A Bridge to Farm/Monkey Fever

Fri, Jul 2 4:30 P.M. NHPBS KIDS      

A Bridge to Farm: When George sees six stranded chicks on an island in a pond it's monkey to the rescue! George tries out several plans. Floating on his back as a monkey life raft is only temporarily successful so George looks for design inspiration in the local railroad and truss bridges. Using marshmallows, toothpicks and playing cards George constructs and then reconstructs a bridge strong enough to support one, then two, and then all six loud peeping chicks - and even the Mother Hen! EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: To show that structures are made up of parts. Monkey Fever: The Man with the Yellow Hat always takes such good care of George, so when the Man comes down with a terrible case of the sniffles, George wants to return the favor. But how? He decides to try his own brand of monkey medicine to nurse the Man back to health, including setting up the bedroom like a real hospital, feeding the Man's cold and starving his fever, and even playing an impromptu game of charades with the pharmacist to get the proper cold medicine. But as George plays doctor for a day, he notices that the Man's symptoms are peculiarly close to those of Betsy's cat, the new mother of five kittens. Could the Man's illness mean he's anticipating feline fatherhood? EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: To illustrate what it's like to be sick with a cold and some ways to take healthy care of yourself when you are sick; get rest, drink fluids, eat healthy food and, if needed, take medicine. To introduce some doctor's tools like thermometers and stethoscopes.
