I would use this book for 3rd or 4th grades. As long as I can remember kids have always love The Magic School Bus series. While none of us will be able to shrink on a bus and experience real life things up close students can relate to the students in the series and expand their knowledge on different topics. This book at the right reading level for 3rd and 4th graders that you could have each of them independently read it or use it as an interactive read aloud and follow up with allowing the students to watch the TV series of this exact book.

This is a fun book to read to students in 1st or 2nd grade. The amount of text that is on each page may make it difficult for first graders to read on their own. If you have your 2nd graders read it on their own, I would go over the list of content vocabulary with them before they read it because they may struggle with some of those words if they have not already learned them in science. This is a great book to use during a science lesson talking about plants and how they grow. A popular experiment to do is have your students grow their own plant and have them record data about how their plant is growing. You can teach them about the scientific method using this activity as well. The book has good illustrations to show what is happening in the story and it has character thought bubbles as well that make some of the pictures a little more entertaining. You can have your students identify the main topic from this book and then have them go through the text and find supporting evidence that shows it is the main topic. This helps them to practice backing up their answers with proof. You can also talk to your students about why this book is fictional and how we could not really take a field trip to a garden and shrink down like they do. 1st grade standards: 2, 6, 7, 8 2nd grade standards: 4, 6, 7, 8
