Possessive Adjectives( Visual )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the basic building blocks of learning any language, possessives give you the ability to say what belongs to you and what does not. But possessives in English can be a little bit tricky. When do you use "my" and when do use "mine"? Or "her" and "hers"? Confused? Don't be! Watch the program and soon possessives will be yours
Duck, Duck, Goose!( Visual )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this video clip, Chaislyn and Maddie play a game of Duck, Duck, Goose with their teachers. The girls use many strategies during their play. Chaislyn loves being the goose, but she knows that this role is supposed to be avoided. How does she handle this restriction? She invents an expression of feigned disappointment ("Oh man!") in order to cover her deliberate strategies to "lose." This feigned expression is an indication of her ability to think about other people's thinking. See how Chaislyn and Maddie modify other rules to make the game more fun. In the process of playing group games, young children come to understand fairness and the perspective of others

Elastic Rules Mean More Can Play( Visual )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video clip begins with two boys, Jaylin in green and Ethan in a blue shirt, standing against a brick wall in anticipation of a start signal for the race from Jeriah, wearing blue pants. Jeriah stands away from the wall as if to establish his role as 'starting gun'. He sees that Ethan is looking at him, so he raises his hand to signal that the starting word ("Go") is about to be spoken. But Jaylin is not looking at Jeriah, nor is Jeriah concerned that one of the racers is not ready. We might infer that the game is not about winning, and therefore there is no need for an equal chance for all to start at the same time. From these simple cues we will try to deconstruct what the children may be thinking and what rules their actions imply they are using. We can follow the ebb and flow of rules as they change with different leaders and new children joining the race
Beyond the Five Senses( Visual )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 756 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Four toddlers are walking on contact paper, sticky side up, taped to the floor. Most often such an activity is called "sensorial play" and justified with phrases such as "they are exploring their sense of touch." Such phrases, perhaps derived from Montessori's phrase of "educating the senses," imply that the children are learning what objects are smooth, what objects are rough, what objects are sticky, what objects are not. The emphasis is placed on a refinement of the sense, in this case touch, so that with experience, like a sculptor choosing the right wood, the child can determine the texture, the temperature, the grain, or the adhesiveness of objects. The literature on sensorial play seldom reveals the strategies the children use to make these distinctions and seldom reveals the extensions the child makes once an attribute, such as adhesiveness, is discovered. What does it yield for something to be sticky? What can I do with sticky? How can I have fun with sticky?
Bottomless Boxes Are Better( Visual )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this video clip, four year olds Evan (in yellow) and Alex (in red) rearrange bottomless wooden boxes into play props that have qualitatively different functions: a train to sit in, a tunnel to crawl through, a bridge to walk over, an enclosure to hide toy animals inside, and a chute to toss a ball into. When a child is able to change the function of an object by changing his perspective to that object, he learns an important lesson. When I want a new function, I do not need to discard the object. I can change (e.g. rotate) the object instead of exchange the object. This important lesson in problem solving

Secret Science : Chemical and Biological Weapons( Visual )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revelatory documentary about Porton Down--the world-leading military and scientific base that specializes in chemical and biological warfare and the fight against global terrorism. This top-secret British military unit was first established in World War One in response to the terrifying advances of chemical warfare. It now helps fight against biological weapons, the Ebola bomb and global terrorism--and it was here that scientists proved to President Obama that sarin was being used in Syria. For the first time, Porton Down opens its doors to the public. Secret Science also explores the controversies that have engulfed Porton Down. How far should one unit go in the battle against chemical and biological warfare--and what happens when the enemy refuses to play by the Geneva Convention rules?

Lost Cities of the Maya( Visual )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2019 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Maya were once the most powerful kings in Central America - they ruled a great civilisation at a time when Europe was still in the dark ages. Then they vanished. When the Conquistadors arrived, they found empty cities. Many believe that the Maya were hit by drought. Archaeologist Kathryn Rees Tylor and epigrapher Mark Zender disagree: the worst effects of the drought would have been felt in the northern half of the Yucatan peninsula, but whatever precipitated the collapse of the Maya civilisation hit the humid south. Convinced that the truth is far more sinister, they head for the unexplored Maya heartland in search of proof
