Magic School Bus

Every other Tuesday from 4:15pm-5:00pm (during the summer, every Monday from 3:30pm-4:15pm), we join Ms. Frizzle and go for a ride on the Magic School Bus! After the video, we do an activity (craft, game, science experiment, etc.) that relates! Click twice on picture for more information.

July 21, 2014. MSB: Under Construction. Two inches tall, and trapped in a bathroom at Wanda's house, the kids have to get out before Wanda's mother discovers them. Gathering building materials such as spiky hair curlers, sticky Band-Aids, dental floss, and cotton swabs, the kids use what they've learned about structure to construct a series of towers and bridges across the bathroom to an open window! They get across the toilet OK - but will they get past the alligator in the bathtub?

July 7, 2014. MSB: Out of this World. Ms. Frizzle's class rockets into outer space to divert an asteroid from crashing into Earth. The children learn about gravity, meteors and comets while they and Ms. Frizzle race to save the world.
