joining our club.

(Door opening)

>> Sorry I'm late, Explorers.

>> Hi, Explorer Ari.

We've just been welcoming the

newest member of our club,

Explorer Sally Beaver.

>> A new member?


Welcome, Explorer Sally.


>> Thanks for letting me be a

part of the Exploring Club.

>> Of course!

Anyone can join the Exploring


>> Yeah, all you have to do is

love exploring!

>> Our number one rule is...

>> ALL: Exploring is for


>> Uh, hey!

>> Whoops, sorry.

>> I guess there's less room in

the clubhouse now that we


(Olive counting under breath)

...four members.

>> Okay, Explorers, let's go

outside and start exploring!

>> ARI: Wait!

I have something we can explore

inside the clubhouse.

>> Really?

What is it, Explorer Ari?

>> Ta-da!

>> Snails!

>> ARI: Meet Norma and Lou-Lou.

>> OLIVE: Ooh.

>> SALLY: Whoa.

>> I named them after my


They look just like them.

(All giggling)

>> Wow!

Look at their little antennae!

>> ARI: Yup, there they go.

Still going.

>> They sure don't move very


(Ari gasping)

>> Wait a minute.

I have a great idea.

Norma and Lou-Lou can be our

Exploring Club mascots.

>> Ooh!

>> Cool!

>> What's a mac-scot?

(Ari giggling)

>> Mascot.

It's like a pet for the whole


>> Oh, I love pets.

>> And Norma and Lou-Lou will

make perfect club mascots.

They don't take up much room.

>> Okay.

Now that we have mascots, it's

time to go exploring!

>> OLIVE: Wait, Explorer Elinor.

We have one more thing to do.


Clean the clubhouse.

>> Oh, right.

Thank you, Explorer Olive.

Our clubhouse gives us shelter

and a place to plan our


So Explorers must take care of

the clubhouse before they



We cleaned up the clubhouse.

We have mascots, and now, it's

finally time to go exploring!


>> 'Sup, Elinor?

What you guys doing?

>> Oh, hi, Koa.

We're having a meeting of the

Exploring Club.

Want to join?

>> Ooh, sure.

>> TITO: Can I join, too?

>> Sure, Tito.

Come on in.

The Exploring Club is for


>> That's the Explorers' way!


>> Ooh, cool snails.

>> Cool!

>> They're our club mascots.

(Elinor sighing)

>> And they're the only ones who

have done any exploring today.

>> We'll all go exploring,

right after we teach Koa and

Tito the Exploring Club pledge.

(Tito giggling)

>> Okay, everybody.

Repeat after me.

An Explorer is brave!

>> ALL: An Explorer is brave!

>> Explorer?

Did you say "Explorer"?

I love exploring.

>> Then join our club.

>> Don't mind if I do.

(Ari, Elinor grunting)


It's kind of tight in here.

>> Okay, let's start the club


>> BOTH: Any room for us?

>> The Exploring Club is for


(Goat Twins laughing)

>> ELINOR: Hey!

>> ARI: Whoa.

>> Okay, time to start the--

>> Watch it!

>> Whoops, I dropped my crayon.



(Others laughing)

(Everyone talking at once,


Got it.

(Someone chomping loudly)

>> Hmm?

Anybody want some crackers?

>> ARI: I'll have some!

>> ELINOR: Sure.

>> OLIVE: Pass them over.

>> Okay, Explorers, let's get

this pledge started so we can

all go exploring.

An Explorer is--

>> ARI: Wait!

Has anybody seen Norma and


They were just here a second


>> ELINOR: Nope.

>> OLIVE: Sorry.

>> SALLY: They're not over here.

>> Norma, Lou-Lou!

Norma, Lou-Lou!

>> CAMILLA: Oh, no!

Where are they?

>> SALLY: Hello?

>> OLIVE: Where are you?

>> ARI: Whoa!

>> SALLY: We looked everywhere!

>> ARI: Ow!

(Some laughing)

>> ALL: Whoa!





>> That was cool!

>> BOTH: Oh, my.

>> I think we have a clubhouse


>> Yeah.

The club got bigger, but the

clubhouse stayed the same size!


>> Hmm...



Where are you?

>> What are we going to do?

(Tito giggling)

>> ELINOR: Hmm...

>> I wonder if we should get a

bigger box.

>> That would work.

But what if more kids join the


We'll have to get a whole new,

even bigger clubhouse!

>> OLIVE: Hmm...

What if we get another box and

keep this one, too?

Then we can have two clubhouses.

>> ELINOR: That could work, but

then we wouldn't all be


>> You're right, Elinor.

Explorers are a team.

We need to stick together.

>> Yeah.



>> Norma!


Where are you?

There you are.


Silly snails.

It's a good thing you had those

shells to protect you when we

rolled down the hill.

Like you have your own little

clubhouses, just like we do.

>> Did you say Norma and

Lou-Lou have their own


>> Kind of.

See, Norma has a little tiny

clubhouse on her back.

And Lou-Lou, who's bigger, has a

bigger clubhouse.

I guess when Norma grows up,

she'll need a bigger shell, too.

But I wonder how she'll get a

bigger shell.

>> ELINOR: Hmm...

That is so interesting.

We need more observations!


(All laughing)

Let's take a closer look.

Norma's shell gets bigger by

going around in a swirly shape.

It goes around one, two times.

But Lou-Lou's shell goes around

one, two, three, four times.

