Magic School Bus Explores the Human Body

Microsoft presents Scholastic's The Magic School Bus Explores the Human Body, a fully animated, interactive multimedia science adventure for kids ages 6 to 10. Based on Scholastic's award-winning book series, this CD-ROM software is designed to entertain and encourage a sense of adventure and exploration, especially about science and technology. The Magic School Bus Explores the Human Body features the irrepressible science teacher, Ms. Frizzle, and her inquisitive class in a fascinating exploration of the human body.
The graphics are not as modern but are faithful to the TV cartoon series; however, what will be great for kids is the learning from playing this game. Here's another review:

From Children's Software Revue
Based on the books and PBS series, this is the first CD adventure of Ms. Frizzle and her class, who take a miniature school bus ride into the human body, learning facts along the way. The adventure begins in the classroom where there are lots of fun animations to click on and a desk with numerous games to play. These games, which vary in quality, present topics such as the four food groups, air pollutants and how neurons work. From the classroom, you can click on a miniature school bus at any time and prepare for your trip into the human body. First, you select from physical characteristics to create your driver's license that tracks your explorations. Next, you begin to travel through a human body with the ultimate goal of finding your way out. Ms. Frizzle and the students reveal facts about bodily organs and systems while you explore. Learning to operate the bus was difficult for our testers, and transitions from screen to screen were very slow. The kids, however, enjoyed the program and especially liked the extensive coverage of facts about the human
body, and its enjoyable, engaging features.
