A thunderstorm and a blackout send Ms. Frizzle and her class on an electrifying field trip to a power plant to see how electricity functions.
Small enough to squeeze through power lines, Ms. Frizzle's class learns how electric current travels through the town, lights up a light bulb, heats up a toaster, and runs an electric motor. Fans of the Magic School Bus won't be left behind by this simple and informative introduction to the generation and distribution of electricity.
