The Way Things Work is a fully animated series based on the best-selling book by Caldecott Medallist David Macaulay. Each fun-filled episode enables children to understand how the principles of physics affect daily life. On the mythical "Mammoth Island," a group of islanders and their indigenous mammoths are caught up in a series of entertaining adventures, which are motivated and inspired by their need to find solutions to various everyday problems. All the discoveries of the Mammoth Islanders have been chronicled and sketched in a visiting inventor's journal. This colorful journal forms the basis of the series and will assist viewers in learning all about The Way Things Work. Teacher's guides are included and available online.

Only available in the US.
