I’m writing today to tell you about this AMAZING , HANDS-ON, YEAR-LONG SCIENCE JOURNEY!
I am so excited to share this with you – I used to use Magic School Bus books with my students when I was a teacher, and The Magic School Bus has been something we have enjoyed in homeschooling as well. I was drooling over this program last spring, and now it’s on sale 50% off!
For All the Kids Who Love to Ask “Why?”
The Magic School Bus Science Club is a 12- month science kit subscription based on the award-winning series, The Magic School Bus. If you haven’t heard about the series before, each of the stories center on the antics of a frizzy-red haired fictional elementary school teacher, Ms. Frizzle, and her class, who board a “magic school bus” to take them on field trips to impossible locations, like the solar system, clouds, the past, and inside the human body. This story-based learning is a fantastic example of learning from “living” stories, and it took the science scene by storm in the 90’s.
But it’s the 2000s!!
The kit subscription takes it to the next level with HANDS ON learning that all ties into the stories! It’s also HALF OFF FOR 10 MORE DAYS! This is a great choice for families with multiple children, kinesthetic, and visual learners – and just a fun, educational activity for a rainy day! The kits include experiments related to Volcanoes, Weather, Water, Fossils, Bacteria and Fungi, Star and Planets, and the weather, which, given recent events I want to brush up on, too.
One experiment my kids have been really excited to try is the Volcano Kit! The kit comes with a small volcanic rock, a pumice stone, sheets of paper, black paint, paint brush, a magnifying glass all to build a volcano. I can’t stress to you enough how key (for me) it is to get a kit that includes everything. I have learned that I am too busy to keep up with buying supplies every week, and I wasted a lot of money on another science kit that didn’t include the supplies, but had a list. i figured I’d buy all the supplies before we started the year. Wrong. -We learned the list wasn’t accurate, but not until we were trying to do the experiments! Soooo frustrating! So I love a science set that comes with all the parts included!
Check out the video below to see the fun experiment and explosive result (this one is from Educents so you don’t have to see my kitchen..)
Here’s the run down:
- Detailed, extensive 12-page colorful manual that is full of experiments and topic information
- Each manual was based on the award winning Magic School Bus Book (and TV) series
- A handy dandy cheat sheet for adults, so you can lead the way with no background in science (shhh.. I always preferred reading…)
- Tools and instructions for a at least 7 interactive experiments per month
- Online Clubhouse for further exploration on each package topic (take advantage of this!!)
- Certificate of Completion – a great way to reinforce learning and accomplishments
The Price: Package is for $119.00 currently (50% off deal for only ten days). You do have to pay it at once, but it comes out to $10/month over the course of the year. For me, that’s a solid investmentto get an amazing value!
