Music and learning( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Music and movement( Visual )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When young children hear music, their natural inclination 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."--Cover
Astronomy : observations and theories( Visual )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 begins with an explanation of the processes that allowed the planets in this part of the solar system to grow to such large sizes. How the gravity of Jupiter produces tidal heating of lo and Europa, causing the extensive volcanic activity on lo and a liquid ocean beneath the surface of Europa is explained. Saturn's interior and atmosphere are compared with thos of Jupiter. The formation and characterisitics of the ice giants Uranus and Neptune are also discussed."--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

"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

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

"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
