    Teacher Approved!

    We use this mature video with the Health Education curriculum at our middle school. Although, some images are very mature for certain grades, overall the video is rich with research and highly informative in an engaging way.

    My review

    This movie is all about how a woman reproduces a baby in her woond. First it starts with sexual intercourses. Then when the sperm fertilizes the egg the woman becomes pregnant. It takes nine months for the baby to come out. While the baby is in there it developes it's organs. It also developes it's arms and legs. That's my review for Miracle of Life.

    Nova: The Miracle of Life

    This is excellent. It starts with genetics and the natural history of life on Earth before getting to reproduction. The narrator gives loads of info on anatomy and physiology. The picture quality is very good, though sometimes a little fuzzy.
