The Magic School Bus - Ups and Downs product reviews

Ups and Downs
A monster is sighted in Walkerville Lake! Wanda wants to be the first to search for it under water, but the bus refuses to sink. Meanwhile, Gerri Poveri, a TV journalist who needs to find this monster to boost her sinking ratings, wants Wanda out of the way.

Goes to Seed
The class's garden is going to be featured on the cover of 'Plant It' magazine. Always eager to help, Ms. Frizzle shrinks the bus to the size of a ladybug, and the class is off and flying to find a plant for Phoebe.

Yet again Scholastic brings another enjoyable DVD from The Magic School Bus series. Episode one, Ups And Downs, was cool because I learned that submarines sink and float by having air pushed in and out of big tanks inside the hull. Most of the action came from the parts when Gerri Poveri tries to stop the class fom finding her monster which turned out to be inflatable. The funniest part of that episode was when the monster rose to the surface and knocked Gerri and her chopper over.
Episode two, Goes To Seed, was interesting because I learned that Honey Bees have long tubes that they use for drinking nectar. I also learned that pollen lookes like little balls covered in spikes up close. I think that Goes To Seed was better than Ups And Downs because it was a lot cooler and it showed me parts of a flower that I didn't Know about before. One of the pats of a flower that I didn't know about were the pollen tubes that go down to the seed pod. The most exciting parts of the second episode were when the bus shrunk to the to the size of a spek of pollen (which is where I found out what pollen looked like) and when the bus turned into a Lady Bug. Hop on the magic school bus and explore the deep with this DVD that will shake you like a leaf.
