Comic Books Make Learning Science Fun!

When Little R first started reading, it was reaaaaaaallllly hard to keep him interested. He basically said that he hated reading and avoided it as much as possible. Then came graphic novels (aka comic books). Talk about a turn around!! He loved them and started reading without being encouraged. And it didn’t stop there, it just got the ball rolling. Now, less than 2 years later, he loves to read! He will grab a book, curl up in a corner and happily pass an hour diving into a book.

Now there are comic books that can help kids learn science! Keep reading and discover the magic of Manga learning tools!

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?

This is a 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 a 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 text book. That’s what these amazing books can inspire.

A great place to start is the Survive! Inside the Human Body series – you might even find yourself learning!

Topics covered in this book series about the human body: Human Body (anatomy), Digestive System, Circulatory System, Nervous System, Personal Wellness, Effects of Food on the Body, Medicine & technology, and Genetics.
But there are also advanced topics in this format like the Universe, Physics, Linear Algebra, and more available from Shockingly Awesome Learning on Educents.com.

    My son loves comic books! This would be good for him.

  2. These are really cool learning comics that teach about the Human body. My son and daughter would love to look at these!

  3. I’m all for anything that teaches and entertains at the same time. This sounds like a good series.

  4. This is such a great idea! Science books are usually pretty boring at any grade level. I think this would get kids more into the subject.

  5. I’ve been reading Comic books for many years now. First I started reading them to my younger siblings and then I actually got into a few of the plots and I was hooked!! Like watching a soap opera! I couldn’t wait to find out what was next! Plus we enjoyed looking at all of the awesome pictures!! Then everybody got older & we weren’t that interested anymore. Plus kids are cruel and made fun of us! But now I am finding out a few of these TV shows’ stories are from comic books! For example, my binge show: The Walking Dead and Superman, etc.

  6. I don’t know what happened. Maybe I rambled on too much and I ran out of room. But I was going to finish by adding, to comprehend and retain what I learned would be easier with a comic book. It would make it more fun!!
