An animated sun rises in a blue sky. Text reads â€śTVO Kids Power Hour of Learning. Teacher Edition. Todayâ€™s Junior Lesson: Equivalent Fractions.â€ť

A female announcer says, WELCOME TO
TVO Kids POWER HOUR OF LEARNING.
TODAY'S JUNIOR LESSON:
EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS.

A man with a shaved head and thick, dark beard and moustache wears black-framed glasses. He sits in front of a painting of blue mountain silhouettes.

WELL, HELLO, HELLO!
AND WELCOME TO THIS EPISODE
OF THE POWER HOUR OF LEARNING.

Text reads â€śJunior four to six. Teacher Steven.â€ť

Teacher Steven says, I'M TEACHER STEVEN,
AND OF ALL THE PLACES THAT YOU
COULD BE RIGHT NOW,
YOU DECIDED TO DROP IN
AND VISIT WITH ME!
AND I THANK YOU!

NOW I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE,
AND I'M GONNA SAY IT AGAIN,
SO IF YOU'RE THINKING:
"HMM, MAYBE I'VE SEEN THIS
I WANT TO SAY,
"LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY,"
BECAUSE I SAY THIS
ALL THE TIME,
BECAUSE IT'S SUPER IMPORTANT!

WE ARE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT
THE MARVELLOUS WORLD OF MATH,
AND WHEN WE TALK ABOUT MATH,
SOMETIMES IT CAN BE
INTIMIDATING,
AND SOMETIMES WE DO GET THINGS
WRONG FROM TIME TO TIME
WHEN WE'RE TRYING
TO GET THINGS RIGHT.

IT WAS SOMETHING THAT USED
TO HAPPEN TO ME
ALL THE TIME WHEN I WAS YOUNGER,
AND I USED TO GET SO
DISCOURAGED.

HOWEVER, AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE
AND I WILL SAY
MANY, MANY TIMES AGAIN,
DO NOT LET IT BOTHER YOU,
AS THE MORE YOU WORK AT IT,
THE BETTER YOU'LL GET.
AND WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE,
THAT MUST BE WHY NONE
OF MY HATS FIT ME,

[Laugh]

Steven continues, BECAUSE I'VE MADE SO MANY
MISTAKES
BUT I'VE LEARNED SO MUCH.
SO COME ON ALONG WITH ME,
AND AGAIN, THANKS FOR JOINING!

NOW I'M SURE AT SOME POINT
OR BAKING SOMETHING.
MAYBE YOU HAVE SOME EXPERIENCE

HOW TO BAKE AS A KID
BECAUSE FOOD WAS SUCH AN
IMPORTANT PART OF MY LIFE.

MY GRANDMOTHER LIVED JUST DOWN
THE STREET FROM MY HOUSE,
AND SHE'D ALWAYS BE BAKING UP A
STORM OR COOKING SOMETHING.
AND WHEN HER WINDOWS WOULD OPEN,
YOU COULD SMELL IT ALL THE WAY
DOWN THE STREET.

HER FAMILY CAME FROM A COUNTRY
CALLED LEBANON.
AND THE FOOD THAT SHE USED TO
MAKE WAS SO, SO DELICIOUS.
HER AND BOTH OF HER SISTERS
WOULD COOK THESE GREAT MEALS,
AND THEY WERE ALWAYS SO TASTY,
BUT I ALWAYS NEEDED A NAP
AFTERWARDS.

OFTEN AT FAMILY GATHERINGS,
WE WOULD EAT OUR DINNER
AND MY BROTHER AND I WOULD GO
HAVE A SNOOZE IN THE OTHER ROOM.

NOW TODAY, I ACTUALLY HAVE
TWO OF MY GRANDMOTHER'S OLD
BAKING SHEETS.

Steven places two baking sheets on a desk in front of him.

He continues, AND THEY ARE GOING TO HELP ME
TALK ABOUT OUR TOPIC FOR TODAY,
WHICH IS EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS.

THESE ARE FRACTIONS THAT
WE CALL "EQUAL,"
WHICH IS KIND OF LIKE SAYING
THEY'RE EQUIVALENT.

WELL, WHAT I'VE DONE WITH THESE
BAKING SHEETS
TO SHOW YOU WHAT AN EQUIVALENT
FRACTION MIGHT LOOK LIKE
IS I'VE DIVIDED THIS ONE DOWN
THE CENTRE,
AND I'M BAKING SOME DELICIOUS

Steven holds up one of the baking sheets. A line of green tape divides the baking sheet lengthwise down the centre. To the right of the tape, there are two round circles with dots on them. To the left, there is a one half fraction.

Steven explains, THE COOKIES ARE ON HALF
OF THE BAKING SHEET.
WE SHOW A FRACTION OF ONE HALF
AS ONE OVER TWO.

NOW MY OTHER BAKING SHEET
OVER HERE
IS ALSO DIVIDED DOWN THE MIDDLE.
HOWEVER IT'S ALSO DIVIDED ACROSS
THE CENTRE.

Steven holds up a baking sheet with two pieces of green tape intersecting in the middle. One piece of tape goes across lengthwise while the other goes across the width of the baking sheet, creating four squares on the sheet. A round brown circle sticks to the upper right and lower right squares. The upper left square has a two-fourths fraction.

Steve continues, THIS BAKING SHEET HAS
BEEN DIVIDED
INTO FOUR EQUAL PARTS,
WHERE AS THE OTHER ONE IS ONLY
DIVIDED INTO TWO.

WE ARE USING TWO
OUT OF FOUR SECTIONS
ON THIS BAKING SHEET
HOWEVER, DO YOU NOTICE
A LITTLE SOMETHING
BAKING SHEETS?

IF YOU'RE THINKING,
"WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT,
"THEY LOOK AWFULLY SIMILAR,"
AND THAT'S BECAUSE ONE HALF
AND TWO QUARTERS
ARE ACTUALLY EQUIVALENT
FRACTIONS!

