Celebrate PLUTO DAY February 18th with this classic ride on the Magic School Bus!

It's always a good time with Ms. Frizzle! You provide the video- students provide the learning. Aligned with Common Core Language Arts standards for grades 2-5 feel comfortable and confident having your learners be entertained!

(the science standards are a stretch...I'm sure you are up to the challenge!)

You can organize the elements included with file folders, composition or spiral notebook or even by gluing to construction or loose leaf paper!

If creating a File Folder lapbook with this MSB pack, the sample uses 2 File folders folded “Science fair style” and glued together in the middle.

If you are “note booking” by gluing the elements into a composition, spiral notebook or binder using loose leaf paper, just use as many sheets as it takes. I do recommend perhaps using oversized construction paper for the element in which the children lay out the planets as a diagram around the sun.

NOTE about MSB Lost in Space/ PLUTO: This Episode Originally aired in 1994, before the discovery of Eris in 2005. The Discovery of Eris caused the International Astronomical Union to formally define PLANET in 2006, causing Pluto to be reclassified as a Dwarf Planet. Eris is also a Dwarf Planet, and obviously not mentioned in the episode. I have included Black and white planet clip art of a planet so Pluto can be included in your lapbook study as it is included in the episode, or you can leave it off as you see fit. The Materials for Pluto are all on their own page to make Printing/copying easier and less confusing to the learner should you choose not to use it.

As always - I hope you enjoy the journey!
