Study and assemble dinosaur fossils like a paleontologist.
Estimate a dinosaur’s weight by comparing the creature to modern-day objects on a balance scale.
Innovative Learning Approach
The Magic School Bus: Dinosaurs game is designed to give kids an exciting introduction to life science concepts at an early age. Combining science curriculum with engaging gameplay, The Magic School Bus: Dinosaurs game encourages children to take chances and make mistakes. Young learners will hear descriptions about dinosaurs and then put their inquiry skills to the test while searching for creatures. To gain a better sense of how much a dinosaur weighs, children measure them on a balance scale against modern-day objects that are roughly the same weight. They sort and classify dinosaur bones and assemble skeletons using memory and spatial reasoning. And once kids learn about each species, they transform into that creature and soar through the sky in arcade-style games.
Develop a Passion for Science
The Magic School Bus: Dinosaurs game encourages kids to get creative and develop a passion for science. The game helps develop a curiosity for dinosaurs and introduces young learners to life science with a magical time-travel adventure featuring recognizable characters from the hit television show and best-selling book series. Field trips are led by the iconic teacher, Ms. Frizzle, who is famous for taking her students on amazing adventures filled with experiential learning. "Building on children’s passions for dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures, this game presents opportunities to explore fundamental concepts in paleontology. Through engaging activities, The Magic School Bus: Dinosaurs brings together science inquiry skills such as sorting, classifying, observing and reasoning that can transfer to future science learning." - Elizabeth B., LeapFrog Learning Expert
