Storyline

In a small grade school, one class has a unique way of learning about the world with their teacher, Ms. Frizzle. To illustrate the science concepts they discuss, they always take a field trip on the Magic School Bus, a magic vehicle that can go anywhere and be anything as the class explores space, the arctic, the human body, and more in order to have a firsthand experience of the principles of science.

Great Education Video/Show
29 August 2012 | by andrew-iceSee all my reviews

I remember watching this show all the time as a kid, and even in current times it's something I would highly recommend to any parent or teacher for their child, or students to watch. It's a creative take on educational purposes that actually pull the child into what's going on. It keeps them actively engaged and is quite amusing to watch as well. The show is really a play off of imagination, which is one of the most creative ways to teach a child every aspect they need to know. It is healthy for brain growth and more.

My daughter saw me scrolling through IMDb and told me to click on "that one" as I was on my way through, so here I am! Thumbs up for The Magic Schoolbus.