THEY LOOK VERY MUCH THE SAME,
AND THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS THIS
ONE HAS BEEN DIVIDED INTO FOUR
AND THIS ONE IS ONLY DIVIDED
INTO HALF.

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THEY CAN'T
BE EQUAL TO THE SAME AMOUNT.
REMEMBER, THE WORD "EQUAL"
AND "EQUIVALENT"
MEAN THE SAME.

NOW I ALWAYS FIND WITH
FRACTIONS,
IT HELPS ME UNDERSTAND THEM
A LITTLE BIT BETTER
IF I TAKE AN EXTRA CLOSE
LOOK AT THEM,
AND WITH THAT IN MIND,
LET'S EXAMINE A FRACTION
WITH A LITTLE SONG.

[Bell rings]

An animated stick figure with a purple head stands at the front of a classroom. He wears a red and blue striped tie. To his right, a stand holds up a television. To his right, a chalkboard has the word â€śShapesâ€ť, with drawings of a rectangle, square and triangle.

The animated instructor says, NOW THAT I HAVE
I HAVE A SUPER IMPORTANT QUESTION.

WHAT IS A TENTH?
A FRACTION, YES, YOU'RE RIGHT.
OKAY, BUT LET'S SAY YOU HAVE
A WHOLE NUMBER
AND YOU DIVIDE IT UP INTO
TEN EQUAL PARTS.
TAKE ON PART OF THOSE 10 EQUAL
PARTS AND YOU GET...

[Loud chirping]

OKAY, LET'S JUST WATCH
THE VIDEO THEN.

The animated instructor turns on the television.

[Energetic music plays]

Two animated grey spiders stand side by side.

The spiders sing, WHAT IS A TENTH
I REALLY NEED TO KNOW
WHAT IS A TENTH
I'LL EXPLAIN IT, LET'S GO
WELL YOU TAKE A WHOLE NUMBER
AND DIVIDE IT UP
INTO 10 EQUAL PARTS
AND THE TENTH
IS WHAT YOU GOT

The number one breaks into ten rectangles.

The spiders sing, SO ONE LITTLE PART
IS CALLED
ONE TENTH
AND TWO LITTLE PARTS
IS CALLED
TWO TENTHS

LET'S TAKE AN
EXAMPLE
OKAY, HERE WE GO

SO YOU HAVE THREE SHAPES
AND FOUR PARTS OF ONE MORE

Four small red rectangles appear beside three long red rectangles. Six small grey rectangles appear beneath the small red ones.

The spiders sing, THAT'S THREE WHOLE NUMBERS
YEAH, ONE, TWO, AND THREE
BUT THOSE FOUR LITTLE PARTS
WHAT WILL THE BE
WELL YOU WRITE DOWN THE 4
AND PLACE IT OVER A 10
WE CALL THIS A FRACTION

YES, THREE AND FOUR TENTHS
YOU CAN SHOW IT AS A DECIMAL
WITH DOLLARS AND DIMES
HERE'S SOME MORE EXAMPLES
TO FINISH OFF THIS RHYME

WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH
WHAT IS A TENTH

[Children giggle]

The instructor says, NOW YOU KNOW WHAT A TENTH IS!
I'VE GOT A JOKE FOR YOU.
SO TWO PARTS OF A WHOLE NUMBER
ARE HAVING A SERIOUS
CONVERSATION.
ONE TENTH WALKS UP AND SAYS,
"WHOA, YOU'RE TWO TENTHS!"

[Drum rim shot plays]

[Laughing]

The animated instructor says, GET IT? SERIOUS, INTENSE
CONVERSATION?
TWO PARTS OF A WHOLE NUMBER?

[Children laugh]

The instructor says, TWO TENTHS?
OH, COME ON! THAT JOKE IS
A COOL FRACTION!

[Bell rings]

[Children cheer]

Steven sings, WHAT IS A TENTH?

[Upbeat music plays]

Steven says, GREAT SONG!
I'VE BEEN SINGING IT FOR
A COUPLE OF DAYS,
AND I HAVE NO DOUBT IN MY MIND
I'M GONNA SING IT
FOR A COUPLE MORE.

EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS,
OR FRACTIONS THAT ARE EQUAL.
AND WE CAN SHOW OUR FRACTIONS IN
A VARIETY OF WAYS.

I JUST SHOWED YOU WITH TWO
BAKING SHEETS
HOW WE CAN SHOW THE SAME
FRACTION WITH DIFFERENT NUMBERS.
AND WE'RE GOING TO DO THE SAME
RIGHT NOW AS WELL.

NOW IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING
WE SEE THIS FRACTION RIGHT HERE
IS A PROPER FRACTION.

Steven holds up a piece of paper with one quarter written on it. Three black rectangles of paper cover the rest of the paper.

Steven continues, THE TOP NUMBER,
WHICH WE CALL THE...
NUMERATOR,
AND PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SAY IT
FOR A LITTLE EXTRA PRACTICE.

NUMERATOR.
IS ONE.

AND THE NUMBER ON THE BOTTOM,
WE CALL THE...
DENOMINATOR.

SAY IT FOR A LITTLE PRACTICE
AS WELL.
DENOMINATOR.

SO MY NUMERATOR
AND MY DENOMINATOR TOGETHER
ARE SHOWING ME A FRACTION
OF ONE OVER FOUR,
OR ONE QUARTER, OR ONE FORTH.

THIS MEANS THAT OUT OF FOUR
EQUAL PARTS,
WE'VE ONLY GOT ONE.
HOWEVER, WHEN WE SHOW AN
EQUAL FRACTION,
ALL WE'RE GOING TO DO
IS MULTIPLY THE NUMERATOR
AND MULTIPLY THE DENOMINATOR.

