    This book is chalked full of examples, visuals, and information regarding the human body. IN this book we read about the students taking a trip on The Magic School Bus to the inside of the human body. This would be a great book to use in parts as you discussed the different systems and their functions in the body. At times this series can appear overwhelming to the reader, however, I believe that it could be spaced out appropriately for student's needs and learning.

    Genre: Science FictionGenre Critique: This book is a good example of science fiction through the use of the author's focus on the conflict in the book rather than focus on individual characters and what they bring to the story. Scientific facts and information are intertwined with a regular story line creating an interesting read for readers.Review/Critique: I enjoyed reading this book, and found it a good source of information of facts about the body. It is a book that could be used in the classroom in many different ways to explore the human body and how it runs.Media: Pen and Ink, Watercolor, Color Pencil, and Gouace for paintings.

    The Magic School Bus Inside the Human Body by Joanna Cole is one of the books within the popular Magic School Bus series. This book involves Ms. Frizzle and her class traveling through the human body and learning about its different parts and functions. This is an informational text that would be great to use during a science lesson on the body. The book gives a fictional story along with actual scientific information. It would also be a great book to help teach students how to read the text features of informational texts. I love this series of books and think this is a fun book for children to read and learn from.

    The Magic School Bus tells a fictional story about a class that goes on extraordinary field trips. Although this is a fictional story it has a lot of non-fictional information about the human body.

    Ms. Frizzle brings teaches the students about the human body by traveling through Arnold's body. They learn about the body parts and how each one works by visually seeing it. This book teaches students about the mouth, the stomach, the heart, intestines and so much more!

    Ms. Frizzle brings her class to a museum to learn about the human body. She shrinks the students and bus and enters into one of the students body. They learn all of the body parts and how they work while they are inside of him. This book can help students with imagination, and is a fun way of teaching them about the human body.

    Genre: Science Fiction/ InformationalReview: This is a great example of science fiction because it takes place somewhere that you cant actually go. The technology that Mrs. Frizzle uses to go into Arnold's body does not actually exist today. As the class takes a field trip through the human body they learn a vast amount about how the body works and the various parts. Since there is information that is actually teaching the students about the body it is also considered and informational text. Point of View: This book is told in 3rd person omniscient. We know what Mrs. Frizzle, Arnold and all of the students are thinking all of the time. Unlike other texts were the thoughts are in the main text, this book gives each person a thought bubble as they are going through the human body. This helps to keep the reader interested but also learning about the information that is being presented. Media: Acrylic

    This is one of many books in the classic science series for kids. It's pages are not only filled with scientific information, pictures, and adventure stories, but also comic-book-like arrangements, maps, and interesting facts. This series allows students to delve into the world of science in a fun and light-hearted way. (Watch the television series as a supplement!)

    The Magic School Bus series is a information fictional book. Every book is filled with information on the topic. Not only are the words descriptive but the pictures illustrate and show maps of the topic. For instance, in this book the students make comments about the organs and have educational information in it.The illustrations are not as artistica as they are accurate. The models in the classroom, the outrifts Ms. Frizzel wears all contribute to the topic they are studying. This focuses the reader on one topic and allows their eyes to wonder around the page. Media- water color and colored pencils

    The Magic School Bus carrying Ms. Frizzle and the entire class shrinks and is accidentally eaten by Arnold, and journeys through his body. I liked this book it had alot of information. It was very interesting. I liked it a lot.The students could watch the movie version. And then discuss which body system is their favorite and do a project on it.

    Another crazy and exciting adventure with Ms. Frizzle that lets the student explore the inside of the human body. I liked this book, I always loved watching "The Magic School Bus" on the tv when I was in elementary school.I would read this book while we are studying the human body. The students can use this book to do research on different organs in the body, tell what our Red Blood Cell do, and much more.

    A crazy teacher named Ms. Frizzle takes her class on a wild adventure to the inside of a classmate's body. Inside the students learn about the digestive system and blood cells. This book is exellent for a classroom who is learning about the human body. A teacher could read this book before teaching a unit on the digestive system and then go into further detail that the book covered. This book is a fantasy because nothing in this book could physically happen, although the facts about the human body are realistic. This book could also been an informational book since they are explaining about the body. The setting in this book is necessary for this story because it is all about the human body and the setting actually takes place inside the human body. The setting couldn't be any better.

    I liked everything about this audio book. Try it out!

    I read this book as a read aloud to my 3rd grade class. It went so well with the science lesson which was Rocks and Minerals. The book had so many great facts that went along with what we had been talking about in class. Not only is it educational it is also very entertaining. Most of the students had also seen they video that went along with the book. The students all enjoyed this book!

    This book was a very good book that would teach children alot about the earth and the different layers that make up the earth.

