Water You Doing? - While walking through the forest, Elinor and friends come across a stream and decide to make a stone walkway across it. What they didn't realize is that the stones they've moved stop the flow of water, which affects the fish living in a pool downstream. The pool gets a lot shallower, because less water gets to it. After observing how important the water flow is to the fish, they decide to remove their walkway and build a log bridge that goes over the stream instead. Thinking About Blinking - Ari is crowned the blinking champion after winning a bunch of intense staring contests at school. As Elinor and Olive try not to blink themselves, Elinor wonders, "why do we need to blink?" The kids then set out to learn everything there is to know about blinking. After a little help from Ms. Mole and observing a fish with no eyelids, the kids learn that most animals blink automatically to help keep their eyes wet and safe.

Then, they realize a caterpillar IS a baby butterfly. Amazing! Elinor's Circus - Elinor, Ari and Olive decide to put on a circus for all their friends. They each have acts that involve balancing, but unfortunately, they're not great at it. They seek out some tips from their friend, Siggy the squirrel, who is great at balancing.

The kids happily finish their paintings, and when they're all done, Elinor proudly shows off her picture, which shows her true love of nature. The Litterbug - Elinor, Ari and Olive are in the park when they see Mrs. Hippo picking up litter and doing her best to keep Animal Town clean. The kids decide to help her, but when they finish, they realize that the park they just cleaned is full of litter again! That must mean Animal Town has a litterbug. After doing some investigating, the kids realize who the litterbug is -- it's Mrs. Hippo herself! It turns out that one of the bags she was using to collect trash had a hole in it, so she was dropping litter behind her everywhere they went.
