Marshall publishing carries a series of educational Dvd's for homeschoolers. We had a chance to enjoy George Washington Carver, His Life and His Work. While this was geared to older students, I do think all ages would be inspired by this movie.
When Random and I began watching, he commented on how 'old fasioned' it seemed. Little Guy was glued to it. This movie is not flashy, but 30 minutes of incredible information. It begins with beautiful nature scenes and quotes from George W. Carver. The fascinating history of his life pursuing education is told while using footage of each location he lived in. It was like following a museum docent around the country. The film used different voices to quote significant people in Carver's life. I loved the blend of nature, history, music and narration to tell the story of this incredible American. I claimed many of the inspirational quotes for my life and will be placing them on bathroom mirrors in my home. Here are just a couple I adore:
There is no short cut to achievement. Life requires thorough preparation - veneer isn't worth anything.
I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.
I enjoy using films in our homeschool. I was impressed that Marshall Publishing offers free study questions here on Marshall Publishing's website. They also have other films available for all ages. George W. Carver is currently $19.95. You can save 15% off your order by using the top secret code available to the wonderful readers of my blog. The code is TOSC1 at check out.

Now the necessarily disclosure:
As a member of the TOS Homeschool crew, this year I am reviewing many homeschooling products that I have received for free. I am not paid to say nice things about the products, but I am obligated to use the product and share my honest opinions with you.
Don't take my word for it. If you would like more information about the Dvd, click here. See what other crew members thought about this movie here.