THE NUMBERS MIGHT LOOK
A LITTLE DIFFERENT
FROM WHEN THEY STARTED,
BUT IF YOU LOOK VERY CAREFULLY,
YOU'LL NOTICE THAT THE FRACTIONS
ARE EQUIVALENT.
AND DO THAT RIGHT NOW.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE OUR
NUMERATOR, THE NUMBER ONE,
AND WE'RE GOING TO MULTIPLY
IT BY TWO.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE
OUR DENOMINATOR, A FOUR,
AND ALSO MULTIPLY IT BY TWO.
ONE TIMES TWO IS TWO,
FOUR TIMES TWO IS EIGHT.

Steven flips a black rectangle and reveals the fraction two-eighths.

He continues, WHICH MEANS THAT
OUR EQUIVALENT FRACTION
TO ONE QUARTER
IS ALSO TWO EIGHTHS.

THESE FRACTIONS ARE CALLED
EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS.

AND IF WE WANTED TO SEE ANOTHER
EQUIVALENT FRACTION,
TO ONE QUARTER,
WE COULD DO THE SAME THING.
LET'S TAKE OUR TWO
AND MULTIPLY IT BY TWO.
LET'S TAKE OUR EIGHT AND
MULTIPLY IT BY TWO.

REMEMBER THE TOP NUMBER IS
CALLED THE NUMERATOR
AND THE BOTTOM IS CALLED THE
DENOMINATOR.

WELL, TWO TIMES TWO IS FOUR,
AND AND EIGHT TIMES TWO IS SIXTEEN.

Steven flips a black rectangle and reveals four-sixteenths.

Steven says, SO FOUR SIXTEENTHS
IS AN EQUIVALENT FRACTION
TO ONE QUARTER,
AND TWO EIGHTS IS ALSO AN
EQUIVALENT FRACTION
TO ONE QUARTER.

THERE CAN BE MANY, MANY
DIFFERENT KINDS
OF EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS,
NOT JUST ONE.
LET'S CHECK OUT ONE MORE
FOR ONE QUARTER.

AGAIN, IT'S IMPORTANT THAT WE
MULTIPLY OUR NUMERATOR
AND OUR DENOMINATOR
BY THE SAME NUMBER,
SO LET'S TAKE OUR FOUR
AND LET'S TAKE OUR SIXTEEN,
AND MULTIPLY THEM BOTH BY TWO.

Steven flips a black piece of paper and reveals eight-thirty-sixths.

Steven explains, OUR NUMERATOR IS GOING
TO BE EIGHT,
AND OUR DENOMINATOR
IS GOING TO BE THIRTY-SIX.

NOW THOSE NUMBERS ARE A LONG WAY
OFF FROM ONE QUARTER,
BUT EIGHT THIRTY-SIXTHS
IS ACTUALLY AN EQUIVALENT
FRACTION TO ONE QUARTER.
AND JUST BECAUSE IT'S BIGGER
DOESN'T MEAN
THAT THEY'RE NOT EQUIVALENT.

I'VE GOT ANOTHER EXAMPLE.

Steven puts down the piece of paper. And holds up another piece of paper with three black rectangles covering part of it. The fraction three-fifths is written on the paper.

He says, LET'S HAVE A LOOK AT
THREE FIFTHS.
THREE FIFTHS.
AND ONCE AGAIN,
I'VE CHOSEN TO MULTIPLY
MY PROPER FRACTION BY TWO.
BOTH THE NUMERATOR AND
THE DENOMINATOR
GET MULTIPLIED BY TWO.

SO OUR THREE
GETS MULTIPLIED BY TWO.
THREE TIMES TWO IS...
IF YOU'RE SAYING SIX,
YOU'RE CORRECT!
AND OUR FIVE GETS MULTIPLIED
BY TWO, AS WELL.
FIVE TIMES TWO IS...
IF YOU SAID TEN, YOU'RE CORRECT!

Steven flips a black rectangle and reveals six-tenths.

Steven says, THREE FIFTHS IS EQUAL
TO SIX TENTHS.
THEY ARE EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS.

LET'S GO AHEAD AND DO THE SAME
THING AS BEFORE.
PRACTICING OFTENTIMES HELPS US
UNDERSTAND SOMETHING,
ESPECIALLY IF IT'S NEW.

SO WE'LL TAKE OUR THREE TENTHS,
EXCUSE ME, OUR SIX TENTHS,
AND WE'RE GOING TO
MULTIPLY IT BY TWO,
JUST LIKE WE DID WITH
THREE FIFTHS.
SIX TIMES TWO IS...
TWELVE.
AND TEN TIMES TWO IS...
TWENTY.

Steven flips a black rectangle and reveals twelve-twentieths.

Steven explains, TWELVE TWENTIETHS
IS AN EQUIVALENT FRACTION
TO THREE FIFTHS.

AND JUST LIKE WE DID BEFORE,
WE'RE GOING TO MULTIPLY THIS
FRACTION
BY TWO AS WELL.

TWELVE TIMES TWO IS...
IT'S GOING TO BE A BIGGER
NUMBER,
BUT THAT'S ALL RIGHT,
I BELIEVE IN YOU.

TWELVE TIMES TWO IS TWENTY-FOUR,
AND TWENTY TIMES TWO IS FORTY.

Steven flips the last black rectangle and reveals twenty-four fortieths.

Steven exclaims, BOY, THAT IS ONE LARGE
PROPER FRACTION!
TWENTY-FOUR FORTIETHS.

WELL, IF YOU CAN BELIEVE IT,
TWENTY-FOUR FORTIETHS IS AN EQUIVALENT
FRACTION
TO THREE FIFTHS.

PRETTY COOL HOW YOU CAN TAKE
A SMALL FRACTION
AND MAKE IT A LARGER FRACTION,
AND THEY CAN STILL BE
EQUIVALENT.

NOW LET'S GO AHEAD AND SPEND
SOME TIME IN THE KITCHEN

[Child says whee]

Logos for TVO Kids and Apartment Eleven Productions appear. Text reads â€śOriginal. Produced in Collaboration with Cirque du Soleil Images.â€ť

[Giggling]

[Birds chirp]

A girl wears her long brown hair in a ponytail to the side of her head. She wears a blue shirt with a Big Top Academy logo on it.

