Kevin loves learning about the human body. He's even considering a career in the medical field. His friend Marko the Pencil arrives and invites Kevin on an exciting journey to explore the human body at Marko's Super Science Station, along with Bailey, an expert on life science.
At the Body Systems Learning Center, our friends learn about the skeletal system, nervous system, and muscular system. They move on to explore the parts of the circulatory system and how it transports nutrients, gases, and wastes to and from cells. The systems of the human body harmoniously work together. The urinary system helps remove waste from the blood. Kevin learns how the respiratory system allows oxygen into the blood and lets carbon dioxide leave the blood. Each system of the human body comes to life with colorful models and diagrams.
Next, Kevin explores models and animations of the human digestive system to learn what it includes and how it works. Kevin joins Marko and Bailey on an amusement park ride called The Alimentary Canal. The Rockin' Molars provide musical entertainment along the way.
Then it's time to move on to the Sensory Learning Center to explore each of the five senses: sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch. Large, realistic models help Kevin learn the parts involved in the five senses and how they work.
Before heading back home, Kevin becomes a game show contestant on "The Body Wheel." This is a fun way to review material about the human body and reinforce scientific facts and vocabulary words. Kevin leaves Marko's Super Science Station with a greater understanding of the human body and confidence to score high on a standardized test.
This DVD also includes bonus sections. Kids can watch the Alimentary Canal Song with lyrics on screen. They can practice answering standardized test questions with Marko coaching them and providing tips on how to read questions carefully, consider all the answers, eliminate obviously incorrect choices, and interpret a bar graph.
Help your child or students gain knowledge about the human body and learn important test-taking skills.

"What an amazing video presentation. Kids from 5 to 15 (yes we know that's beyond the suggested age) found it fascinating. Everyone who watches, parents too, learn something they never knew before about the human body. There is a virtual tour of the skeletal, nervous, muscular, cardiovascular, urinary, respiratory and digestive systems. But Rock 'N Learn was not content to end the lesson there, they added a bonus section addressing the Alimentary canal, and more. It's quite remarkable and testers were excited to give it enthusiastic write-ups. Just goes to show, when you have something that makes learning science or any subject fun, you want to shout about it." - Review, The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval Holiday Report
"Awesome! I appreciate the factual scientific names. The songs are cute, too. The animation is clear and entertaining. My child is a third grader and has been learning a lot of this at school. Their science teacher was excited when I shared this video with her. She has passed it on to the other teachers in her grade level to use with their students. This has good sound effects and colorful diagrams. I liked the colorful models, too. The Body Wheel was cute! My child liked it. It can be overwhelming for children to learn scientific facts. This DVD makes the information understandable and easy to learn. Thank you! This is a great product." - Reviewer, iParenting Media Awards
"This product was viewed by an after school program with around 15 school age students. The material covered on the DVD was educational and from listening to the conversation of the students some of the material they have had in school and some of the material was new so there was a good match." - Reviewer, iParenting Media Awards
"Intended for viewers in grades 4th through 8th, Human Body is a DVD by Rock 'n' Learn, correlated to National Science Education Standards. that teaches young people about how the human body works. The virtual tour, enhanced by computer animation, covers the skeletal, nervous, muscular, cardiovascular, urinary, respiratory, and digestive systems, as well as the alimentary canal and the nature of the five senses. Bonus material includes tips for doing well on a science test, and good nutrition pointers for kids. Free study materials that go along with the DVD are available online. An entertaining and thoroughly educational resource that makes learning fun, ideal for public school libraries and classroom viewing." - James Cox, Midwest Book Review, Children's Bookwatch DVD Shelf
"A great teaching tool. Another wonderful addition to the Rock 'N Learn science DVD series." - Samantha H., 6th grade teacher
"Factual material and vocabulary words are presented in a style that kids will remember." - Liz S., nursing student
"Fun for the whole family. Marko the Pencil keeps everyone entertained while giving helpful ways to remember the material." - Ira K., grandparent
"This was an exceptional learning tool for children. It was concise, factual and it flowed very smoothly from one body system to the next, keeping the child's interest. The video encourages an interest in the child's own body, increasing their understanding of the human body functions and the medical terminology used to describe each body part." - Reviewer, iParenting Media Awards
