Follow That Roly Poly - The Exploring Club is looking for somewhere really cool to explore when they find a Roly Poly that leads them on their next adventure -- under a log! After careful observation, they realize that there's an entire community of critters that lives under logs. It's a like a tiny town! Finally, they put the log back the way they found it and learn that you don't have to look far to find a grand adventure in nature. Rain, Rain Don't Go Away - Elinor, Ari and Olive are in the park playing when their fun is cut short, because it starts to rain. This makes Elinor wonder, "why does it need to rain?" The kids soon observe lots of ways the rain is helpful to plants and animals: it helps snails stay slimy, fills up bird baths, keeps frog ponds full, and keeps the grass green. Now the kids know that a rain shower is very useful to nature. Also, rain makes the best thing ever for kids - PUDDLES to jump in!
