Magic School Bus DVDs (**GIVEAWAY**)

This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

In our family, watching Magic School Bus is a treat.  The recent release of “In a Pickle” and the 3-DVD set “Revving Up” were met with enthusiasm and a big bowl of popcorn.  What the kids don’t realize, is that Magic School Bus sets us up for a discussion on science principles.  Sometimes, we even dive further into a subject by experimenting, reading more books, or asking Daddy (a scientist).  Get ready for some science learning and fun!

Magic School Bus Revving up

There are so many great opportunities to connect your kids with science via these DVDs.  The kids and Ms. Frizzle make science fun, taking the viewer to places you cannot normally go.  For instance, in the Revving Up episode, the kids and Ms. Frizzle go inside an engine to learn how it works, from the gas tank all the way out the muffler.  With great explanations and lots of problem solving, the kids learn about combustion engines.  My favorite part is at the end, where “kids” call in to tell the producer all the things that are truly impossible with the show…like going inside an engine.  However, they do it and it makes science learning fun!

Magic School Bus is a terrific platform for science learning at home or in the classroom.  Look for these two new offerings from Scholastic AND check out their previous releases.  You can purchase individual DVDs that include 3-4 episodes or own the complete 52-episode series .

    The little girl I baby-sit loves the books, I can’t imagine how excited she will be when she finds out there is a show to LOL. If I don’t win, maybe the library will have some…
