The Big Race: Winslow and Smooch are racing through the World Tree and race right into Snook! Winslow wants to organize a race to prove he is the fastest animal in the tree, but Snook suggests that they have a relay race and let each animal participate. Winslow agrees and they all move at their own pace in a World Tree relay race! EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Same/Different Animal Characteristics - Different animals have different ways of getting around and move at different speeds. You Are What You Are: When Madge tells Wartz that her flowers couldn't live without water, he wonders if that means that plants and fish are related. Madge explains that just because two things are similar, it doesn't mean they are the same. She and Wartz talk about the unique characteristics of the animals in the World Tree and how even though you may have things in common with others, and though you yourself may change over time, you always stay who you are inside. EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVE: Animal Characteristics and Identity - We are all different in our own special way. We may change as we grow, and we can pretend to be other things, but that doesn't change who we are inside.
