Learn Science - Physical Science

This video helps kids learn important facts and get ready for a physical science test for grades 3 through 8. Marko the Pencil takes learners on a journey to his Super Science Station where it's easy to grasp science concepts. Includes lab safety, scientific method, molecules, electricity, motion, energy, and much more. Meets the National Science Education Standards.Kevin's science test is coming up. Unfortunately, his study partner called and can't make it. Marko, a magical pencil, comes to the rescue by taking Kevin to Marko's Super Science Station. Kevin prepares for his test by first learning the details of lab safety.Next, Marko introduces Kevin to his friend Lumina, an animated light bulb. Lumina shows Kevin how to remember the 6 steps of the scientific method: Question, Gather, Hypothesize, Experiment, Conclude, and Report.It's time to move on to the Matter Learning Center to gain an understanding of atoms, the particles of an atom, molecules, and states of matter. Eventually, Kevin explores the properties of matter that include melting point, boiling point, conductivity, luster, color, odor, density, hardness, magnetism, and texture. Kevin also discovers the differences between physical changes and chemical changes as well as how mixtures differ from pure substances.Surprise! Kevins chair blasts off to the Electricity Learning Center to learn about electric circuits and how opposite electric charges attract each other. Kevin and Marko then move on to the Magnetism Learning Center where Marko's friend Terra, an animated globe, helps Kevin understand the poles of a magnet and build a simple electromagnet.Eventually, Kevin and his friends visit two more centers to help Kevin prepare for his physical science test. In the Motion and Gravity Learning Center, Kevin learns about gravity, mass, distance between objects, velocity, acceleration, inertia, friction, resistance, and more. At last, everyone explores the Energy Learning Center to learn about the different forms of energy that include: heat, electrical, sound, chemical, mechanical, and light.By the end of the main section of this video, Kevin has enjoyed learning important concepts about physical science. Finally, Kevin and Marko practice a physical science test with questions similar to the ones Kevin will see on his test. This section helps prepare students for state-mandated tests that have multiple-choice questions about physical science.Awards: 2009 Preferred Choice - Creative Child Magazine, iParenting Media Award, The Toy Man Seal of Approval 2009, The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval, National Coalition for Children's Media Kids First!
