I found a list at Paula's, but it's too advanced.

These may be too old for elementary age, but she can wade through and see.

It may sound silly, but my kids (and I) have learned a lot from the Magic School Bus DVDs. The kids LOVE them. After we watch an episode I ask them to tell me two things they learned, and the retention is amazing.
Both of my girls love MSB. I use the episodes to add on to science and even history sometimes (like All Dried Up).
They also adore the School House Rock DVD.

Another big hit here is the Electric Company. It's a blast from the past, but it does reinforce reading skills beyond the K/1 level and who can resist the clothes!?!

My library carries them. Ask your about carrying them.
Or, Amazon has them for $53.99 a set (a little pricey).