She says, WE'VE BEEN TRAINING
FOR A LONG TIME
AND ARE ALWAYS WATCHED
BY A PRO COACH,
SO PLEASE DON'T TRY ANY OF THE
MOVES YOU SEE US DO.

NOW ENJOY THE SHOW!

[Beep]

[Serious music plays]

A picture of a smiling boy with curly black hair has the name â€śNicholasâ€ť under it. The words â€śConnecting toâ€ť appear over five blue stars. On the other side of the stars is a graphic of a blue and white circus big top with a flag on it. Words beneath it say â€śBig Top Bulletinâ€ť. The stars turn yellow.

[Chime]

Nicholas says, WOW! I'M IN.
IT ACTUALLY WORKED.
CHASE, I CRACKED THE CODE.
WISH YOU COULD BE HERE!
HAVE FUN AT SCUBA CAMP,
SEND ME A PICTURE
FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR.

A girl with braids and a yellow hoodie appears in a square beside Nicholas.

The girl with braids says, NICHOLAS! IS THIS A
BIG TOP BULLETIN
HANG OUT?

Nicholas replies, AND NO ONE'S USING IT.
I'LL TEXT EVERYONE ELSE
THE PASSCODE.

PHOENIX?

Phoenix, the girl with the braids, answers, AMAZING. ME AND MY FAM
IN THE VAN,
TACOS ON THE BEACH,
MOTEL NIGHTS?
CAN'T COMPLAIN!

A boy pops up in a square between Nicholas and Phoenix. He has short brown hair.

The boy says, ZOLTA, THIS HAD BETTER BE GOOD.
SOME OF US HAVE IMPORTANT
THINGS TO DO.

Another square opens and a blonde-haired girl stands beside a trophy.

The girl says, I'M BOOKED AND BUSY, MAX,
BUT I WOULDN'T MISS THIS
FOR THE WORLD.

Max says, APRIL MAY CARTIER,
PERFECT TIMING, AS USUAL.

A square opens between the other four, pushing them to the sides. A blond-haired boy sits in front of a wooden fence.

He says, LOOK AT US,
IT'S LIKE WE NEVER LEFT.

Ella says, AXEL! I'M SO HAPPY TO SEE ANYONE
WHOSE LAST NAME ISN'T PICCOLO.
IT'S WALL-TO-WALL PICCOLOS AT
THE FAMILY CIRCUS,
BUT THERE'S ONE MISSING.

The girl with the ponytail to the side says, I MISS YOU TOO, SIS.

Ella sings, YOU'RE THE BEST, CELESTE

Celeste says, LOVE IT.
BUT I LOVE MY BTA FAM MORE.

A girl with long brown hair appears.

She says, AS FUN AS IT IS BABYSITTING MY
BROTHER AND SISTER,
THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER!

WE'RE FINALLY ALL BACK TOGETHER.

All eight teenagers appear in their own rectangles, with four on the top and four on the bottom.

Phoenix says, HEY, WHAT IF WE MADE THIS
OUR PLACE,
WHERE WE CAN ALL HANG OUT
TOGETHER?

Nicholas says, GREAT, LET'S MEET HERE UNTIL
SCHOOL IS BACK IN.

[Beep]

A woman with long red hair sits in a room with a bright white wall. Bikes lean against the wall behind her.

The woman with red hair says, NOT SO FAST! I'VE SUSPENDED ALL
BULLETIN ACTIVITY.

April asks, MS. MARTEL? HOW DID YOU
GET IN HERE?

Ms. Martel says, WELL, I'M THE HEADMASTER.
I CAN GO ANYWHERE.
AND UNTIL SCHOOL IS BACK IN AND
THERE'S A NEW EDITOR,
ALL BIG TOP BULLETIN ACTIVITY
IS ON HOLD.

Ms. Martel smiles.

She says, IT'S SO NICE TO SEE ALL OF YOU!

She turns off her screen and disappears.

Max says, OOF. EVEN I THOUGHT THAT
WAS HARSH. SEE YA.

Nicholas says,
WAIT! MAYBE WE CAN'T HANG OUT,
BUT WHAT IF WE WORKED ON
THE BULLETIN?
WE COULD PUT OUT AN EDITION.

Max asks, DO WE EVEN KNOW HOW THAT
WOULD WORK?

Celeste says, I DO. I'VE HAD MY OWN SEGMENT
IN THE BULLETIN
SINCE I STARTED AT BTA.

Phoenix says, "SCIENCING WITH CELESTE,"
I'M A FAN!

Celeste smiles and says, THANKS! USUALLY THE EDITOR
ASSIGNS A FEW PEOPLE SEGMENTS
AND THEN GETS TO DO
THE GRAND FINALE.

Axel says, SOUNDS LIKE FUN!
WE'LL HANG TOGETHER,
AND PUT OUT THE BULLETIN
TOGETHER.

April says, SO IT'S ON! CELESTE, WHY DON'T
YOU DO THE FIRST SEGMENT?

Celeste says, OR I COULD DO THE GRAND FINALE.

Nicholas says, NO, YOU SHOULD GO FIRST TO SHOW
US ALL HOW IT'S DONE.

Phoenix says, THEN EVERYONE ELSE CAN
SEND IN VIDEOS.

Rosa says, WAIT, WHAT IF MS. MARTEL
FINDS OUT?

Nicholas says, FINDS OUT WE PUT OUT THE BEST
EDITION OF THE BULLETIN EVER?
BRING IT.

[Cheering]

[Exciting music]

A girl rides a unicycle as she juggles balls. A girl does a handstand on a bench. Nicholas sits on a chair and leans to his side. Text reads â€śNicholas.â€ť

Text reads â€śAprilâ€ť as April leaps into the air, kicking a leg out behind her.

Text reads â€śCelesteâ€ť. Celeste peers through binoculars. She does the splits.

