Get ready for some serious science fun when the Friz takes the kids on an explosive journey into the heart of a volcano!

Hi, I'm Dorothy Ann, one of the kids in Ms. Frizzle's class. When we started learning about volcanoes, I thought we'd just be studying them in books -- but Ms. Frizzle had other ideas. She took us all the way to Hawaii, where we waded through lava and saw

The students from Ms. Frizzle’s class always go on adventures. These adventures take the reader through volcanoes, the human body and or space. In the Voyage to the Volcano Ms. Frizzle took her students inside a volcano to explore how they work. The class explores the volcano with their school that shrinks to a smaller size. This makes the class the perfect size to enter the volcano to explore. The students learn how the center of the earth affects the lava and how the lava forms. The st

Voyage to the Volcano is book in the Magic School Bus series.

In this science based chapter book, the kids and Ms. Frizzle head out in the Magic School Bus to Hawaii to learn all about volcanoes.

It is formatted like the other books in the series. This one has illustrations and sidebars that look like notebook paper reports written by the kids in the class.

In this adventure the bus turns into a raft, a helicopter and a submarine to take the young readers along on a fun trip. Learning about volcano

The Magic School Bus series has always been a favorite of mine. I grew up reading these books so have a soft spot for them now. The magic school bus books are always about the students going on an adventure. The Teacher, Ms. Frizz, takes them on adventures into the ocean, the human body, space, etc., in order to teach her lesson. In this particular book, they went to Hawaii to see a volcano. The students got to learn first hand what lava was and how exactly volcanos operated. These books are usu ...more

We visited Kilauea on Hawaii a few months ago, just like Ms. Frizzle and her crew. I'm glad I didn't get the book before we went (if it had been in the library I would have borrowed it) as it definitely emphasized the drama of volcanoes. My volcano-loving 5-year-old was apprehensive enough before our visit to Volcanoes National Park without worrying about his shoes getting stuck in lava, a sudden eruption enveloping our vehicle, etc.

This was the first Magic School Bus book we'd read and I'm not

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
Our girls adore Magic School Bus and we've read every book we can get our hands on. This is a great chapter book; it is not too long, and still has lots of pictures. It offers a compreshensive look at volcanoes and the dangers of an active volcano.

Our girls loved the fact that the class goes to Hawaii. They really miss the islands and it gave us a chance to reminisce. We never brought them to Volcanoes National Park, so we'll have to do that someday.

Overall, it's an entertaining and exciting st

This book takes the students to Hawaii in a Magic School Bus, where they will wade through lava, tour the Sulfur Pits, visit the Ring of Fire, and experience an underwater volcanic eruption. I would read this book to my students while they were learning about volcano's or during a geography lesson. For a follow up activity, I would have the students correctly construct the three types of volcanoes out of “play dough”. The students would work in small

My girls got a few of these for Christmas and LOVED reading them on their own. I'm really surprised at the things they tell me out of the blue when they are done. "Mom, did you know sometimes a volcano keeps erupting over and over on the ocean floor, and when it gets tall enough it is an ISLAND!" I think a set of all of these chapter books would be nice for our library.

A classroom of children take a field trip with their teacher, Ms. Frizzle, in her Magic School Bus. The bus can morph into a jet, a boat, a sub, a helicopter, and more because, well, it's magic. During the adventure the children learn about and report on volcanoes.

It was a fun story that my children enjoyed.

Ms.Frizzle takes her class to a volcano in Hawaii. The class is trying to learn about volcanoes for a class quiz bowl. Everyone goes into the hot lava and Carlos gets stuck in it. His shoe is now a piece of history!

The kids really liked this book. We had lots of good discussion from it. They want to read more about volcanos. They also had to tell their dad at dinner all the things they've learned about volcanos.

This would be a good book to teach about Volcanos then a fun transition into rocks. You could introduce the students to the different rocks created by molten lava.

Exploding with information, this is a great way to learn about volcanoes. Not too scary, just enough to be suspenseful.
