When Ms. Frizzle plunges The Magic School Bus full speed ahead into the ocean, it's no ordinary driving accident. She's taking the kids on an extraordinary submarine expedition to the bottom of the sea. With a well-meaning lifeguard in tow, the class takes a deep breath and learns about hot water vents, coral reefs, and plant and animal life all across the ocean floor. And as always, that magical school bus is equipped for every challenge.
Ms. Frizzle is a teacher like no other; she's bold, offbeat, and kind of wacky. But she loves science and her enthusiasm quickly rubs off on her students. Why learn in a classroom when there's a magical school bus that can whisk everyone off to the center of the action? Whether they're traveling to ocean floors, outer space, or active volcanoes, Ms. Frizzle's class enjoys hands-on learning. And thanks to the way each book is formatted — with speech bubbles, notebook pages, data files, and ink sketches — readers feel like they're part of the adventure too. With an approach to learning that's both exciting and informative, this clever series invites readers to share in the thrill of scientific discovery.