Text reads â€śAxel.â€ť Axel juggles red balls. He balances a chair on his face.

Text reads â€śEllaâ€ť. She wears a pink hat with sparkling white pom poms. Ella dances on a street.

Text reads â€śRosa.â€ť She smiles as she holds a loaf of bread. Rosa spider walks down stairs.

Text reads â€śMax.â€ť Max plays a violin and balances on parallel bars.

Text reads â€śPhoenix.â€ť She puts on a bicycle helmet and bounces off of a ball.

The group stretches and performs gymnastic moves. They spin in hoops and dance.

A circus big top appears with the words â€śCirque du Soleil. Big Top Academy. Schoolâ€™s Out Edition. TVO Kids Presents.â€ť

Equations cover a chalkboard. Text in a white circle reads â€śBig Top Bulletinâ€ť. A circus big top has a yellow flag over it.

Celeste says, WELCOME TO
SCIENCING WITH CELESTE.

[Upbeat music plays]

Celeste wears a white lab coat.

She says, EVEN THOUGH I LOVE MY
CIRCUS FAMILY,
CAMP COEFFICIENT SCIENCE CAMP
IS MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME
HAPPY PLACE.

[Beeps as Celeste lists what she studies]

WHERE ELSE CAN YOU SPEND THE DAY
DOING QUALITY ANALYSIS
OF LAKE WATER, ITS TEMPERATURE,
ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY,
NITRATE, PHOSPHOROUS, POTASSIUM,
DISSOLVED OXYGEN...
I WON'T BORE YOU WITH THE REST.

[Insects buzz]

AND AT NIGHT, I GET TO STUDY
MY FAVOURITE INSECTS.

THE PHOTURIS LUCICRESCENS.
IN LAYMAN'S TERMS, THE FIREFLY.

A photo shows a firefly on a leaf during the day. A second photo shows a firefly glowing at night.

Celeste says, DID YOU KNOW THAT FIREFLIES
AREN'T FLIES AT ALL?
THEY'RE ACTUALLY SOFT-SHELLED
BEETLES.

AND YOU MIGHT FIND THIS GROSS
OR AMAZING,
BUT THE BIGGEST FIREFLY CAN GROW
TO THE SIZE OF YOUR PALM.

[Sparklers sizzle]

Celeste holds sparklers.

Celeste says, BUT MY FAVOURITE PART
IS THE FLASHES OF LIGHT YOU SEE
IS THE FIREFLY LANGUAGE OF LOVE.

[Energetic music plays]

Celeste moves the sparklers in the air as she dances.

Celeste says, MY FIREFLY DANCE HAS ATTRACTED
ANOTHER INSECT.

A CARNIVORE
FROM THE CULICIDAE FAMILY

[A mosquito buzzes]

Celesteâ€™s arms flail in the air as she swats at a mosquito. She runs away.

[Buzzing]

An animated slice of pie and a cupcake with pink frosting shake beside a photo of Rosa. Text reads â€śRosaâ€™s Limonade.â€ť Rosa puts a leg up on a kitchen island and stretches.

[Upbeat music]

Rosa says, I'D RATHER BE DOING CIRCUS
TRICKS WITH MY FRIENDS,
BUT NOW THAT SCHOOL'S OUT,
I'M LEARNING HOW TO BAKE.
SO TODAY I AM MAKING A LEMON
LAVENDER LOAF.
LAVENDER IS A FLOWER AND A HERB.

Rosa sniffs a sprig of lavender.

[Sniff]

[Sigh]

She says, WHICH MAKES IT GREAT FOR BAKING.
AND WHAT GOES GREAT WITH
LAVENDER? LEMONS.

Rosa juggles lemons.

Rosa says, WHOOPS! BACK TO BAKING.

She puts the lemons in a bowl.

Rosa says, FIRST, WASH YOUR HANDS FOR 20
SECONDS.

[Water runs]

Rosa says, THEN CREAM THE BUTTER.

[Hand mixer sound]

[Slam of bowl hitting the counter]

Rosa says, THEN ADD THE SUGAR.

[Whoosh]

She says, THE FLOUR.

[Whoosh]

Rosa says, MILK.

[Whoosh]

Rosa says, THE BAKING POWDER.

[Whoosh, tapping]

She says, LEMON JUICE.

[Pouring sound]

[Whoosh]

Rosa continues, THE DRIED LAVENDER FLOWERS.

AND EGGS.

[Whoosh]

[Crack]

Rosa says, AND MIX!

[Whirring of hand blender]

She says, AND NOW...
IT'S READY TO POP INTO THE OVEN.
Rosa puts a loaf pan in an oven and closes the oven door.

[Slam]

Rosa says, I TIE MYSELF UP IN KNOTS WAITING
FOR THE FIRST BITE
OF THIS TASTY TREAT.

Rosa does a slow cartwheel on the island. She planks and does the splits.

IN MY HOUSE,
WE ALL LIVE CIRCUS TWENTY-FOUR SEVEN,
SO IT'S OKAY WITH MY FOLKS TO
PERFORM ANYWHERE.
AND OF COURSE,
I CLEAN OFF THE COUNTER

[A timer beeps]

Rosa exclaims, MY FAMILY IS GOING TO LOVE THIS!

Rosa sniffs the loaf of bread.

[Sniffing]

[Beep]

Pictures of Nicholas and Celeste have blue stars between them and the words â€śConnecting Toâ€ť over the stars. The stars turn yellow.

[Ding]

Celeste says, HEY, WHAT'S UP?
YOU WANTED TO TALK?

Nicholas says, YEAH, I MEAN, HAVE YOU GUYS EVER
USED THE BULLETIN
TO DO A BIG CIRCUS PERFORMANCE
WITH EVERYONE?

Celeste says, WHAT? NO.
THE BULLETIN IS A SOURCE
OF INFORMATION, NOT A STAGE.

Nicholas says, YEAH, BUT WHAT IF WE MADE
IT A STAGE?
I MEAN, WE HAVE THE AUDIENCE.
EVERYONE FROM BTA IS WATCHING.
LET'S AIM BIG!

