|”This is a wonderful resource for upper elementary/middle school science. The videos are in depth without being beyond the grasp of a student that is just beginning to study science concepts in greater depth from the primary years.
The content is well organized and you can save specific videos for later use along with the lesson plans/worksheets.”
|”Amazing website! Easy to navigate, for both my daughter and I. We both enjoyed having so many options and such a variety of learning tool at our fingertips.”|
|”My 6 yr old and I did the study on ducks and we loved it. It encouraged us to visit the park and the zoo and see the different breeds.”|
|”Kids (13, 11) enjoy it a lot and ask to go online often. I love the fact that they stay on top off all new developments in the field of STEM. I am also grateful for their field trip to open my kids' eyes to the world and to job and career ideas.
It's like have this huge team of experts working for me :)”
|”I am very excited about starting the year with this program. My children's ages are nine and seven, and this will allow me to teach their science lessons together. The instructional videos look engaging and the accompanying lesson worksheets will be an effective tool to assess learning, as well as giving them something to work on independently for a short period of time. My oldest son has studied all three areas of science offered, but my youngest has only worked on two areas. This site will allow me to choose from all three areas and custom our learning around the things they have not mastered yet.”|
|”Discovery Science has great educational video that are perfect for supplementing our home school science lessons.”|
|”I am so excited to have discovered Discovery Education Science!! I bought it as a way to supplement our science curriculum. This offers everything for every science subject all in one place. There are thousands of videos, articles, ebooks, experiements, quizzes, etc. But, you can create your own quizes and assign them to your child as well. There is enough information out there to use this as your curriculum. My child is excited by it and loves to get on and learn his science. This is a definite must have for our house!”|
|”This product is a great ancillary teaching tool. My children are visual learners, so it is an effective method of learning new material. It easy to find topics you want to learn about and the graphics are superb! Glad we were able to purchase!”|
|”My 7yo and 10yo boys love science. I let them explore the Discovery Education Science programs in their free time. They follow the threads they are interested in and keep themselves busy for at least 45 minutes exploring videos, vocabulary and the related activities.”|
|”Firstly without the HSBC discount, this is a very expensive subcription . I thank you for making it affordable. I try getting interesting resources for my daughters and this tops the list in terms of making science interesting . Content is immense , highly informative and appropriately aligned for the grades. Kids are on their own in terms of exploring the topics of their choice. I am sure this subscription will go a long way in developing the scientific temprament. Heartfelt thanks to your team, for making this possible .”|
|”Fabulous. My children use it everyday and love it. Tons of educational content presented in a way that is entertaining. The only thing I have had trouble with is the assignment builder, which took too much time to figure out and use. It definitely could be more user-friendly. I've chosen to give assignments verbally because I had so much trouble with it. Other than that, it is wonderful and I hope you offer it again in the future.”|
|”I just had to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for offering the Discovery Education site! As a home school mom of 3 teaching Science has always been a bit daunting. This site make it SO easy to put together interesting daily lessons for the kids. They LOVE the videos and I love the accompanying materials I can use to expand on the topic. Great job bringing this resource to us.”|
|”Discovery Education has been a great resource for my 1st and 3rd grade boys. They love the videos, activities and games. I love the teaching tools and materials.”|
|”Great, great videos! A little tough to navigate at first as there is a steep learning curve for the mom/ dad/ teacher, but once you figure it out you could create a great science or health curriculum with this. We like it a lot!”|
|”I purchased this last year for my 8 year old. He absolutely loved the site and it was his treat for after getting other work done. Then I find him playing "science" with his younger brother talking about various concepts that he learned from the site. Obviously he is retaining the concepts taught and enjoying his time learning.”|
|”This is the second year we have used the Discovery Education online products. It is amazing to have so much information at your fingertips. For both years we have purchased the science and health programs. We are regular Discovery Channel watchers, so to be able to manipulate the programs and choices is so much fun -- my kids ask to continue after school is finished for the day. The health program is great as well. Again, the information is available so quickly all you have to do is type in your topic, and select grade level. You are then given options for the types of presentations for the material. You can design your own curriculum out of their programs, or use it to supplement another. Last year I used it as a supplement. This year I am designing my own. I will continue to use this product! Science is a very intricate and ever-changing subject, I enjoy having the experts on my side!”|
|”DE Science is the BEST science tool I have found in my 5 years of homeschooling. I bought it as a supplement and it quickly became the main focus of my lesson plans and I've told all my homeschool and public school teacher friends about it. Thank you to Homeschool Buyers Co-op for negotiating this discount as the list price would be FAR beyond the means of my homeschool family.”|
|”My son (6 years old) has been using this for a couple of weeks now and he is enjoying it quite a bit. He is able to navigate to whatever topic he likes, and I rarely need to sit with him. He looks forward to watching and reading the various science topics.
