In response, Ms. Frizzle whisks the class to the Arctic. What’s the freezing Arctic got to do with heat? While the kids try to find out, the bus’s engine freezes and the bus floats away. As the bus moves away, so does the heat from everyone’s body. How can Ms. Frizzle’s kids insulate their body to keep the heat in?
