The Magic School Bus

A number of you watch Netflix. (and I admit I watch way too much TV these days)

A number of you might watch the show “The Magic School Bus” because each time you do, there’s some pretty neat knowledge you can take away from that show!

Miss Frizzle and her class take adventures each episode, and I had the opportunity to watch a VERY relevant show that pertains to all of us with a hearing loss.

What’s that? A show that actually gives us more knowledge and FUN? I’m game.

The Episode I’m referring to is “The Magic School Bus in the Haunted House” (Season 1, Episode 8) Check out the IMDb review of this episode. It’s not about hearing loss per se, but rather a good show on sounds – from high pitches to low pitches, and how we need to have vibrations in our environments to produce sound.

If you have classmates who need to better understand how sound works (because for us, we hear things a bit differently), then this is a great way to introduce it to them! Even my 5 year old daughter asked me after watching this show if I heard things different than her.

In a nutshell, it’s a great conversation starter. For parents, teachers, students, and friends. Now, go watch Netflix. It’s worth watching, and don’t forget the popcorn.
