The Magic School Bus Inside the Earth by Joanne Cole is a wonderful Earth Science book and the inspiration behind this freebie.The best part of the book is the graphics and labels. They correlate perfectly with the upper elementary curriculums.
I read the book to my students to introduce the 6th Grade "Inside the Earth" Unit on the layers of the earth. After instruction, review, and practice, I then give the students a homework assignment to write their own story about a class trip. It is nice to have a speculative creative writing prompt in the science content, rather than the normal informational writing.
This is a very simple idea and worksheet, but something that I love to incorporate. I then hang them on my door with some graphics I drew of the Magic School Bus characters. :)
