Monster Physics™ (Age 4+) The Matrix (Age 14+) Erin Brockovich (Age 15+) LeapFrog Explorer Learning Game (Age 6+) Playing LEAPFROG EXPLORER LEARNING GAME: DISNEY PHINEAS AND FERB is almost like watching an episode of the show of the same name, minus a few key characters. In it, the boys decide to build a water balloon launcher that they can drive around. At the same time, Dr. Doofenshmirtz has created a similar machine that shoots rotten food. Throughout the game, the boys are upgrading their machine and testing it out on some rogue robots. When they aren't looking, Agent P, aka Perry the Platypus, borrows the machine to battle Dr. The game has six levels to complete with increasing difficulty, each containing educational mini-games.

Paper Clips (Age 8+) This documentary isn't a slick, celebrity-narrated account of the Whitwell students' simple but life-changing Holocaust studies project. In fact, the biggest celebrity is Happy Days dad Tom Bosley, who, as a Jewish grandfather, sent in one paper clip to the class. Instead, the documentary earnestly focuses on the principal Linda Hooper, assistant principal David Smith, and language-arts teacher Sandra Roberts, and the students and journalists who helped spread the word that a group of white Southern kids were doing their best to honor the six million Jewish people killed by Hitler's racist regime. Throughout the collection process, the students, who didn't even know any Jews personally when they began the project, become attuned to the stories behind the paper clips and understand that unchecked intolerance and prejudice can lead to genocide.
