PROBLEM, CONFLICT or FAVORITE PART
Mrs. Frizzle wanted to teach the kids about the rainbow. They got stuck inside a rainbow pinball machine. Arnold and Mr. Ruhle couldn’t find the class.
Arnold helped the other kids figure out how to get out by telling them they had to become light. Liz pushed the right buttons to get them out of the machine. I liked learning about how the different colors are made.
I was interested in how the Magic school bus is so magic. It was neat how the kids got into that machine. I like learning about science. I like Magic School Bus and Magic School Bus books. I like learning how things work. I didn’t understand how a teacher could make a pinball machine.
