1 Ms. Frizzle's class was learning about space. They learned about the planets. They learned about space travel. They learned about the moon. Ms. Frizzle said the best way to learn about space was to go there. The class climbed into the Magic School Bus. Off they went!

Those ten people went to the Johnson Space Center. It is in Texas.
