  • The Immune System: Our Internal Defender

    Explore the complex immune system

    This program explores the complex and remarkable immune system and its vital role in the defense of our bodies.

    It introduces students to the microorganisms and minute foreign particles surrounding us at all times, including the infectious viruses and bacteria that threaten us when these foes break through the body's outer defenses. It explores the nature of immunity, graphically presents phagocytes, T-cells, and B-cells, the defending heroes of the immune system, and outlines the phases of immune response — from recognition of the invader to the eventual slowdown of the battle as the invader is defeated.

  • Beas Own Good

    Set in the beautiful Loire Valley of France, a honeybee named Beatrice learns that rules are made for her own good.

    Make a beeline for the French countryside to learn how boundaries benefit everyone.

    To keep the honeycomb strong, to make the very best honey, and to keep all the little honeybees safe and sound, bees must do things just so — according to honeybee rules.

    One early spring day, an inexperienced honeybee named Beatrice hears about the most beautiful garden in the world, and she decides to go on an expedition, even if it means breaking a rule or two. When a change in the weather turns her outing into a near-disaster, Bea realizes that rules are for her own good.

    Bea's story takes students to the Loire Valley of France where they will visit a beehive, a country market, and the famous Chateau of Villandry. Illustrator Andra Chase has created delicately beautiful scenes of Bea’s world inside and outside her hive. 

    This DVD is a word for word match of the storybook and will help you:

     Investigate the function of rules at home and at school
     Promote responsibility and self-control
     Explore the lives of bees and other insects
     Present information about the culture and geography of France

    [an] excellent, well-rounded production...”

  • AIDS Facts for Kids

    This compelling program gives kids the facts they need to make healthy choices. Grades 5-8

    Here is a straightforward message for your students: "Protecting yourself from HIV and AIDS is your own responsibility." AIDS: Facts for Kids puts to rest unnecessary fears about HIV infection, then focuses on the real dangers of uninformed or irresponsible behavior.

    Beginning with the basics, students learn about HIV and how it disables the immune system, leaving the infected person vulnerable to an array of diseases. Students learn that we don't catch HIV from a sneeze, a water fountain, a telephone, a swimming pool, or other casual contact with an HIV-infected person. HIV is transmitted in two ways: by having sex with an infected person or by allowing infected blood to get mixed with our own.

    This program offers straightforward advice to students:

    -Don't have sex

    - Don't use illegal drugs

    -Guard against any activity - like piercing a friend's ears - that might result in the mixing of blood
