I had the opportunity to watch PBSkids’ “Sid the Science Kid” this morning and it was fantastic!
It’s geared toward young children and each episode focuses on an aspect of the nature of science. The episode I saw today discussed what happens to produce over time. Sid and his friends discovered that fruits and vegetables ripen and then begin to decay. They used their ability to observe to figure out what types of changes were occurring.
Plus, the characters are always singing and dancing with energy, enthusiasm, and styles that kids can identify with. The characters are multicultural and in many different ways appeal and connect with most young viewers, making science approachable for all sorts of kids!
I found that “Sid the Science Kid” is actually in RedBox rental centers. The one recently was all about bugs!
