A Classroom Activity Inspired by The Magic School Bus at the Waterworks
by Alexie Basil
When the class goes on a field trip, Ms. Frizzle’s outfit always matches the destination—whether it’s covered in fish for the waterworks, science beakers and eyes for exploring the human body, or thunderheads for exploring the weather system.
In this time-lapse video, you can watch illustrator Bruce Degen bring Ms. Frizzle to life.
The best part? You can have your own copy of Bruce’s drawing! Print out the worksheet below and let your students decorate Ms. Frizzle’s outfit for their dream field trip destinations!
Looking for some artistic inspiration? Check out these dream field trip and outfit ideas by the first graders in the classroom of Vilma Dourvetakis (Griffin Elementary School in Texas) and the kindergartners in the classroom of Kate Kazalunas (Our Lady Help of Christians School in New Jersey).