Some of the videos are too short or do not read aloud. But other than that we like this product a lot. My younger daughter (2 1/2 year old) too looks forward to the "science program", and studies along with her brother, which is something pretty amazing.”
|”Discovery Education Science is one the most exciting parts about our Science curriculum right now. Honestly, it is our main science curriculum right now! The videos seem endless and the kids want to be on it all the time. I will eagerly continue this service when my year is up. I have told other homeschooling moms about it and it seems that all of them agreed this would be a refreshing change to what is currently boring science at home. Thank you Discovery Education and Homeschool Buyers Co-op.”|
|”Discovery Education Science videos and online interactives work as an introduction, a supplement or guide on the various science topics. As a parent, I enjoy the videos not only because of their educational value but my kids find them fun to watch. There are many topics covered so that we use the site all year long. I have subscribed to DE Science for three years and it is now an essential as a part of my homeschool curriculum.”|
|”My kids love Discovery Education Science. There are lots of material on the site and they like to go exploring, watching the videos, and playing the games (online lab or solving mysteries). I was going to use this as part of their regularly scheduled school, but now have turned it into an end of the day reward for finishing their work. I let them get on a little on the weekends too. Fun and educational :)”|
|”This has been a great resource for school. There is a video for just about everything. There is also teachers guide for the majority of them that helps frame up a nice lesson plan around the topic. We love it!”|
|”After reviewing a story or lesson on a health or science topic, I take out my IPad and we watch 2 or 3 segments regarding the subject discussed. It's easy, engaging, breaks up the reading assignments and I could NEVER have afforded this recourse without fhe Homeschool Buyers Co-op. Thank you, thank you, thank you. We love Discovery Education.”|
|”For the price of just a few DVD's, DE Science offers a wide variety of high quality digital media (from photos to full length video) to enrich your homeschool science program in ways beyond what you can imagine.
Online I can review and decide which videos, clips or other media to include in my son's assignments - and then he signs on to complete his assignments throughout the week. It is very easy to use once you learn the ins and outs of the DE interface.
My son is a very science-oriented child and DE Science is one of the things he looks forward to in his lessons each day! I love that I have access to a huge library of resources online that can be tailored to fit with our lessons at home any time!”
|”I'm new to homeschooling, and Discovery Science has more than helped me offer a complete curriculum to my daughter. The videos and online interactive learning keeps my 6-year-old interested, and I enjoy the assessments to see what she learned and retained. I would recommend this program to everyone.”|
|”I have been using both middle and elementary level Discovery Education Science for 3 years. The videos are a fantastic supplement to any core science curriculum. It also reinforces a large variety of science topics. My kids enjoy not only the videos, but also the articles and interactive educative clips. I could not teach science without Discovery Education Science.”|
|”I would not homeschool without Discovery Education Plus, including Discovery Education Science. I know this sounds a little extreme, but it's 100% true. I have been homeschooling for five years and know for a fact that the videos help my students learn about subjects diverse as Shakespeare, geometry microbiology, world communities, etc.”|
|”My kids love Discovery Education Science. We had used Time4Learning for K-2nd but found their 3rd grade Science to be too much reading and not enough fun. I was initially disappointed with DE Science, because I found the process for assigning work too tedious and time consuming to use. But, since my children liked it so much, I decided to try a different approach which is completely easy for me to manage. I basically allow my children to decide what they want to learn about and to work through a video or interactive lesson of their choosing. Then, they write a paragraph or a page summarizing what they learned. This accomplishes two things. They are utilizing their writing skills and proving what they learned. And, it is child-led which means they are very motivated about what they are learning. This may not be enough to satisfy the requirements of older children but for 2nd, 3rd, or 4th graders is works quite well. To test my children, they simply read through their summaries, and I cull questions from what they have written. I have told others about it, and their children have liked it as well. Simply put, it is engaging, and my children have never complained about doing Discovery Education Science.”|