That's a lot more.

>> One.




The snail shell winds around,

starting small and getting

bigger with each swirl.

>> I think you're right!

When Lou-Lou was a baby, she was

probably little just like Norma.

Then as she got bigger, Lou-Lou

added swirls to her shell to

make it bigger, too.

>> Whoa!

That is so cool!

(Elinor gasping)

>> And that gives me an idea to

solve our clubhouse problem!

We'll add on to our clubhouse,

just like Norma and Lou-Lou add

on to their shells.

>> BOTH: Yeah.

>> Now, that's a clubhouse for


There's space for all of us to

fit inside, and if we get even

more members...

>> We have lots of extra stuff

to build with to make the

clubhouse even bigger.

Well, now, we can finally go

exploring like you wanted,


>> That's okay.

Norma and Lou-Lou showed us how

to add space to our clubhouse,

just like they added space to

their shells.

So we did learn something from

nature, and that's what

exploring is all about.

>> Wait.

Has anybody see Norma and


(Both laughing)

Don't tell me.

They're on my shoulder again,

aren't they?

I knew that.

> Hmm?


>> WOMAN: Come on, Elinor!

>> Coming, Mom!

I just love the town picnic.

What should we do first, Mom?

(Kids laughing)

>> I don't know, Elinor.

Let's see.


Oh, we could do wood carving

with Mrs. Beaver.

(Chainsaw whirring)

>> Awesome!

>> Or Mr. Horse is giving

everyone hayrides.

(Mr. Horse grunting)


>> Oh, yeah!

>> Or we could watch Mr. Cat at

the dunking booth.

(Teeth chattering)

(Thudding, bell ringing)

(Elinor gasping, Mr. Cat


>> Whoo-hoo!

>> OLIVE: Elinor!

>> Huh?


>> Over here!

>> Look!

It's Olive and Ari!

>> Go ahead, honey.

I have to talk to Deputy Mouse.

>> Hi, Ari.

Hi, Olive.

What you doing?

>> Ari is waiting in line for


>> Ketchup?

>> Not just any ketchup.

I'm waiting in line for Ms.

Llama's super-special,

world-famous, awesome ketchup!

>> It's his favourite.

>> Uh, it's everyone's


That's why you have to get in

line early.

I can't wait to put it on my


>> Ooh, sounds yummy.

I want to try it.

Can I join you?

>> Of course.

(Olive sniffing)

(Elinor humming)

>> Um... we're not moving.

>> I know!

>> We've been here forever.

Even that snail is moving faster

than we are.


(Elinor gasping, bee buzzing)

>> Oh.



(Stomach growling)

>> Oh, I hope the line moves


I'm getting hungry.

I heard that Ms. Llama has a new

recipe this year.

It's supposed to be even better

than last year's.

>> Well, I hope it's worth all

this waiting.

Right, Elinor?



>> Hey, Elinor!


>> Hi, Mom!

I'm following a bee!








>> Elinor, where are you?



>> ELINOR: Olive, Ari, stop!

>> Uh-oh.

>> Don't... move.

You are about to get honeyed.


>> BOTH: Ah!

>> Wow.

That's... so... interesting!

The honey is so goopy.

>> (Grunting) I can't... see.

>> It moves so slowly.

>> I wonder why.

>> Yeah.

>> I saw the bee get the juice

from the flower, but that juice

was really watery.

How did the bees turn something

so runny into something so


>> Hmm.

Maybe they cook it, like soup.

>> Yeah, or maybe they squeeze


>> Wait.

I just saw this in my nature


It says here that bees get the


That's the juice from the


And then they bring it back to

the beehive.


>> Whoa.

That's cool.

>> OLIVE: Then the bees use

their wings to fan it.

And it takes out some of the

water that's inside of the

flower juice.

The bees turn the juice into

honey because it lasts longer

and it takes up less space.

>> Oh.

So taking the water out is what

makes honey goopy.

>> That... is...

(Elinor, Olive laughing)


(All laughing)

>> Hmm.

Let's look more closely at these

goopy things.

We need more observations.

>> Ari!

>> Are you okay?

You saved me!

>> My mom always says I'm




(All laughing)

>> How are we going to get all

this goopy honey off you?

>> ELINOR: It's so gooey!

Hmm, I wonder...

If taking the water out makes

the honey goopy and slow, then

maybe putting water back in will

make it runnier and less goopy.

>> I know!

We need water.



>> Taking water out made the

honey goopy, and adding water

back in made it runnier.



>> Sorry.

(Stomach growling)

Uh, guys, I'm glad we figured

that out, but can we go back to

my sandwich, please?

>> The line hasn't moved?

>> No one has gotten their


>> Hmm, I wonder why.

Let's find out.

>> Nobody appreciates quality.

>> But I'm hungry!

>> Mom, what's going on?

>> Oh, hi, Elinor.

Well, Ms. Llama made her

delicious ketchup.

But it's so goopy, it takes a

long time to come out of the

can do.

Can I try?




>> Here, let me.





>> ELINOR: Hmm.

Ari, Olive, I wonder if we could

solve the ketchup problem in the

same way we solved the honey


>> You mean...

>> Add water to it.

>> Yeah.

May we try changing something in

your ketchup, Ms. Llama?

>> Hmm.

I have been working on this

recipe for a long time, to make

it delicious.


But... I'd be willing to let you


>> Yes!

Thanks, Ms. Llama.

Let's try a little bit more.
