The Magic School Bus Going Batty
Field Trip Notes
The class is studying nocturnal animals, and Ms. Frizzle takes the parents on a nighttime field trip to learn more about bats. As the night progresses, Ralphie becomes convinced that The Friz is a vampire! The class follows Ms. Frizzle and their parents to a scary old castle where, by becoming bats themselves, the kids find out the wonderful truth about these creatures of the night, and Ms. Frizzle!

As BatKids, Ms. Frizzle’s students use echolocation to find their way through the dark. Your kids can use sound to find their way through the room.
What You Need
Talk About It
Ask: How could you get around the room if it were too dark to see?
What To Do
Ask: Why do bats come out at night? (Predators and prey can’t see in the dark, but bats can locate them with echolocation.)
