Episode summary While planting a seed, Mister Rogers talks about how long it takes for plants to grow. He shows a factory video of how people make orange juice and visits Brockett’s Bakery to find things made out of oranges. In Make-Believe, an “orange-o-gram” arrives from X the Owl’s cousin Mary who’s planning a visit. Lady Aberlin recites a poem about cousins. Mister Rogers talks about the good feeling we get from giving to others, particularly when the receiver really likes the gift.

Extension activity: 

Eat a piece of fruit or vegetable and save the seeds. If you eat more than one type of fruit or vegetable compare them.

Do all big fruits have big seeds? Do all small fruits have small seeds? Sometimes it is easy to find a fruit's seeds. This is true of an apple. Other times difficult to identify a fruit's seeds. This is true of a banana. And other times, fruits have been bred to not contain any seeds at all. This is true of seedless grapes. 

If you have dried beans in your house, these are seeds as well. Ask a grownup to set aside a small variety of dried beans, lentils, peas, whole spices, and other grains (oats, buckwheat, rice, etc.). Glue them to a piece of cardboard or cardstock to create a mosaic.
