- Container
