I am learning that I can find all sorts of hidden gems on Netflix. My most recent discovery… The Magic School Bus! I had major flashbacks to elementary school and getting to watch this show in class whenever the show covered a topic that we were learning about in school. I also remember enjoying watching the show at home with my sisters. Who didn’t want to have an awesome teacher like Ms. Frizzle, and a duck phone?
Netflix has all 4 seasons of The Magic School Bus. You and your kids can learn about everything from how animals stay warm in the cold arctic ocean waters to outer space. It is definitely worth checking out if your kiddo is suddenly asking about different topics, you just might find an episode that will help give a bit more detail. Don’t be surprised though if they start hoping that any bus they get onto would fly. My favourite episode is still the one where the Magic School Bus group ends up baked in a cake.
There are also several other shows on Netflix that are science based, and kid friendly.
