The Magic School Bus Series - The Journey into the Human Body

Spring 2007 Toys
Ages: 5 & Up
Price: $19.99
With the help of Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus kids, young scientists will learn about the human body. The kit includes a large, life-size illustrated poster of the human body showing body systems, and body parts, a colorful 19-page book with eleven experiments and lots of fun facts about the body including the fact that we have 22 feet of small intestine when uncoiled.

Each experiment focuses on a small feature or function of a body system such as learning why ball and socket joints are lubricated or how the diaphragm and lungs work together. You can make a stethoscope and listen to your heartbeat or discover why you get dizzy after spinning around. Most materials necessary to complete the eleven experiments are included in the kit but a few household items are required to complete the tasks.
