I am sooo excited about this – The Magic School Bus: The Complete Series will be available to purchase on DVD September 7, 2012! This terrific series is AWESOME to have on hand both for entertainment and educational purposes. I personally am using it to supplement my daughter’s preschool curriculum and she loves it! She’s only 4 1/2 and can understand it all so this is a series that is great for all ages.
About The Magic School Bus: The Complete Series
Seatbelts everyone! Sparks of discovery fly with this 8-DVD set containing all 52 episodes of the Emmy Award-winning animated science-adventure series.
Ride with Ms. Frizzle, teacher extraordinaire, and her enthusiastic, inquisitive students as their Magic School Bus takes them on cliff-hanging field trips inside the human body, back to prehistoric times, far out into space, and everywhere else in between! Grab a seat and hang on for all four seasons of the longest-running kids science series ever!
The box set comes with eight (8) DVDs and includes 52 episodes! You’ll also find a list of all the episodes and topics, ideas for family science fun, experiments, tips for viewing, a mini coloring book, and much more!
Some of the topics covered include:
♦ Food chains
Of course that’s just a very small sampling of what the series covers – each episode covers a topic so your child will be learning about 52 different subjects! See a list of episodes and topics here.
This is a great homeschooling science resource. One of the ways it can be used is to watch an episode a week (or every other day) and assign related science activities. For instance, Emma and I have watched the episode “Hops Home” about Bella the frog, then continued to learn about frogs in school for the rest of the week. We went to the pet store to look at the frogs, did some frog-related crafts, studied frog facts, and she played a game on her MobiGo that showed how a frog grows from a minnow to a full-grown frog by swimming along and eating, navigating around dangers like snakes and large fish.
We love this series and give it two thumbs up! I recommend it and think it’s a wonderful gift idea for kids 4 and up.
