Creators: Magic School Bus Science

Posted by Trisha Fyfe on January 18, 2016 at 12:10 AM

We are going to have a lot of fun this semester! My thoughts for this class are to start each day by reading a book from the Magic School Bus series by Joanna Cole. We are going to try one book/theme a week, but if it seems to be too much, we can carry topics over by adding additional weeks and cutting out a few books. Each day we will read together, discuss the theme and related vocabulary, do an activity or experiment, and record our findings in a science notebook (I am providing these). Here is our tentative schedule:


January 19- Who is Ms. Frizzle? What is the Magic School Bus? What makes a good scientist? Start Science Notebooks


January 26- The Magic School Bus: Lost in the Solar System (Activity: Mapping out/drawing planets in our solar system)


February 2- The Magic School Bus: On the Ocean Floor (Experiment: Density of water- salt vs. fresh water & warm vs. cold water)


February 9 No School


February 16- The Magic School Bus: At the Waterworks and/or The Magic School Bus: Wet All Over (Experiment: The water cycle- making rain)


February 23- The Magic School Bus: Inside a Hurricane (Activity: Types of clouds)
