“Seatbelts everyone!” Those two words begin every class adventure with Mrs. Frizzle of The Magic School Bus. What started out as a favorite series of books in classrooms around the country became an animated series on public television stations. Now the brand new animated The Magic School Bus Rides Again inspires kids to learn about the wonders of science. Thanks to Netflix streaming, a new generation can join students of Walkerville Elementary School aboard the legendary yellow school bus for field trip fun.
Even though Ms. Frizzle may not look like you remember her from the original animated show and books and you’ll be singing a new version of the theme song along with Lin Manuel Miranda, the show is still full of unpredictable learning adventures. A new generation of kids will be captivated by this show and inspired to learn about science in one of the most fun ways.
The Magic School Bus Rides Again features 13 episodes designed for ages 5+ focus on teaching kids science through out-of-this-world field trips. It’s a great show that encourages active learning during screen time. Unpredictable learning adventures also provide positive messaging for kids about taking chances, getting out there and exploring, keeping an open mind, and never saying never.
In addition to the great education about science topics, here are four things that kids can learn when going on a trip with The Magic School Bus Rides Again, currently available through Netflix.
