(Review) Brainfood Learning: The Fascinating World of Birds







We have been blessed with some great products to review this summer, and The Fascinating World of Birds DVD from Brainfood Learning is no exception. My animal-loving 5th grader couldn't wait to see what this new video was all about!  This 44-minute DVD is very educational, but I bet your kids won't even realize they're learning until it's all over.

The Fascinating World of Birds is appropriate for all ages, and there is no "fluff" in the narration (which we loved).  Each video segment featuring a different bird is viewable independently from each other, so that you can spread the viewing out over several days, or you may chose the "Play All" option as well.  We chose to watch it in two sittings.

The birds species featured on this DVD include:
  • Ostrich
  • Penguin
  • Canada Goose
  • Owl
  • Hummingbird
  • Woodpecker
  • Macaw
  • Pelican
  • American Robin
  • Eagle  

Here's a preview from the Brainfood Learning website, so you can get a real feel for what to expect:



As a bonus for the home learning setting, a multi-section review is included at the end of the DVD. The review questions range from easy to advanced, so all ages can participate in this section as well. Here are some examples of what you'll see in this section:





As another added bonus, Brainfood Learning has now produced a wonderful companion lesson plan PDF for each video in their Fascinating World series.  These are available for FREE on their website under the "Curriculum" tab. Here is the link to lesson plan guide to The Fascinating World of Birdshttps://www.brainfoodlearning.com/content/birds_lesson_plan.pdf.  This guide has most definitely helped us really dive more deeply into learning everything we can about the birds presented in this video.



Ready to purchase yours?  Click here to purchase The Fascinating World of Birds DVD for only $14.99! You won't be disappointed! (At least, in my opinion).  Want to read what others thought of this DVD and two other titles from Brainfood Learning? Click the blinking banner to find more reviews from my fellow Crew Mates!

  3. At first I thought - oh, birds. But then you listed the birds and I thought - well, that would be pretty cool. I have friends who are bird watchers and I always thought it sounded boring but it is all about presentation - thanks for sharing!!
