     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

    It is sad to think that all of the big pyramids have already been discovered and excavated by archaeologists in the past. Sometimes it can feel like there is very little left to discover. Luckily, we have something that will keep that flame alive within your budding archaeologist - an unexplored pyramid full of treasures waiting to be uncovered! This 5-inch tall pyramid and archaeological pamphlet will engage young explorers in a mission to unlock the tomb and find the hidden contents. The only way into the tomb is to first decipher the hieroglyphs, which show you where to start digging. Supplied in the kit are all the tools needed to complete the dig - a hammer, brush, chisel, plastic peg, sponge, and safety goggles. The pamphlet details some of the history and secrets that are known about the real-life pyramids and also gives kids tips on how to complete their own archaeological digs. A hands-on addition to any study of Ancient Egypt. – Zach

    What better way to peak a young scientist's interest in the weather than by learning with Ms. Frizzle and the gang? This bus-shaped science kit contains loads of fun experiments to try out such as making a tornado in a bottle, capturing a rainbow, building a weather station, and using a sundial. Kit comes with 28 experiment cards, weather station base, wind vane, plastic cup with rounded top, measuring cup, sponge, thermometer, pinwheel, three pieces of clay, peat pellet, paper plate, string, dish, two cardboard circles, bar magnet, three plastic tubes, straw, pencil, index card, petri dish, weather chart, snake model, anemometer, bottle connector, and two sticker sheets. Also included is a data notebook for students to record their findings in. ~Janine

    Even if you live in an urban area, you can still learn all about animal tracks and make your own realistic casts with this kit from Young Scientist's Club. The kit includes plaster of Paris, a brush, sand, two bowls, an animal track game with 80 cards, a poster, stickers, two popsicle sticks, a measuring cup, watercolor paint and an instruction manual. Play the card game to match animals with their tracks (learning 40 animal tracks in the process!), and place matching animal and track stickers on the poster. Several groups of animal tracks are featured at the bottom of the poster – can you tell the "story" behind them? Then get ready to make your own set of animal track casts using the eight included molds and plaster! After you've perfected your casting technique, it's time to look for animal tracks in nature. When you find one, follow the instructions to capture the track using wet plaster and add your "wild find" to your new collection of animal tracks. The full-color instructions walk parent and child through the activities and directions, and provide a place to record answers and observations. This would be a fun kit to explore before taking a hiking, hunting or camping trip; you could even take the animal track matching game on the road with you for the whole family to enjoy! – Jess

    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

    Even young players can start identifying animal tracks with this fun game! Animal Tracks! includes 40 animal track cards and 40 animal cards. The track cards include a black print of the animal track, the animal's name, and the typical size of the track. Animal cards feature a full-color photo of the animal and its name. Directions for three games are printed inside the box lid (Yay! No papers to lose!); Concentration, Bingo, or "Guess the Tracks." If you're studying animals and/or tracking in your science curriculum, these would make nice thick flashcards as well. Any way you use them, players are sure to gain familiarity with the shape of the animal tracks and the animals that make them, while having some fun too! – Jess

A colorfully illustrated instruction manual is included, as is a data notebook students can use to write, draw and record their observations. The kit includes a pH chart, pH tray, gardening tray, pipette, plastic cup, data notebook, ruler, 8 peat pellets, 8 popsicle sticks, plastic terrarium pebbles, charcoal paper towel wicks, construction paper, circular cardboard foil, clay, a wooden dowel, 4 plastic bugs (ant, spider, beetle, and dragonfly), a sticker sheet, 6 packets of seeds (wheat, spinach, beans, zinnia, marigolds, and mixed seeds), a shovel, a rake, a watering can, and an instruction manual. ~ Lisa

    Travel with Ms. Frizzle and her class through the land of microscopy with this lab kit. This kit includes the things that young researchers need to explore the world of tiny things – microscope, blank slides, cover slips, tweezers, collecting vial, 20 colorful experiment and instruction cards, prepared slides of fungi and algae, and a data notebook for recording your own scientific observations all packaged in a cool Magic School Bus-shaped box. The microscope operates on 2 AA batteries (not included) and is made of plastic with 100, 300 and 600x magnification. Although that sounds powerful, this is still a toy and doesn't give the quality and clarity of higher priced microscopes. I spent some time looking at the prepared slides and had some difficulty with the viewing on 600x but got a pretty good view with the 100 and 300x settings. Overall this is a good starter set for beginning to explore with Ms. Frizzle. - Donna
