Students learn by magic.

Magic is a great way to make educational content compelling. Why?

Two thirds of students are visual learners—they're wired to respond better to a visual medium like magic than to a classroom lecture. They pay attention to me, and I provide a fantastically fun learning experience.

My name is Scott Green. I write, produce, direct and perform all Magic in the Classroom assemblies. I'm a nationally renowned family entertainer and I use amazing magic to captivate your students and teach them about important subjects.

 

 

Why do schools love Magic in the Classroom?

CONTENT IS CUSTOMIZED GRADE BY GRADE, K-8

You'll get a presentation tailored to your students, whatever ages they are. Each assembly is different when performed for kindergarteners than for eight graders, and different still if you've got many grades together. This customization means students are always taught age-appropriate content in an age-appropriate way.

STUDENTS RETAIN WHAT THEY LEARN

Students retain what they learn long after the presentation is over because my assemblies create memorable teaching moments.

the Educational content is guided by experts

You'll get an assembly that teaches the stuff your students should learn. I designed my shows in collaboration with experts like librarians, juvenile dietitians, the USDA, the SPLC and ADL, among others. Magic is fun, but I take my job seriously.

Students have an unbelievably fun time

The educational content is the most important thing, but your students will love these assemblies. The magic is amazing, the lessons are interactive and the school-appropriate humor is wildly funny.

The assemblies really are amazing

Your school will be the next to learn what hundreds of others already know—Magic in the Classroom is the real deal. That's why so many schools invite me back year after year.

The BLAST Bullying Magic Show

CREATE BETTER STUDENT CITIZENS.

NEW FOR 2017! Students learn actionable steps to prevent and stop bullying in your school.

With curriculum culled from the SPLC's Teaching Tolerance; the ADL's World of Tolerance; the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the National Crime Prevention Center, this is one bullying program that gets messaging right.

Magic is used as a visual aid to identify bullying; demonstrate the five steps for bystanders to help a bullying victim; help victims stand up for themselves in a constructive way; develop empathy; and more.

The program is adjusted to be age-appropriate for any group. For younger grade levels, the emphasis is on building empathy. For older grades, the emphasis is on personal responsibility.

Help your students learn these essential skills in a way they'll enjoy and remember. Book this great assembly today.

A simple magic trick helps students dive into the world of non-fiction books.

The Magic Library

Make reading exciting.

The Magic Library gives students the tools they need to use the library, and inspires them to use those tools to read for pleasure.

Students K-8 will laugh until their sides hurt, participate throughout the show's 45 minutes and witness feats of mind-bending magic. And by the end, they'll have learned how to find great books at the library, the world of genres, fiction vs. non-fiction, and the value of a library card.

Books also come to life: two students join me onstage to play Mr. Hoppy and Mrs. Silver, the protagonists of Esio Trot by Roald Dahl. Those volunteers, along with the rest of the audience, use Dahl's magic spell ("Esio trot, esio trot, teg reggib reggib...") to reenact the magic of the book, making a stuffed tortoise grow to 100 times its original size.

And with a little help from Harry Potter, one student is selected to float in the air.

The MyPlate Magic Show

MAKE NUTRITION SIMPLE.

The MyPlate Magic Show empowers students to take control of their diets by teaching essential, age-appropriate nutritional concepts.

Everybody will participate, everybody will laugh, and everybody will wonder at amazing feats of magic. And during this 45-minute assembly, K-8 students will learn how to identify which foods are likely to be high in sugar, how to use the MyPlate food groups, how to read nutrition labels, how to make positive snacking decisions, and why breakfast is so important.

Because The MyPlate Magic Show was developed in partnership with the USDA, and co-written with a dietitian, the educational content is right on target. Students learn the material so well that by the end of the show, they're teaching the material back to me.

Nutrition can be a dry subject, but it doesn't have to be. With such an important topic, you'll be glad you commissioned The MyPlate Magic Show to make it fun.

The History of Magic

make the arts come alive.

NEW FOR 2016-17! Students take a walk through history through the lens of magic, learning about the development of a millennia-old art form.

Even your most jaded middle school and junior high students will be on the edges of their seats as they interact with the trick that quelled a 19th century insurrection against the French empire. They'll be rapt watching the Cups and Balls, a trick so old it's depicted in hieroglyphics on an ancient Egyptian tomb. They'll almost believe the impossible as they learn about a feud involving Harry Houdini, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, phony spiritualists and Victorian England.

Your students will discover with a newfound appreciation for the arts, and be curious to learn more about the historical periods and personalities brought to life during the performance. 

It's a whole different kind of cultural arts enrichment - and, you'll agree, a whole better kind.

Family Night Magic Shows

I literally wrote the book on performing magic for family audiences! 

My hysterical family magic shows are Chicago's best - that's why I'm ranked #1 on Yelp. Students and parents alike have a great time, be it family reading night, a school fundraiser, or whatever other event would benefit from fantastic entertainment.

Choose my all-purpose show, The Better-Than-TV Magic Show; my Halloween show, "The Silly Spooky Magic Show," which has a light trick-or-treat safety theme; or my non-denominational "The Winter Show," a celebration of snow, presents and the spirit of giving. 

These shows are available during the school day or after. Pair one of my family magic shows with assemblies and two great things happen: first, attendance at the after-school event spikes as students drag their parents to see the funny magician from school today; and two, you'll get a great discount.

You can have me for your school's family night - or you can settle for someone who merely read my book.

45 minutes; for all ages

Don't wait - get in touch today for more information and to book one of these great assemblies for your school.

About Scott Green

Scott Green 2017_21.jpg

Magician Scott Green (hey, that's me!) conceives, writes, directs, produces and performs all Magic in the Classroom assemblies. I love when a gymnasium of students has a howling good time while they learn.

A leader in my industry, I've created numerous original effects and am a featured lecturer at magicians' conferences. I'm the author of a book on my craft, Excellence in Family Magic, and a national award-winning comedy writer. 

My educational background was in a different field entirely - I graduated law school and passed the bar, but decided my passion was in bringing educational entertainment to children and became a full-time professional performer.

Millions have seen me perform magic - at schools, libraries and private events; plus regularly on Chicago television, and occasionally on national TV.

I live in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood with my wife and two young children. An avid game show fan, I've been a contestant on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" and "The Price Is Right."
