TOS Review - Digital Frog

We received one of The Digital Field Trip Series DVD's from Digital Frog for Review. The cost for a Home License on this DVD is $125.00 and can be ordered here.

On this DVD there are three field trips: The Wetlands -The Rainforest and The Desert.

Also on the DVD are Student and Teacher Workbook pages for each field trip.

With this DVD the student can take a virtual field trip. There is an option to have the text read to the student and I found that helped my dyslexic son a lot. The virtual field trips are easy for the student to navigate and there are check points and signs that give additional information to the student if they are clicked on.

The field trips are very thorough - defining climate and weather for each area as well as the types of animals one can find in the habitat as well as the human impact.

My first suggestion would be to choose the area you would like to study and do a 'Quick Tour'. This will explain how to navigate your way through each lesson. In order to access the worksheets for each study you do need to go to My Computer - right click on the DVD drive and open folder. This will show you the files on the DVD and allow you to access the student and teacher files which come in PDF, Word and RTF (Rich Text File) formats.

My boys are still trying to see all there is to see on this DVD. I believe it will be a wonderful supplement to any biome study and well worth the price.