Celeste says,
WITHOUT PERMISSION.
THE BULLETIN HAS RULES.
I'VE SUGGESTED COOL
IDEAS BEFORE,
BUT THEY'VE ALL BEEN
TURNED DOWN.

Nicholas says, BUT NOW WE'RE IN CHARGE,
THERE'S NO ONE TO TELL US NO.

Celeste says, EXCEPT FOR MS. MARTEL.
IF SHE DOESN'T LIKE THIS, SHE
COULD KICK US ALL OUT OF HERE
AND SHUT DOWN THE BULLETIN.

Nicholas says, THEN THIS IS OUR ONE SHOT TO
TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
WHAT DO YOU SAY?

Celeste says, I SAY... I'M NOT THE EDITOR,
SO I CAN'T STOP YOU.
GOOD LUCK.

Big Top Bulletin logo appears.

[Spinning sound]

Nicholas says, THE BIG TOP BULLETIN IS A
BELOVED INSTITUTION

[Energetic music plays]

Nicholas says, STUDENTS HAVE RELIED ON IT FOR
NEWS AND INFORMATION FOR YEARS.
SOMETHING NEW.

Nicholas say,s THERE'S NEVER BEEN A CIRCUS
PERFORMANCE IN ANY EDITION
OF THE BIG TOP BULLETIN,

Nicholas spins and catches the basketball. Max runs forward. Alex spins in a hoop. Max flips on a trampoline. Axel juggles balls as he rides a unicycle. Phoenix bounces on a unicycle. They both wave and high five.

[Slapping hands]

Two girls skip.

[Rope snaps]

Two girls spin and twist in hoops.
Phoenix rides her unicycle. The two girls skip. They spin.

[Snapping as rope hits a floor]

Max flips and climbs out of the trampoline. Axel balances his unicycle on his chin.
Girls twirl in hoops. Axel rides his unicycle. He lifts it and strums it like a guitar.

The group claps.

[Applause]

Axel says, THAT WAS SO FUN!

Rosa says, I'VE MISSED PERFORMING
WITH YOU GUYS.

Phoenix says, IT WAS REALLY GREAT.

Nicholas says, CELESTE, WHAT DID YOU THINK?

Celeste says, I THINK MS. MARTEL'S
GONNA FREAK,
BUT WHO CARES?
THAT WAS THE BEST EDITION
I'VE EVER BEEN PART OF.
THANKS, NICHOLAS.

Ms. Martel says, I THOUGHT I TOLD YOU GUYS
THE BIG TOP BULLETIN
IS OFF LIMITS.
ENTIRE EDITION.
WHO WAS THE EDITOR?
WHO'S IN CHARGE?

Ella says, WHO CARES?
WASN'T IT AWESOME?

Celeste says, WE TOOK OUR TRADITIONAL SCHOOL
NEWSPAPER TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
NOW WE CAN PERFORM TOGETHER
WHEN WE'RE APART.

Ms. Martel says, IT DOESN'T MATTER.
YOU GUYS BROKE THE RULES.
THE BIG TOP BULLETIN
IS A STORIED INSTITUTION
WITH A HISTORY OF EXCELLENCE.
SO I WILL ASK YOU ONE MORE TIME,
WHO WAS THE EDITOR?

April, Axel, Rosa, Nicholas, Phoenix, Celeste, Ella and Max raise their hands.

Ms. Martel says, SERIOUSLY, GUYS?

Phoenix says, WE'RE ALL RESPONSIBLE.
WE DID THIS TOGETHER.

Celeste says, I KNOW THIS ISN'T HOW
THE BULLETIN USUALLY WORKS,
BUT SOMETIMES YOU NEED
TO BREAK THE RULES
TO MAKE THINGS BETTER.
LIKE PUTTING CIRCUS
INTO A CIRCUS SCHOOL NEWSPAPER.

Ms. Martel says, YOU MAY...
HAVE A POINT.
BUT PUT SOMEONE IN CHARGE.
PICK AN EDITOR.
BECAUSE EVERY BULLETIN EDITOR
HAS GONE ONTO CIRCUS GREATNESS,
AND IF THE BULLETIN SLIPS BELOW
MY THRESHOLD OF EXCELLENCE,
THE EXPERIMENT IS OVER.

Nicholas says, THANK YOU MS. MARTEL.

Celeste says, WE WON'T LET YOU DOWN.

Phoenix says, THIS IS GOING TO BE AMAZING!

Ella says, I CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!

Celeste says, AND WHEN WE DO,
I HAVE SO MANY IDEAS!
AS EDITOR, I'M GOING TO MAKE
SURE EACH EDITION
IS BETTER THAN THE LAST.

Max says, WAIT, WHO SAID YOU'RE
THE EDITOR?
WHAT IF I WANT TO BE THE EDITOR,
WHICH I DO.

April interrupts, SO DO I. I'D BE GREAT AT IT.

Axel says, SAYS YOU! HOW FAIR IS THAT?

Rosa says, IT'S NOT.

April rolls her eyes.

Nicholas says,
THEN WE'LL MAKE IT FAIR.
LOOK, WE'LL ALL TAKE TURNS
AND VOTE ON WHO HAD THE BEST
EDITION AT THE END.
THE WINNER GETS TO BE
THE EDITOR?

April says, AND I'LL SQUEAK BY
IN A COME-FROM-BEHIND VICTORY
AND WIN! GO ELLA!

[Laughter]

[Upbeat music plays]

[Popping]

The teens turn off their computer monitors.

[Typing and beeping]

End credits roll.

[Upbeat music plays]

Teacher Steven sits at his desk in front of the painting.

Steven says, THANKS, GANG!
YOU GUYS SURE KNOW HOW TO MAKE
THE BEST OUT OF TIME AT HOME.

