DVD Review - Magic School Bus: Takes a Dive
About the DVD
Wahoo! Welcome aboard The Magic School Bus! Are you ready for a wild ride? Grab a seat and hang on for three episodes of the Emmy Award-winning animated science-adventure series based on the best-selling books. Watch as Ms. Frizzle transforms her magic bus and encourages exploration and discovery from the smallest cell to the largest galaxy.
Dive into oceanic and wetland adventures with three Frizzle-tastic episodes:
GOES TO MUSSEL BEACH: Ms. Frizzle’s Uncle Shelby wants the class to look after his beachfront property. The kids soon discover that this “luxurious” accommodation is only a tiny spot on the shoreline. Topic: Tidal Zones
GETS SWAMPED: Should Walkerville get rid of the swamp and replace it with a new shopping mall? The class learns that the swamp is an important habitat and natural water filter, but the town council’s not convinced until…FLOOD! Topic: Wetlands
TAKES A DIVE: When Wanda discovers that one of Ms. Frizzle’s ancestors was Redbeard the Pirate, she wants to follow the treasure map he left. The map leads the class to a coral reef where they learn firsthand that life there is risky. Topic: Coral Reefs
One bonus episode: The Magic School Bus For Lunch, the class takes a trip through Arnold’s digestive system.
My Take on the DVD
This was a great series of episodes that not only allows you and your kids to learn, but Ms. Frizzle really takes you on an adventure and allows kids to use their imagination and learn everywhere she takes them. What I loved about these episodes as well as the books I have read with my kids is that Ms. Frizzle allows kids to know that learning can be fun and can be found in so many places in the world around them. Learning does not just happen in the classroom, which is so important for them to learn and for parents to support and nurture. I have a six year old and she still loves Ms. Frizzle and this DVD Set just sweetens the stories that we read together even more and makes Ms. Frizzle come to life outside of the pages of the book!
