To Bee Or Not to Bee/Turtle Crossing

Wed, May 15 1:00 P.M. NH Kids (11.5)  

To Bee or Not to Bee - Elinor, Ari, Olive and Koa are having a picnic in the forest, when all of a sudden, a few honey bees come over to check out the kids' food. A nervous Koa gets antsy and starts swatting at the bees because he's afraid of them. This gives Elinor an idea to help her friend get over his fear of bees. After some very careful bee observations, the kids conclude that bees are tiny and a lot more afraid of us than we are of them. They also realize that instead of swatting at bees, you should stay calm and steady when a bee is around, and you are a lot less likely to get stung. Turtle Crossing - Elinor, Olive and Ari are having a blast riding their bikes along the park's brand-new dirt bike-path. Suddenly, they must slam on the brakes: a sweet little turtle is trying to cross the path to get to a small pond on the other side. The kids learn all about how turtles' eggs are laid on land and the babies must make it back to the water when they hatch. The problem is, the dirt bike path is right in the turtles' way. After some careful thinking, the kids work together to move their new bike path around the turtle crossing and save the day!
