Exploring Creation with General Science Companion CD-ROM
Includes microscopic videos of cellular reproduction, bacteria, and other single-cell organisms, and an underwater video. Some of the figures from the course are animated so students get a better understanding of the topics. Technical words are pronounced. System requirements: Windows 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and 8 (not supported for Mac operating systems).
Items listed in this section tend to be complete science programs with a teacher and student component, requiring few supplements besides science supplies.

My only real complaint is that it's not always convenient to be by the computer during our science lesson. I have made it work though. If we "skip" a session on the CD-Rom I don't worry about it. The next time we see the prompt we will view the video/graphic from the current lesson and then the one that was "skipped". This way we get extra review of that topic. It works out perfectly.
Overall, I really like the CD-Rom. I will love it even more if I can use it again in a couple of years with another child, but with technology these days, that is not a guarantee. I love having it with our lessons but it's not essential. I'm not sure I would buy it again but I'm glad I have it. The CD-Rom is a great value for the money. I recommend it.
