Last summer my kids learned a lot from Sid the Science Kid when we reviewed 2 of Sid's DVD's, The Bug Club and Change Happens -- and this summer looks like it could a Sid Summer too. We received another Sid DVD earlier this year -- Weather Kid Sid -- which my kids really enjoyed, a new Sid the Science Kid episode premiered recently, and more new episodes are slated to arrive in the fall! I love how Sid and his friends tackle new problems and make new discoveries with every episode, and teach preschoolers how much fun it can be to learn.
Here's a description of Weather Kid Sid DVD:
Rain, rain, go away; Sid the Science Kid wants to play! Sid s not too happy when rain threatens to squash his play date outside. But the more Sid learns about the rain, the more he understands how important precipitation is. In fact Sid is learning about all kinds of weather patterns and how it affects our world. At school Sid studies the sun and how it lights up our world. At home, Sid s family visits relatives where it s really chilly. Brrrr! It s cold in here... Sid hits the science lab to discover that wind, rain and sun can be fascinating and fun!
And here's a description of Sid's new tv episode, the No School SingAlong Special:
Sid wonders what he could possibly do on his day off from school. But when all his friends come over for a play date, they quickly put their science minds together and decide to put on a show in the backyard! They each take turns rocking out as they sing their favorite science songs for a very appreciative audience of Mom, Dad, and Zeke!
Here's a special preview:
The show debuted on June 21; check your local PBS listings for replay dates.
