    This game is designed for elementary students between ages 6 - 10 (grades 1 - 5). Teachers can use this game as a source in science classes and parents can use it as a fun activity for their children at home. Regardless of the students' enthusiasm for the subject, all children that have encountered the television series or read the Magic School Bus books have been enraptured by Ms. Frizzle and her bus.
    Context of Use
    ...
    classmates, a sufficentsufficient number of
    Before the game begins, the player will see the Magic School Bus, Ms. Frizzle, and the class. Players would get some basic instruction so that they know how to play and the object of the game. Because of the depth and complexity of the concepts to be introduced, the game will take an hour or more to play. However, if at any point the player wishes to stop, he can save and exit the game. Once the player determines what kind of animal he has become and the animal's adaptations, the player will have won the game and can explore other parts of the game. When played in a classroom, the game could help reinforce previously taught concepts. If played at home, it can help introduce or reinforce these concepts. Most of the time, the game would be played by a single person. However, in the majority of classrooms, there are few computers and limited time for the students to play on them. The game could be played by two people working together as a team to win.
    Scope
    ...
    At the school, the player can see the Magic School Bus outside the window. When the player clicks on the bus, the dashboard with a map will appear. The map will label the five deserts and the type. When the player chooses Sahara, the player will be transported to that place. There the player will be magically transformed into either a spiny tailed lizard, a fennec fox, or an ostrich. The player must determine what the animal is and what adaptations it has. Clicking on the plants, the player will learn about acacia, grasses, and olive trees. When the player goes to the Great Sandy Desert, the player will become either a kangaroo, marsupial mole, or thorny devil. The player can also learn about spinifex grass, saltbush shrub, and desert oak. If the player goes to the Gobi Desert, the player could transform into a beetle gecko, or snow leopard. If the player chooses to go to the Great Basin Desert, the bus could turn into a bighorn sheep, a pseudoscorpion, or Western toad. If the player chooses the Antarctic Desert, the player could be transformed into an emperor penguin, leopard seal, or blue whale. The player could also learn about Antarctic hair grass, snow algae, or fungi.

    The player or bus has suddenly changed into an animal. The player must determine what animal he or she has become as well as what adaptations that animal has to survive the desert conditions. Other buttons in the lower right corner gives additional information, takes player to the home screen and takes player to the previous screen.

    This game allows the player to play at his own pace and find new facts that are useful. Just like a puzzle, the player is trying to solve the questions. The students find satisfaction in determining the animal and adaptations. The player has complete control over which deserts to visit and where to click to learn new facts.
    Design Process

    our professor.
    We learned that designing a game is not as easy as it looks from the outside. There are a great many details to remember when designing an electronic game. Most importantly, we realized we must think of everything from the players' perspective.
