The Magic School Bus Lost in the Solar System
The Magic School Bus Lost in the Solar System - Joanna Cole,Bruce Degen

The Magic School Bus book collection in so informational. This particular book is has a lot of information about the solar system. It has information about the planents, comet, and many other acts. The book begins inside the classroom where the lass is working on a project and, like it always does, it ends up with Mrs, Frizzle and the class all coming on the maic chool bus to travel to outter space. Mrs. Frizzle ends up getting separated from the class and she gives the class clues on what planet she waiting for them on. The books with the class being safe and sound back inside the classroom and full of new information. I would use this book to incorporate science along with readin. I could have the students draw a planet from a basket and create the planet, or have the students create the entire solar system. I would read the book during science n thegrdes 1 - 2 but I would read the book and have the students do the project in the upper grades. This book is a reading level of 3.7.

Ms. Frizzle's Adventures: Ancient Egypt
Ms. Frizzle's Adventures: Ancient Egypt - Joanna Cole Ms. Frizzle, the eccentric teacher from the popular Magic School Bus series, has the summer off and is headed to Egypt on a guided tour. Her fellow travelers have no inkling what's in store when the Frizz shows up at the airport in another one of her wacky signature dresses. Soon enough the group is separated from their guide and find themselves smack in the middle of ancient Egypt. As usual Ms. Frizzle is unperturbed and enthusiastically goes about exploring and educating her new friends.

I can't say I'm as fond of this history-focused series as I am of the more science-centric series I've encountered. I think I miss the interactions and commentary with the students. Even so it's perfectly fine and will likely appeal to children who are familiar with Ms. Frizzle and her zany ways. One thing I *really* liked about this particular book was the side story featuring modern Egypt. That really makes this title stand out and one worth including in a unit study on ancient Egypt.
