Hal’s Day Off
After a silly mishap leaves Hal alone in the big city (well, he does have his chew-toy Mr. Chewinsky with him), it’s up to Nature Cat, Squeeks and Daisy to make their way to the city and find Hal! Tally ho! Even though Hal is having so much fun site-seeing, he will need to get somehow get home. When Nature Cat, Squeeks and Daisy can’t locate Hal, they turn to some animals that they never even knew lived in the city for help! Curriculum: Different kinds of wild animals can survive and even thrive in city neighborhoods.
Stream and Shout
Nature Cat goes to his Nature Curiosity List for inspiration, and finds it at number 73 “Where do streams begin?” This seemingly simple question leads the gang on an action-packed adventure, as they follow the stream uphill, exploring new environments and meeting all sorts of friendly critters. And they finally find out where the stream begins and are whoa-ho-ho, amazed! Curriculum: Streams start out as runoff from rain or snow and flow into larger and larger bodies of water, eventually reaching the ocean.
When Daisy finds a beautiful flower in her garden that she didn’t plant, it’s up to Nature Cat and his pals to find out where the flower came from. Their investigation leads them through the park and into the woods where the clues show them that seeds can actually travel far distances and grow where they land. And guess how this particular seed wound up in Daisy’s garden? Oh Hal! Curriculum: Some plants make seeds that will travel to new growing places to continue the plants’ cycle of life.
Tally Ho! A Rainbow
After a rainstorm (Nature Cat is sure glad it’s over!) Daisy wants to capture a picture of a rainbow for her Granny Bunny who just loves rainbows! But finding a rainbow is easier said than done, as, Tally Ho, the four friends trek all over in search of that elusive rainbow! Curriculum: Just after a rainstorm, and the sun comes out where you are, you can stand with your back to the sun and look for a rainbow in the sky.
