Episode Summary

Magic School Bus Gets Eaten
From the award-winning television series The Magic School Bus comes another animated science adventure tale featuring the wacky and mysterious Ms. Frizzle and her class. The episode The Magic School Bus Gets Eaten illustrates the elements of the food chain. Students are introduced to terms such as zooplankton and phytoplankton. The lively lesson begins when the Friz (voiced by Lily Tomlin) and her students take a trip to the beach. Before long, the kids are magically whirling beneath the sea. Segments on feeding reveal all the drama of the predator/prey relationship. There is a strong emphasis on helping youngsters make the connection between their own survival and the food chain. This episode, as all the Magic School Bus videos, is based upon books by Joanna Cole and Bruce Degan. The program is best suited for children ages six to 12.moreless
