Exploring Microgravity With Janet's Planet and A giveaway

My boys love to watch TV and as a parent I want them to learn while watching TV.  So I jumped at the opportunity to review a DVD about microgravity. This DVD is from the website 
This website is a great place to learn about space. The DVD is a 37 minute exploration of gravity and microgravity. Not only is it fun to watch,it's highly educational and geared towards elementary school age kids. My yongest boys are 4 and 6 years and they also enjoyed watching the movie. Their favorite part was when the crew was in the zero gravity plane. 

The DVD focuses on science,technology,engineering,art, and math. Your kids will get to meat Galileo, Newton and Cavendish and find out how the universe works! 
Teachers will be happy to know Exploring Microgravity is supported with integrated curriculum and are provided with a lesson plan designed to intergrate with common core standards, base on a curriculum endorsed by NASA and Space Florida.
