Homeschool Special from MarshMedia: A TOS Crew Review

Health Education Products for K-8 {MarshMedia }
Homeschool Special from MarshMedia

Health education is so important!  We have been enjoying the many videos on a variety of health topics with the Homeschool Special from MarshMedia.   Our subscription access allows us to view any or all of their library of 59 educational videos any time we want.

MarshMedia offers an extensive collection of videos for grades K-8 on topics like hygeiene, health, puberty, safety and many more.  They have been producing high quality instruction since 1969 for schools, nurses, and other organizations.  Now, they are offering it to the homeschool community as well. Normal price is up to $70  per program, but they are offering all 59 titles to be streamed at your convience for just $50!   If you wish to take advantage of the opportunity to introduce the MarshMedia curriculum to your home schooler(s) click on the link below for more information:

We have been talking about our eyes lately, so the first video we watched was for my younger crew (2nd - 5th graders).  This was approx. 13 minutes long set in "Annie's Place".  It was reminiscent of educational TV programs we used to watch.  It was fun and bright.   I was surprised by how much information they covered... how our eyes work, problems like pink eye, wearing glasses, and how visually impaired people read. My testers thought it was a little goofy at first, but they quickly started to really enjoy it. And, they learned so much.  

After the younger crew was done, my middle students choose a couple of videos.  It's a very easy website to use, and well organized.   They have been studying human anatomy and found this 10 minute video all about Blood Borne Pathogens.  It was fascinating. We learned about what do to stop the spread of germs, and even some basic steps to use when someone has a nosebleed.  I think adding videos to our curriculum gives them another way to enrich, reinforce and increase their learning.

MarshMedia offers plenty of videos to help you discuss puberty and some of the changes your children are experiencing.  This one  - "You're Not a Little Kid Anymore" is a 18 minute video that provides a great way to clearly show some basic self-care they need to know.  The video discusses the importance of daily showers, keeping your nails trimmed and clean, and taking care of your body.  I'm hoping that hearing this message from outside sources will help my young boys realize it's not just a "mom thing".  If only "use a deodorant" is a message that sticks with them :-)

My younger testers really enjoyed -"Hello Potter", a video production of a picture story book.  This story deals with teasing and how to get along. The illustrations were bright and colorful, and the story very engaging.

This is a treasure of resources!  We kept finding new videos on a huge variety of interesting topics.  Best of all, we have access to the entire library for the same affordable price.
