Remember The Magic School Bus?
This favorite childhood cartoon, The Magic School Bus, provides a timely lesson for everyone. In this episode, Ralphie is sick and his mom has advised him to stay home from school. So what does Ms. Frizzle do? Gathers the students together to have class in Ralphie’s room. But this isn’t business as usual – the Magic School Bus shrinks and goes inside Ralphie’s body. As they travel through his bloodstream to his sore throat, the kids find out what’s making Ralphie sick. Throughout this episode, kids learn how white blood cells fight bacteria and many other aspects of the human body when it’s fighting a sickness. Take your kids back to the good ole’ days by sharing with them the always relevant lessons of The Magic School Bus. View Here.
