This book is an informational text that tells the story of one wacky teacher and her students. Mrs. Frizzle is a "mad scientist" sort of teacher that takes her class on a field trip that sends them into the eye of a hurricane!Even though this story should probably be classified as modern fiction, it has too much accurate information to not be classified as informational text. I grew up reading about "The Frizz" and her crazy field trips, and I always enjoyed them!I would have the students make a "survival kit" for a hurricane "field trip." I think they would enjoy imagining our class being able to go on wild rides like this. I would also have them research various weather phenomena, and we could compare the types of storms and make charts to show how each relates to one another.

As Ms. Frizzle's class is on their way to the weather station for a field trip, they stop inside a hurricane. The class is learning all about weather, so Ms. Frizzle thought that this would be perfect for the kids to see firsthand. The children experience hurricanes like no other. Being caught in the center of the hurricane, Ms. Frizzle is telling them what is going on with it- like how it is formed, why they are formed, what they truly are, the parts of a hurricane, and so forth.

Ms. Frizzle and her class go on a field trip to the weather station, but on the way, they stop inside a hurricane. Being thrown around by the winds and rain and lightning, the children experience and learn what hurricanes are and how they are formed. Getting back into the magic school bus safely the kids have much to tell the weather men.

Naturally Mrs. Frizzle can't resist the temptation to take the school bus into a hurricane. The kids experience it from the inside, and Arnold falls into the ocean and experiences it from the outside, too. We learn everything we might want to know about a hurricane while the kids experience it.

My son started reading the books after watching the original show on Netflix.  He loves the books and the videos.  This is his third book so far this summer.  He is learning a lot about science and the world around him.  He was so excited to meet the author at school and they made cool experiments.  The Hurricane book came in handy due to Arthur passing by us last week.

It is a fantastic series. My daugher loves the books and even fashioned her science fair project around the book Inside A Hurricane.