    The Magic School Bus Inside the Earth by Joanna Cole is an Easy Reader. This book in the series takes Ms. Frizzle and her students on an exploration of what our earth is made of. The students learn about what makes up the earth's crust, mantle, outer core, and inner core while seeing everything first hand.I remember reading several Magic School Bus books in elementary school. I always wondered why we couldn't go on field trips like Ms. Frizzle's class.As an extension I would have students brin in rocks and we would try to figure out what type they are.

    The kids in Ms. Frizzle's class have been studying animals' homes. There's a beehive, a wasp's nest, an ant farm — even a beaver lodge right in the classroom. It's a relief when the Friz announces, "Today we start something new." They are going to study earth science.
  • (5/5)
    The Magic School Bus, is a fun and wonderful way to introduce many science topics into a classroom. To begin a lesson on earth science, this book can be a fun way to start off the lesson. Students can read the book with the teacher and then do some of the experiments in the book themselves.

    I would be happy for Ms. Frizzle to teach my boy and take him to the centre of the earth, and in general the panenthusiasm this series (this one is about rocks) brings can only be a good thing, I imagine, even if the necessary reserve of skepticism or sarcasm--the frazzle to the teacher's frizzle--left to the children is so often expressed in the form of lazy TV-style one-liners (it's also a TB show, I know).
  • (2/5)
    I liked it a little bit because it was about the earth, which I don't know alot about. Some of it was weird, when the bus could see and it changed into different things. The kids should have been shaking up and down when they were using the jackhammers.

    I really enjoyed this book and I remember reading it as a kid. This book introduced the human body parts and processes like digestion, the heart, lungs etc. in a fun and engaging way for students. The plot is goofy because they get swallowed by their classmate but along the way the reader is learning about the human body. The language is very descriptive and on the sides of the page is student's answers to questions and it gives the readers fun facts about the human body. The characters are well developed because the teacher Ms. Frizzle is known as "crazy" and always gets them into something strange. The big idea of this story is to inform the reader about the human body in the form of an engaging story that is easy to follow

    This whole collection is a household favorite. Our 7 year-old son really enjoys the books & DVD's! Fun way of presenting a lot of scientific information for young kids. Miss Frizzle is always wearing a wild outfit to go along with their wild adventures in the magical school bus that can somehow transform into about anything. This ride was through the human body, Arnold's, to be a little more specific. Gotta look out for what might be eaten along with the bag of "Cheezy Weezies"! A fun book for a science and/or health class:)

    The book, “The Magic School Bus: Inside the Human Body”, was my favorite book in the entire series. I have read this book countless times! This book is very informational but I never found it to be overwhelming. I enjoyed reading this book for many reasons. I loved how the characters within the book have speech bubbles and thinking bubbles to show what the person is saying or thinking. An example of this is seen on a page with Ms. Frizzle and Arnold. Ms. Frizzle is saying to Arnold, “Your cells need energy to help you grow, move, talk, think, and play.” Arnold has a thinking bubble that states, “Just being in Ms. Frizzle’s class takes all my energy.” I found these text features to be very helpful. The next reason I enjoyed reading this book is because of the wonderful, detailed pictures. The illustrator creates detailed pictures by using a pen and watercolors. For example, on one page, the author describes what the hearts does and the illustrator creates what anatomically correct heart looks like. The illustrator uses arrows to help convey which way the blood is flowing and into which chamber the blood flows through. I found the arrows to be beneficial to the reader because the images make the text easier to understand. The main idea of this story is to inform readers of the many important responsibilities the body and organs have to support life.

    Mrs. Fizzle and her class go on another adventure to the human body. They enter through the nose of a student named Arnold, they learn about the different parts of the human body and once it is done they exit through the nose when Arnold sneezes. Personal Reaction: I think this book is awesome and filled with a bunch of imagination. This would be a great book for kids to learn that they can be creative and think outside of the box even if it is not practical.Classroom Extension: A introduction to learn about the Human Body, they kids could discuss what their favorite body part is in a journal.
  • (5/5)
    I think this is a great book to teach slightly older kids about the human body and biology, in general. I think I agree with the other reviewer about the film quality being superior. I grew up on the books, but I think the films simply told the stories the way the author wanted the books to be told.
  • (4/5)
    In this book Ms. Frizzle takes her students on a trip inside the human body. One of th most fascinating parts is that the body they enter is someone from their own classroom! Ms. Frizzle and the class learns all about the human body and how it works as well as the anatomy of the body. Good to have for science lessons to connect to.
  • (4/5)
    Age appropriateness: intermediate Genre: Science FictionMedia: Watercolors, inkThis is a good example of science fiction because we see the real world overlapping with fictional pieces. The magic school bus’ trip into the human body reveals facts about it but it is impossible for a bus full of children to shrink and travel inside the body. It is a great way to show students the workings of the human body and many projects can branch off of this book
  • (4/5)
    Arnold is once again subjected to Mrs. Frizzle's special treatment as the magic school bus tours his body. The book focuses on how food is digested and turned into energy, though it touches on other body systems.
