Sid the Science Kid
Weather Kid SidDVD - 2009
Sid is excited--about the weather. Stymied by rain on a day when he had important plans, he and his friends set out to investigate weather: rain, sun, temperature, and wind. They ask questions, do experiments, examine cause and effect, and discuss their results. Sid is an inquisitive youngster who tackles the everyday ideas that preschoolers find fascinating (Why do bananas go "bad?" How does my juice box straw work? How does a bird fly without a plane?). "Sid the Science Kid" promotes science-readiness by encouraging kids' instinctive curiosity about the world around them. Each set of programs concentrates on a single scientific concept to allow children to observe, describe, and quantify, and use tools like rulers or magnifying glasses.
