elinor wonders why
Wind in the Web/The Pokey Plan

Tue, Dec 7 9:30 A.M. NHPBS KIDS      

Wind in the Web - Elinor and her friends volunteer to help Mr. Raccoon put up a sign for his bakery, but the sign keeps blowing away in the fall breeze. After Elinor observes a spider in its web and how the wind doesn't seem to affect it at all, she learns things that are wide will catch the wind, but if they have lots of holes like a spider's web, they will not. They try this new idea on their sign and cut holes in it, and it works. Problem solved, and just in time for all the folks to notice the sign and buy Mr. Raccoon's yummy baked treats! The Pokey Plant - It's Plant Day at school and Elinor is super excited to get a beautiful plant to take home. When she gets a cactus, she's a little disappointed at first, but after some careful observations, she and her friends learn lots of cool things about it, like how it grows in the desert, how it doesn't need much water and how the spikes keep it safe. Elinor decides her cactus is the coolest plant ever!
