The Magic School Bus Explores the Solar System features the irrepressible science teacher, Ms. Frizzle, and her inquisitive class in an out-of-this-world adventure. Kids can take control of the bus and explore the nine planets in our solar system, conducting science experiments and playing games at each stop.
Top Customer Reviews
The "Magic School Bus Explores the Solar System" takes the children through a tour of the nine planets. There are interesting facts and information about each planet and there is a game at each planet. The program is very professional, and follows school bus formula.
We found this to be not one of the better in the excellent school bus series. The games are very similar, all arcade type games, and consequently can get monotonous. However the solar system as a topic, does capture the imagination of many children, and the program is professional, and filled with facts and fun.
If you are looking for the solar system, this is a good buy. If you are looking for the magic school bus, you might consider one of the others in this excellent series.
When I transferred from a Chinese school at age 5 to an American school, my English abilities were subpar, and I could barely communicate with the teachers. My homeroom teacher went as far as to say I was "hopeless". It was not until the "Space" unit at school, that I could begin to understand the curriculum, because of this software and the myriad of facts and pictures about the Solar System. Even now, I could still find new small details about the planets.
Parents must be careful though when buying this product, because not all the astronomy in this program are correct anymore: the number of moons of Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and even Plute have changed.
It's true however, the small games offered in this one are not as complex as the others in the series, and are more "arcade" style. However, the reports written for younger students in the software are excellent. Overall, I would recommend this software to any 5 year old kid interested in space.
