“Well, we have no money so let’s fish for food,” suggested Griz.

Panda and Polo agreed. So they got their old fishing boat, strapped it to the car and took off. They drove through the forest and finally got to the lake. They unstrapped the boat, put it in the lake and put on their life vests. Next, Griz got in and sat in the driver’s seat with a harpoon next to him and the other two got in the boat. Then Griz, Panda and Polo took off.

“WHAT?” asked all the bears but then Polo, Griz and Panda screamed, “FISH!” They looked inside the boot and there lay a fish. “Dig in,” said Polo and they all ate the fish reward. Their starvation had ended.

Filters showing the leaf color bands

First, we tore up the red leaves. Second, we put them in a test tube. Third, we covered them with 25 ml of rubbing alcohol. Fourth, we put the test tubes in hot water for 30 minutes. Then we put a strip of a coffee filter in each test tube.

Over the weekend the true colors of the leaf separated into bands of colors. Our red leaf showed yellow, brown and pink on the coffee filter.

So Mick went by himself.  He stopped and saw this big volcano.  Mick climbed up and slipped.  He fell and he held onto a rock. He climbed up and up, and on top of the volcano was lava.  He also saw eggs.  The eggs were dragon eggs.

Dragon eggs were lucky.  He was going to take them home.  He heard stomping.  He looked right and left and behind him.  Then he looked forward and saw a gigantic dragon.  Mick took the dragon eggs and ran.  The dragon raised its wings and roared and knocked the eggs out of Mick’s hands.  Mick screamed for help.  It did not work.  Mick slipped out of the dragon’s grip.  He fell on a rock.  He ran quickly and got back home.

On the way he picked up a four leaf clover.  He took it home and put it in his clover collection.  It is safer to collect four leaf clovers instead of dragon eggs.
