"The story begins when Arnold announces he has lost some stones and minerals
that he needs for his science project; Ms. Frizzle suggest a field trip to find
more. Kids can jump into the Magic School Bus, select a geological environment,
and the adventure begins."
"The bus is equipped with the most valuable and fun learning activities of
all. The transformer takes rocks and transforms them into useful items, such as
cement. The Geo-Table lets kids examine and perform tests on rocks and
minerals. And the Earth Kitchen provides 'recipes' for making rocks from
minerals and other materials."
