This kid-friendly video response form about life inside coral reefs can be used to assess students' knowledge taught in the Magic School Bus "Takes a Dive" episode. A summary of the episode states:
"When Wanda finds out that one of Ms. Frizzle's ancestors was Redbeard the Pirate, she naturally wants to follow the treasure map he left. The map leads them to a coral reef, and the kids find out firsthand that life here is risky. To survive, some plants and animals sometimes form the most surprising partnerships. But Wanda's not interested in partnerships. She just wants to find that treasure. To get the kids in the swim of things, Ms. Frizzle turns them into different sea creatures, and Wanda-Anemone, Wanda-Shrimp, and then Wanda-Remora begins to understand that partnerships are more important than she thought."
This form can be introduced before or after students watch the episode about coral reefs. It also can be used in small groups to enhance discussions about coral reefs, the living things that exist there and how they interact.
