Scholastic's The Magic School Bus™ Explores in the Age of Dinosaurs," published by Microsoft® is the fifth in a series of multimedia science adventures designed and developed by M-Pen in conjunction with Microsoft Corporation and Scholastic Inc. Based on Scholastic's award-winning book series, written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen, this adventure lets kids lead the class and the wacky science teacher Ms. Frizzle through seven prehistoric locations set in the three time periods of the Mesozoic era. The user's mission is to piece together clues and snap pictures of the dinosaurs and reptiles missing from Ms. Frizzle's photo album (the missing creatures change with every game). Along the way, kids learn scientific concepts such as the distinctions between dinosaurs and living reptiles, the relationship of modern-day birds to their dinosaur ancestors, and the nature of extinction. While globe-trotting, children also encounter a ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex, learn dinosaur sizes, compose dino noises, dodge falling meteors and piece together dino puzzles.
