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.
August 4, 2014. MSB: Takes a Dive. When the Magic School Bus takes a dive, Wanda discovers that one of Ms. Frizzle's ancestors was Redbeard the Pirate and a treasure map leads the class to a coral reef where they learn first hand that life there is risky.
July 28, 2014. MSB: Goes on Air. We got assigned air, and it’s not fair! The only contribution the kids in Ms. Frizzle’s class have to give the Walkerville Space Capsule is an empty jar. "It’s not empty," argues Keesha. "It’s filled with...air!" "But air doesn’t do anything!" wails Ralphie. They discover the "air-ror" of their ways when they shrink and get stuck inside the jar - and all they find inside the "How-to-Get-Out-of-a-Pickle-Jar-When-You’re-the-Size-of-a-Snail Escape Kit" is...air!
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.

April 29, 2014. MSB: In the Rainforest. To celebrate Earth Day, the kids surprise Ms. Frizzle with her very own cocoa tree from the Rainforest Rental Catalog. But when the tree's cocoa bean harvest falls mysteriously short, it's time for, you guessed it, a rousing tropical field trip!
April 1, 2014. MSB Gets Ready, Set, Dough! On Ms. Frizzle's birthday, the bus gets baked into a cake.
April 1, 2014. We did a color changing milk experiment!
