Summary: Ms.Frizzle takes her. Class on a field trip to a frictionless baseball game. She shows how important different forces are to us on a duly basis. The baseball game is hard to play because no one could stop. They eventually call game then get stuck in the book as they are trying to leave. The use the lesson Ms. Frizzle just had to get back home and enjoy a real baseball game.

Personal reflection: I have always loved The Magic School Bus. The adventures that you go on and the different perspective you find is always entertaining.

Extension projects:
1. In a station have examples of the different types of forces. Allow the students to experiment with them and then document what they have learned.
2. Have the younger readers write a story without friction. See what they come up with.
