Disclosure and special note from Jamerrill: Educents is a wonderful and long-time sponsor of FreeHomeschoolDeals.com. I received a free Magic School Bus Membership subscription and compensation for this post. Please know that I only accept products from sponsors when I feel the information will help my readers, and of course when the products are a blessing to my children that I can reasonably fit into our homeschool day. The compensation I receive pays for my time (AKA: mom locked alone in a room writing an article) and helps make the work of FreeHomeschoolDeals.com possible. I know you’ll enjoy learning more about these science kits!

How We Homeschool Using Magic School Bus Science

The Magic School Bus Science Kits are perfect to add to your homeschool. You can use them to add more science fun and hands-on learning to your current homeschool science curriculum. The Magic School Bus Kits can also be a great way to gently add-in science studies to compliment natural learning styles. However you homeschool (and isn’t it great that we all don’t have to match) the Magic School Bus Monthly Membership can easily be adapted to fit your family flair.

When you sign up for the Magic School Bus Science Kit Subscription, you receive a jam-packed bubble wrapped mailing with a load of science fun. I want to walk you through what a monthly package looks like, as well as show some different ways we’ve used the Magic School Bus Membership.

What’s in a Magic School Bus Monthly Mailing

Magic School Bus Leg Model

When you open a Magic School Bus Science Kit you’ll find all the contents conventionally packaged in double plastic bags. There is one outer bag that holds all the items, including further plastic bags holding individual science kit contents. I really like being able to reach in and pull out everything already organized for me.

The Human Body Kit

Inside each kit there is a very important science instruction booklet featuring the beloved Ms. Frizzle. It’s usually about 7 to 10-ish pages or so. The first page gives an overview of the themed science lesson, while the following pages break each lesson down with easy to understand instructions. What I like about this is we can open up a science kit, turn to a lesson page, and jump right in to that hand-ons activity. It helps me feel like a “fun mom” because we’re doing a science activity, and I didn’t have the stress or mess of pulling it all together. That’s what I call a homeschool mom win!

Creative Ways We Use Magic School Bus Kits

You can easily add these Magic School Bus Science Kits into your homeschool day as part of your homeschool learning. But that’s not the only way to use these science kits! Here are a few more creative ways to work the Magic School Bus Science Kits into your family life:

Educents Magic School Bus

  • Use with multiple grades for family style learning at the kitchen table.
  • Let an upper elementary learner take a kit and work through the experiments on their own for hands-on, independent learning. Not only are they learning science, they are working on reading comprehension, following directions, sequencing skills, and more.
  • Save these Magic School Bus Science Kits as a special learning treat for family holidays, vacations, and even summer learning. Like you know, the learning never stops in a homeschool family!
  • Give this Magic School Bus Science Kit subscription to nieces, nephews, cousins, and other young learners as Christmas or Birthday gifts to give the gift of learning through out the entire year.

Evening Magic School Bus Activities

  • Lately we’ve used our Magic School Bus Science Kits as a fun bedtime activity!  In the picture above I let three children pick a science kit and pick one activity each. They were able to work through their chosen activities as I moved from child-to-child to provide individual assistance.
  • Indoor Activity for the Upcoming Winter! Colder weather is moving in for our part of the country (tipping my hat to international friends who are moving into their warmer weather season). I plan on breaking out our science kits as needed this winter when cabin fever is trying to visit our house.
