Total running time is about 80 mins and the language options are English, Spanish and French. My 5 year-old loves this series and it's a great way to cultivate her interest in science. Highly recommended!
If you're unfamiliar with the premise, the central characters are Ms. Frizzle (a teacher), her class, Liz the lizard and the Bus. Ms. Frizzle takes her class on crazy field trips, where Bus--and sometimes the kids!--experience a transformation so they can get closer to the action. (For example, become a bee or turning into water droplets.)
I recently purchased The Magic School Bus: Catches a Wave for my son to complete our collection. As usual, it's excellent!
This particular DVD has a run time of 80 minutes and features these three episodes:
Wet All Over - The Friz takes her class on a rainy ride through the life cycle of a water drop.
Rocks and Rolls - Friz and the kids go on a rough-n-tumble journey as they see a boulder subject to water erosion.
Ups and Downs - This bubbly trip takes place at the bottom of Walkerville lake!
There's not much in the way of bonus material, as usual (only What Comes Next?: How Fast Can YOu Unravel These Water Mysteries). The languages available are English, Spanish and French.
Highly recommend edutainment for children, especially if you want to introduce or reinforce science concepts!
Total running time is about 80 mins and the language options are English, Spanish and French. My 4.5 year-old loves this series and it's a great way to cultivate her interest in science. Highly recommended!
My girls love this video because they love the water...as do most kids. Each of the three episodes covers an aspect of the water.
I have quite a few Magic School Bus videos and the girls watch it on Discovery Channel in the AM, too. It is colorful, interesting, and highly educational...without cramming the point down their throat.
