Thu, Jul 4 12:00 P.M. NHPBS (11.1)  

Speedy Swimming - The kids go to the local lake for a nice swim and discover that many animals can swim really fast. Elinor then notices something interesting -- ducks, along with other animals that swim, like frogs and turtles, have webbed feet. The three little scientists discover that webbed feet help these creatures get around easier in the water, which makes them swim faster. The kids are inspired by this discovery and use flippers to swim fast all over the lake! Strawberry Jam - It's Elinor's Dad's birthday and he's in great spirits, because they are doing his favorite thing - going camping. But, when Elinor and Olive plan the perfect camping breakfast, they realize they're out of strawberry jam, which he loves. What are they going to do?! The two kids set out to find some strawberries and learn how to tell which strawberries are ripe and ready to be eaten and which are not. The two girls then use the ripe strawberries to make the perfect birthday breakfast for Elinor's Dad.
