A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.

vocabulary is great for students to expand their own vocabularies. If this were used in a class over a couple of lessons, it would present many moments to stop and discuss new vocabulary and strategies for making meaning of the new words. It is worth noting however, that the use of magic and discussion of witches may meet disapproval from some parents.
