George Washington Carver - His Life & His Work DVD Review
Marshall Publishing is known for its' educational DVD's and books. We love to keep learning interesting and that includes using DVD's and video documentaries to enhance our lessons. So, when I was selected to review the George Washington Carver: His Life and His Work DVD I was very excited.
The DVD tells the story of Carver's life from childhood on up. His life of overcoming obstacles, tireless dedication, education, work, discoveries and contributions is inspiring! Honestly, I had no idea how much Carver impacted our world and contributed to the growth of agriculture and horticulture.
My family sat together to watch this almost 30 minute film. The narration was interesting and the pictures and video were nostalgic. I did feel like I was taken back in time to middle school as the music and videography seemed dated. But, the content of the DVD came across and was a wonderful addition to our days' history lesson. I found that it would be best suited for upper elementary and older.
To top it off, Marshall Publishing provides a Study Guide and Discussion Questions to accompany the video. You can find that at the website also when you order your copy of the DVD. These added features would be best for middle schoolers and older.
