YES!!! I have VERY visual learners who love science and learning about how everything works inside the human body! In fact, my 4-year-old is obsessed with all books about the human body and says she will be a doctor when she grows up. Seeing how things work instead of just hearing about it or reading about it in a textbook – brings learning to life and helps any student to understand the subjects much better and in a much easier way.
When I heard there were comic books that could help my children learn science, I was skeptical, because comic books have never been my thing. But I’m being won over because I’ve discovered the magic of Manga learning tools!
Find this series of science comic books on Educents was just like finding a precious gem in a treasure hunt!
By the way, I love shopping for education resources at Educents! It blows my mind all the variety of resources they have to offer for amazing prices, way cheaper than any other places, including Amazon!
What is Manga?
It’s a style of Japanese comic books and graphic novels, typically aimed at adults as well as children.
Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with learning?
I’ve discovered this tremendous resource for teaching kids science and all about the human body. Rather than a dry text and diagram textbook, concepts are covered in a story-based format that’s also visual, so learners of all kinds have more to glom onto, and it’s easier to recall. Sort of like our trusted and true pal Ms. Frizzle of the Magic School Bus, but for slightly older children depending on the book. Last but certainly not least – it makes learning fun! Imagine if your child requested to re-read a science textbook. That’s what these amazing books can inspire.
We, Charlotte Mason homeschoolers, love using books like his to teach our kids and we call them living books!
Survive! Inside the Human Body comic books are so much fun!
