Sid the Science Kid (Giveaway)
Growing up, Science was never one of my favorite subjects. However, I may have felt differently if Sid the Science Kid was around back then.
“Sid the Science Kid”, The Jim Henson Company’s first series for PBS KIDS that features a practical in-school science curriculum, uses music and humor to celebrate children’s natural curiosity about science in everyday life. The energetic and inquisitive Sid starts each episode with a new question (”Why are my shoes shrinking?” “Why do bananas get mushy?”) and embarks on a fun-filled day of finding answers with the help of family and friends.
We recently had the opportunity to review 2 new Sid the Science Kid DVDs: The Bug Club & Change Happens.
In Change Happens, we join Sid and the rest of the gang as they discuss why things change when exposed to time, temperature, and the environment. Girlie Girl’s favorite episode was My Mushy Banana where the class talked about how different foods decay. It was pretty cool to see how elapsed time affected a perfect pumpkin into a pile of moldy mush. Baby Bug liked My Shrinking Shoes because it helped her to understand how her body is growing every day even though she can’t really see it.
In The Bug Club, Sid takes a look at his backyard and wonders about all the things in it: leaves, dirt, bugs, animals, and more. Our family’s favorite episode is Hello Doggie because we’ve all wondered from time to time if animals can understand us. Hello Doggie teaches us that all animals communicate in their own unique way by using body language, sounds, and barking!
Both DVDs also included a bonus disk that includes full stories from other great children shows such as WordWorld, Dive Olly Dive!, Hurray for Huckle!, Tine Planets, Will & Dewitt, Animal Atlas, Hermie and Friends, Pocoya and Hopia.
Overall, we feel Sid the Science Kid is a great educational show for children. It teaches them the reasoning behind the way things work and makes it fun in the process. I especially like when they have Lab Time where their teacher asks them questions and encourages the kids to use critical thinking to figure out the answers. Education and fun all together in one show! Expose your children to the wonders of Sid the Science Kid and watch them learn to love Science!
