- Learn about human body
- Interest in Science
- Develop problem-solving skills
The human body is strong and delicate at the same time. Educators and parents teach to children the importance of taking care of their bodies for them to grow strong and healthy. A child needs to be aware of their bodies so they can be careful when doing physical activities as well as avoid getting sick. As part of the STEM program there are many anatomy experimental kits and games for children to explore and learn about the human body. One of these kits is The Magic School Bus: A Journey into the Human Body which is based on the children program. With different activities such as bend bones and build a stethoscope, The Magic School Bus: A Journey into the Human Body and other similar kits are designed to help children understand the science behind how their own bodies function.
Like many other science kits, The Magic School Bus: A Journey into the Human Body is instrument for teaching science in a hands-on setting. Children get to interact with one another and discover the human body for themselves using their senses and the kits tools. While doing the experiments and other learning activities with the science kit, a child fosters their problem-solving skills. Children get to analyze and conduct their own theories while working on the activity. Following the procedure until getting the results, the child is constantly thinking critically and absorbing the lessons. The Magic School Bus: A Journey into the Human Body and other similar kits stimulates a child’s curiosity for leaning in an entertaining way. Helping the child develop their critical thinking and reasoning outside a classroom setting.
Furthermore, children get invested in working on research of the human body and develop interest in the science field. Science kits such as The Magic School Bus: A Journey into the Human Body allow children to be fully invested in whatever project they work on. Through the empirical process the child gets first-hand experience of what scientist do. Especially what doctors and healthcare professional look for when they go for check-ups. Understanding how the human body works helps children be brave when they are sick or have an injury. Also, it helps them create healthy habits to protect themselves from disease such as washing their hands. The Magic School Bus: A Journey into the Human Body and other anatomy kits service a child’s learning in a way they can understand and enjoy.
