In Scholastic's The Magic School Bus, Explores in the Age of Dinosaurs students travel in both time and place. The bus magically transports them back in time to the age of the dinosaurs. It takes them around the globe to visit seven famous dinosaur sites.
Throughout this incredible journey, Ms. Frizzle and her class help your students solve a puzzle. Three photos of prehistoric animals are missing from the Friz's photo album. The animals belong in one of three categories: plant-eating dinosaurs, meat-eating dinosaurs, or non-dinosaurs.
While they explore the dinosaur sites and solve the puzzle, students learn science concepts in highly motivating ways: fascinating reports, amazing facts, fun activities, and fast-action games. The Quick Reference Guide on the next page outlines the content of Magic School Bus Explores in the Age of Dinosaurs. The hands-on activities in this teaching guide reinforce the concepts that your students discover on their trip through time.
