Inside the Haunted House
The class is thrilled about its upcoming concert at the Sound Museum ... until they discover that the spooky mansion is more of a thrill than they bargained for. As they creep through the museum's creaky passageways, Ms.Frizzle's class experiences sound first-hand!
I think that this DVD was a scared-out-of-my-pants one, especially in the second episode: In The Haunted House, because it had lots of scary parts and scary noises. I really liked the part where the kids on the show turned into bats, and it was rather cool with it being dark and mysterious, and especially eerie.
The batty thing about this DVD was that the ghostly sound that Carlos called "the call of Cornelia" freaked me out a bit because I'm still afraid of that kind of stuff.
Now, what I learned from this DVD was that was that bats can recognise their babies by listening to the sounds that they make, and that they can 'see' in the dark by using echos. I also learned that sounds travel in waves and that echos are made when sounds bounce off objects. If you think learning is boring, then just wait until you watch this DVD, because scary or not, it is cool.
