PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you like what you see...then "Follow Me"! Thanks in advance for leaving your feedback. I LOVE hearing from you!

The Magic School Bus on the Ocean Floor is a terrific teaching tool. Students from grades 2 - 5 love this series. The unit is set up so that teachers can either select certain activities to use, or the unit can be copied as a packet. This unit focuses on vocabulary and science concepts taught in the story.

The teaching materials are broken down into days. Each day has a checklist. Depending upon the time available, students may be able to complete a day in one class period, or teachers could assign a day to be completed in a specific number of class periods. There are five days in this unit. However, it will probably take 6 days to complete, as there is a final project (a mural) and a vocabulary test.

In my unit I include a science investigation as well as a group project (the final project). The science investigation uses easy to gather materials.

My students are in 5th grade, and science is emphasized. I selected the Magic School bus series for a number of reasons. 1. Students enjoy the books. 2. The books do a great job reviewing the science concepts we have already studied as well as teaching more science concepts. 3. The books are easy to find.

In my class, I am using this unit as a small group activity. I will have groups of three students reading different Magic School Bus books. Groups will rotate through each title. I find this easier to manage, because I only need a few copies of each book instead of class sets.
