I love to teach my children and I especially love when I can find a great bonus resource for my homeschool. We do workboxes and it is fun for my kids to get something different in their boxes once in a while. They really love to get a dvd and when they do they get to go to the living room and watch it, very exciting for them right smack in the middle of their school day. Marshall Publishing recently send us a dvd on George Washington Carver’s life called George Washington Carver; His Life and His Work . This dvd was so good, it was very interesting and had beautiful music and photos to go with it. It came at the perfect time for us because we are studying American History this year.
This video truly inspires you, you get to learn about George Carver’s life but you also learn what moved and motivated him. It is one of those videos that when you get done with you want to go do something great! I was really amazed they pulled that off in 30 minutes but they did. If you are looking for great people in history to teach your children this is just perfect. Children learn so much from real life heros that really made a difference and that had true character. I have really been convicted in this area, to get my kids more and more biographies of the people before them that were great. This dvd really helped in that area and we loved it.
There are also stories on Abraham Lincoln, Lewis & Clark, and much more. I will be looking for more of these videos in the future. They are perfect in length (30 minutes) and give a great description of the life of these great people of our history.
