Underwater wonder

MICROSOFT'S MAGIC SCHOOL BUS EXPLORES THE OCEAN. Age range 6-10 CD-Rom for Multimedia PC, Pounds 25 from high street shops

In this CD-Rom "Miss" takes her class of five to the seaside. You are in control of their magic bus. You might take them to the kelp forest, the coral reef or even the deep ocean where electric fish hang out. It's magic to click on things and hear the class tell you about dolphins and orca whales. Inside the bus, instruments tell you the sea temperature, its depth, and where you are. It's good but it takes hours. At home you'd say this was value for money but at school you'd wonder where the day went. This isn't something you can search to find facts - you need to play and soak them in.
