The Magic School Bus is a classic show that features the most adventuresome teacher on the planet, Ms. Frizzle and her group of students who dutifully follow her approach to educational by taking magical field trips to learn about anything that interests her or them. The students are all curious, but with each one, there is often a personal problem that needs solving and the field trip has a way of dovetailing with the personal challenge to get everything all worked out. The class has been on 52 field trips, traveling in a magic bus that can transform its shape and power source, so it can travel through any environment, from the bottom of the ocean to outermost space. Ms. Frizzle can handle it all, from driving the bus, navigating unfamiliar terrain, tp guiding the children's learning through inquiry. She is undeterred and rarely discouraged and expects no less from her students. Ms. Frizzle is amazingly understanding and permissive in her approach and the children are ambitiously curious about the world as a result. It's not just the bus that's magic.