WELL, SPEAKING OF TIME AT HOME,
I'VE GONE AHEAD AND I'VE CREATED
THREE DIFFERENT FRACTIONS,
BUT THEY'RE ALL CONNECTED
AS WELL.

I'M GOING TO SHOW YOU THE
FRACTIONS INDIVIDUALLY,
AND THEN I WILL SHOW YOU
THEM TOGETHER
TO SHOW YOU HOW
THEY CAN BE EQUIVALENT
FRACTIONS.

THE FIRST FRACTION THAT I HAVE
IS ONE THIRD.
NOW IT'S IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER
THAT THE ONE THIRD
IS ANY ONE OF THESE SECTIONS
RIGHT HERE.

Steven gestures to a piece of paper. Lines divide the paper into three sections, each section has the fraction one-third written in it.

Steven continues, MY WHOLE YELLOW PAGE
HAS BEEN DIVIDED
INTO THREE EQUAL SECTIONS.
THREE IS OUR DENOMINATOR.
ONE IS OUR NUMERATOR.
AND AS I SAID,
IT COULD BE THIS ONE,
THIS ONE,
OR THIS ONE.

HERE'S A QUESTION FOR YOU.
IF I WAS TO TALK ABOUT
THESE TWO SECTIONS
UP AT THE TOP,
WHAT WOULD THESE TWO REPRESENT?

WELL, IF I HAVE ONE THIRD,
AND ANOTHER ONE THIRD,
MY TWO ONES MAKE TWO.
SO THESE TWO SECTIONS
COULD REPRESENT TWO THIRDS.
AND AS WE'VE TALKED
ALL THREE OF THESE SECTIONS
MAKE UP ONE WHOLE.

LET'S LOOK AT ANOTHER FRACTION
THAT IS SIMILAR IN NATURE.

Steven holds up a green piece of paper. Lines divide the paper into six sections. Each section has the fraction one-sixth written in it.

Steven explains, THIS FRACTION IS ONE SIXTH.
SIMILARLY TO ONE THIRD
IN THAT IT HAS LINES THAT
GO HORIZONTALLY,
DIVIDING IT INTO THREE EQUAL
SECTIONS.
BUT THEN IT HAS A STRAIGHT LINE
THAT RUNS VERTICALLY
RIGHT UP THE MIDDLE,
DIVIDING THOSE SECTIONS
INTO SIX EQUAL PARTS.

THIS PART RIGHT HERE
IS ONE SIXTH OF THE WHOLE.
ALL OF THESE SIXTHS COMBINED
MAKE ONE WHOLE.

Steven points to the two one-sixths at the top of the page.

Steven says, IF I WAS TO TALK ABOUT THESE
TWO RIGHT HERE,
THE SAME AS I TALKED ABOUT THE
ONE THIRD PAGE,
THESE WOULD REPRESENT
TWO SIXTHS.

AND THESE TWO?
THEY WOULD REPRESENT
FOUR SIXTHS.
AND IF I TALK ABOUT ALL OF THEM,
ONCE AGAIN, WE WOULD BE
REFERRING
TO ONE WHOLE.

LET'S CHECK OUT ONE MORE.
THIS ONE, YOU'RE GONNA HAVE TO
LOOK EXTRA CAREFUL,
BECAUSE MY SIXTHS HAVE NOW
BEEN DOUBLED
INTO TWELFTHS.

Steven holds up a blue paper. Lines divide the paper into twelve sections. Each section has the fraction one-twelfth written in it.

TWELVE EQUAL PARTS.
NOW JUST LIKE MY ONE THIRD PAGE,
IT WAS DIVIDED
INTO THREE EQUAL PARTS.
THEN I DID THE SAME THING AS
I DID WITH MY SIXTHS,
AND SPLIT THOSE ONES AS WELL.
AND RAN A VERTICAL LINE
UP THE MIDDLE
TO CREATE TWELVE EQUAL PARTS.

THIS ONE RIGHT HERE,
OR THIS ONE HERE RIGHT,
OR EVEN THIS ONE, OR THIS ONE,
OR THIS ONE,
ALL REPRESENT
ONE TWELFTH.

LIKE OUR OTHER FRACTIONS,
TWO REPRESENT TWO TWELFTHS.
FOUR REPRESENT FOUR TWELFTHS.
AND SO ON AND SO ON.

LET'S DO A LITTLE COMPARING NOW.
IF I HAVE MY
ONE THIRD PAGE RIGHT HERE
AND MY ONE SIXTH PAGE
RIGHT HERE,
YOU WILL NOTICE
THAT MY SECTION HERE

Steven points to a section representing one-third of the yellow paper.

He continues, IS EQUIVALENT TO MY SECTION
HERE.

Steven points to a section representing two-sixths of the green paper.

Steven says, AND ALL THE WAY DOWN MY PAGE
AS WELL.

ONE THIRD OF THIS SIDE
ALSO REPRESENTS A SIMILAR NUMBER
ON THE OTHER SIDE.

AND IF I LOOK AT MY TWELVES,
THEY WILL DO THE SAME, TOO.
NOW MY THIRDS CAN FIT
INTO MY SIXTHS
AND MY SIXTHS FIT INTO
MY TWELFTHS!

AND THAT'S HOW EQUIVALENT
FRACTIONS WORK.
WE FIT THE ORIGINAL FRACTION
INTO THE LARGER NEW FRACTION.
AND THAT'S A LITTLE MORE

NOW WE'VE BEEN COMPARING
FRACTIONS A LOT TODAY,
BUT THAT'S NOT THE ONLY THING
WE'RE GOING TO COMPARE.

TUMBLEWEED,
AS WE COMPARE
A HAMSTER'S WEIGHT IN SEEDS.

[Dramatic music]

A red book appears with â€śTumbletown Talesâ€ť written in gold. A picture of a hamster appears above the words.

Tumbleweed yells,
TUMBLETOWN TALES!
STARRING ME, TUMBLEWEED!

FINALLY, IT'S THE MOMENT
I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR!

Tumbleweed watches a white rabbit and a hamster on television.

