Synopsis by Sally Barber
A three-part series, the Look and Learn -- Elementary Age collection presents a well-paced program examining basic and complex elements of science, technology, and geography. Concepts are explored with the use of archival material, live-action, and computer animation. Look and Learn -- Elementary Age: The Mechanics of Toys offers a look at the scientific functions employed in the construction of movable toys. Simple demonstrations relate how gravity, batteries, friction, momentum, cranks, flywheels, and generators work to create action playthings. Other programs in the series are Look and Learn -- Elementary Age: The Frog's Life Cycle and Look and Lean -- Elementary Age: Bridges.
