     This fun resource goes beyond what you know about famous scientists and reveals some quirky, interesting facts about them. Find out little known facts about Zhang Heng, Ibn Sina, Galileo, Isaac Newton, William and Caroline Herschel, Charles Darwin, Louis Pasteur, Ivan Pavlov, George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Edwin Hubble, Barbara McClintock, Grace Murray Hopper, Rachel Carson, Chien-Shiung Wu, James D. Watson and Francis Crick, and Jane Goodall. You will learn that Galileo had a giant ego and if you disagreed with him you were an "idiot"; Isaac Newton's father was illiterate and died before he was born (and his mother frowned on education); Albert Einstein adored music and Edwin Hubble was a terrible driver. Barbara McClintock studied genetics in conjunction with corn, but didn't particularly like corn. She preferred Godiva chocolate! At the end of each chapter are 2-3 interesting trivia related to that person. Please note that while interesting, some personal details about these scientists’ lives may be offensive to conservative families - a parent may wish to preview the content first. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    For all you Ms. Frizzle fans, here's another Magic School Bus Science Kit. You can let your little ones do chemistry like all the students in Ms. Frizzle's science class. This Chemistry Lab comes packaged in a replica of the Magic School Bus (made of cardboard measuring 15" long by 8 ½" high) with storage space and trays for all the kits components. This kit includes most of the hard-to-find materials needed to do experiments: Petri dish, string, peppercorn, balloon, wooden craft stick, piece of iron, ph chart, 25 ml measuring cup, ph paper, pipette, blue and red litmus paper, pencil, safety goggles, plastic measuring spoon, plastic funnel, 3 plastic test tubes, test tube brush, soap, cardboard, clay, white blue, borax, yeast, chromatography paper, foil, liquid dish soap, straw, and ruler.

    51 glossy cards accompany the kit and will help your young chemist get started learning about scientific tools, measurements, acids and bases, and much more. The first twelve cards offer general information, messages from Ms. Frizzle, safety and instructions for the kit. Cards 13 through 51 are experiments. The front of each card gives a list of materials needed, steps to follow for the experiment, and illustrations. An explanation of the experiment is found on the reverse side of the card. You will get to make sticky ice, test materials for acidity, inflate a balloon without blowing into it, make pepper jump, learn about buoyancy, make a speed boat, and much more as you learn with Ms. Frizzle and her class.

    A data notebook is included for recording data in specific lessons. This is a small 5"x 7" stapled booklet with space to record observations. If you are doing the experiments with multiple students, you can have them work in teams to record the information or let them make their own notebook – this one is pretty simple. Use this kit as a chemistry unit study or alongside your curriculum – either way you will have fun with Ms. Frizzle and the gang! ~ Donna

    In the newest offering in the Great Science Adventures Series, young scientists will explore the Earth's surface, including such topics such as the lithosphere, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis and geysers, types of rocks, minerals, fossils, soil, weathering and erosion, caves, glaciers, bodies of water, deserts and more. This curriculum follows the same approach as is presented in the other Great Science Adventure books, such as the student constructing their own Lots of Science Library Books, learning the presented vocabulary words, creating graphic organizers to aid in their activities/investigations, creating your own lab investigations using the Investigative Loop, and then following up with more suggested activities. For a more complete review of this curriculum, please see the review of Great Science Adventures, or The World of Plants.
