Throw Back Thursday: The Magic School Bus

The Magic School Bus was an animated children’s television show that was based of a book series by Joanna Cole and Bruce Begen. The TV show premiered in 1994 and it was pretty much a fun way to learn about science.

The Magic School Bus took place at a school and on their bus. Their teacher, Ms. Frizzle, took her kids Ralphie Tennelli, Carlos Ramon, Phoebe Terese, Kessha Franklin, Tim Jamal, Dorothy Ann, Janet Perlstein, Wanda Li, and Arnold Matthew Perlstein on science adventures!

The show talks about a 100 different things so you can’t just pick one, it was 100% a great way to learn about science; I have friends who knew stuff before they were taught it in school all because they watched The Magic School Bus!

I loved this show, so check it out on YouTube if you real like watching more and let me know what you think!

Throw Back Thursday: Bill Nye the Science Guy

I believe I speak for every student, past and present, when you walked into science class and saw that huge TV you knew it was going to be a great class. It could go two ways, (a) a really boring movie that you probably never paid any attention to or (b) the awesome Bill Nye the Science Guy!

Bill Nye the Science Guy was an educational show that focused on all things science. Each teacher always made a worksheet that had questions you needed to look for as you watched, the best part was that all the questions were in order so you just went along and wrote.
Bill Nye made whatever topic he was talking about interesting and easy to understand.

The Show was only 30 mins long and had a great theme song that got stuck in your head. For the rest of the day you’d be saying, “Bill, Bill, Bill!” It was fun though!

Well that’s all folks! Let me know if you liked these shows in class and if so which one was your favourite?

Thanks for reading,
