The bus transforms to suit the environment and the kids freely explore and share their learning with each other and with Ms. Fizzle, who nudges her students to "make connections" and answer their questions with research. The class pet, Lizzie, a large lizard, accompanies the class on their field trips. The content of the show is appropriate for children from ages 4 to 9 and in addition all the factual content, the children also have a socio-emotional problem to solve that is embedded into the story line.
