The Magic School Bus was one of my favorite series when I was a child, and I am so happy that I can share this program with my daughter through Netflix. We’ve learned all about the human body, the ocean, light, and more from this series. It’s a wonderful supplement to our homeschool curriculum because it keeps the learning fun!

  1. My two have always loved the Wild Kratts. What kid doesn’t love learning things about animals, though?

  2. Brandy says:

    We love Wild Kratts (maybe me more than the kids) and Jimmy Neutron! Great selections, I haven’t head of some of the others so will have to check them out since all we use is NetFlix and HuluPlus for tv!

  3. I have to try that Wild Kratts. The other shows are fun too.

  4. Chris Marie says:

    I have seen Jimmy Neutron Boy Genius but not any of the other movies. Thanks for sharing your top 5 list….we will have to check them out!

  6. Shell says:

    The Magic School Bus movies are great because they are educational, too. My boys like to make an event of watching a movie with popcorn and snacks.

  7. My daughter is kind of young for science videos but we have watched snippets of Sid the Science Kid. I’ll have to check these out when she’s older!

  8. My boys love Peep. We watch shows on PBS as I like the educational value of them. And they throw in a joke for the parents to laugh at which makes it enjoyable for me. Thanks!!

  9. Wild Kratts is such a great show!! so many great options on netflix
