    Magic School Bus.

    I teach 4th. I have used the Magic School Bus inside the Human Body. Here is what I did with it. We of course read out of our boring Science books first about the organ systems. Then I read aloud the Magic School Bus Inside the Human body. I also showed the video. We created life size bodies by tracing ourselves onto big white paper, then we drew and cut out the organs and placed them in the correct place and labeled them on the paper. We also wrote stories called Microscopic Me. We imagined that we got shrunk down to mini size and went exploring in the human body. These were published pieces that I laminated for the kids and we placed them in the classroom library. The kids still read them while they have free time or silent reading. This book and video enhanced thier learning as well as being cute.

    The other one I used was the Beehive one. We learned about bees/flowers. The kids did several assignments including making a styrophoam(sp) model of a bee and labeling the parts ...some kids wanted to make a model of a flower so I allowed them to do that and label the parts of that, too.
