Ms. Frizzle's adventure this time takes us back to ancient Egypt to learn about its culture and history. Ms. Frizzle and the other people from the plane go around visiting different sites and learning about how ancient Egypt ran.I liked how informative this book was, but at the same time it can be a little too informative at once. Each page is filled with so much information that it is very easy to get overwhelmed.This book would be great to use in a lesson over ancient Egypt. I might have the students make their own pyramids out of Legos as well.
Ms. Frizzles Adventures Ancient Egypt is about a teacher who is going on a trip to Egypt and every time she goes on a trip something interesting happens. When they get to Egypt, it turns in to Ancient Egypt and they go around with different people and learn lots of different things about Ancient Egypt.I didn¿t really like the book that much. I didn¿t think the information it used about Ancient Egypt was very elaborate. I also thought the pictures and pages were too crowded. It had the story and extra information on the same page and it was too crowded. It was hard to stay into the story with all the extra information so close.You could read this story to class during a lesson about Ancient Egypt. You could also have your class dress up in togas and mummies.
In this interesting and funny story, Mrs. Frizzle and the tour group she's with "accidently" get taken back in time without their tour guide. They then experience an ancient Egyptian market, farming, pyramid buiding, partying, and even help make a mummy. The ancient Egyptians are "thrilled" (confused) to have their help. Of course they make it back to the present day.