The rabbit says, WELL, IT'S THAT TIME, BEIGE.

Beige says, OH, THAT'S RIGHT, ROB!
TIME TO DRAW THIS YEAR'S
WINNER
IN SEEDS--

Rob interrupts,
OR SEED-RELATED PRODUCTS.

Beige continues, --CONTEST! OH, I'M SO EXCITED MY
HAIR IS STANDING ON END!
ARE YOU EXCITED, ROB?

Rob says, I'M EXCITED, BEIGE.

Beige says, SUPER. I BET OUR VIEWERS
ARE EXCITED AS WELL!

[Beige laughs]

Tumbleweed says, YES! I AM EXCITED!
DRAW FOR THE PRIZE!
DRAW FOR THE PRIZE!

Beige says, YOU KNOW, ROB, MOMENTS LIKE
THESE REMIND ME
OF WHY I BECAME A TELEVISION
CELEBRITY.

Beige says, WHEN I WAS IN THE THIRD GRADE,
I PLAYED ALICE IN OUR...

Tumbleweed says, NO, I CAN'T TAKE IT!
DRAW FOR THE PRIZE!

Beige says, AND I WORE A BLUE TUTU...

Rob says, I THINK THEY'VE HEARD YOUR STORY

BEFORE, BEIGE.

Beige says, THE TUTU? 'CAUSE I STILL HAVE IT
AND I STILL FIT INTO IT.

Beige spins a drum.

She announces, IT IS TIME TO DRAW THE WINNER
OF THIS YEAR'S
OR SEED-RELATED PRODUCTS
CONTEST!

[Drum roll]

Beige says, AND THE LUCKY WINNER IS...
TUMBLEWEED!

Tumbleweed exclaims, I WON? I WON?!
I WON! I WON! I WON!
I WON! I WON!

[Laugh]

[Dramatic music]

Rob says, DON'T FORGET, YOU HAVE UNTIL THE
TO COME DOWN TO THE STUDIO

[Gasp]

[Scream]

(Screaming continues)

Tumbleweed drives a red car past mountains.

[Screams]

Tumbleweed parks his car in front of the television station.

I'M HERE! I'M HERE!

Beige laughs.

[Laugh]

Rob says,
THAT WAS FAST.

Tumbleweed asks, SO WHAT KIND OF SEEDS
OR SEED RELATED-PRODUCTS
CAN I CHOOSE FROM?

[Harp music plays]

A red curtain rises, revealing containers of seeds.

Beige says,
WELL, WE HAVE EVERY KIND
IMAGINABLE,

Tumbleweed exclaims,
WHAAA?

Beige says,
CHOOSE ANYTHING YOU WANT,
AS LONG AS THE AMOUNT

Tumbleweed says, WOULD YOU LOOK AT ALL THE
DIFFERENT KINDS OF SEEDS
OR SEED-RELATED PRODUCTS
THAT I CAN CHOOSE FROM!
I WONDER WHAT I WANT...

I WANT SUNFLOWER-- NO, WAIT.
MAYBE SOMETHING EXOTIC LIKE...

Beige says,
WELL, IT'S SUPER EASY!
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO
IS GET ON THAT SCALE!

Rob says,
HM, THIS IS GONNA TAKE AWHILE.

Tumbleweed says, OKAY, JUST LET ME GET IN
THE SCALE HERE.

Tumbleweed climbs on to a weighing pan.

Rob says,

Avocado seeds drop into the other weighing pan.
Tumbleweed says,
TWO. KEEP 'EM COMING.
THREE!
THAT'S-- I'M GONNA HAVE

WAIT A MINUTE, WE'RE DONE?
MY WEIGHT IS ROUGHLY EQUIVALENT
THAT'S NOT GOOD!

Beige says,
YOU ARE ONE HEAVY HAMSTER!

Tumbleweed says, NO, I'M NOT! I'M JUST FLUFFY.
LIKE, UM, LIKE CORN?

A bag of corn drop on to the other weighing pan.

Beige says,
ABSOLUTELY! HERE WE GO.
ONE LITTLE BAG OF CORN.

Tumbleweed says, I'M STILL NOT GETTING
A LOT OF STUFF
THAT IS EQUAL TO MY WEIGHT.
LIGHTER?

Beige says, WELL, I DO HAVE THESE HERE,
THEY'RE CALLED "CHOSES VERTES,"
AND THEY ARE VERY LIGHT,
BUT I'M NOT SURE YOU'RE GONNA
LIKE THE TASTE,
BECAUSE IF YOU ASK ME, THEY--

Tumbleweed says, CHOSES VERTES! THAT SOUNDS
FANCY, LET'S TRY THAT!

Rob says, UH, THEY AREN'T EXACTLY
THE MOST TASTY.

Tumbleweed says, WELL, HURRY UP! I'M STARVING!

Beige says, YOU'RE NOT LISTENING, BUT OKAY!
IF YOU SAY SO.

A bag of green seeds drops on to the weighing pan.

Tumble weed says, WHOA! ALMOST!
THIS... THIS MIGHT BE IT.
CHOSES VERTES? HAH-HAH!
SO MANY CHOSES VERTES,
I'LL TAKE IT!

[Laugh]

He falls off the scale.

Tumbleweed says, WHOA! WHOA!

Tumbleweed stands in his living room.

Tumbleweed says, NOW TO SAMPLE THE SWEET
TASTE OF VICTORY
WITH THESE CHOSES VERTES.

Tumbleweed nibbles a chose vertes.

UGH! THESE DON'T TASTE
VERY GOOD!
WHAT ARE THESE?

Tumbleweed turns a label from the French side to the English side.

He says, CHOSES VERTES IS FRENCH FOR...
GREEN THINGS?!
WHAAAA?!

Tumbleweed wails, NOOOOO!

The TVO Kids logo appears.

[Upbeat music plays]

Steven says, WOW! TUMBLEWEED!
THOSE ARE SOME SENSATIONAL
SEEDS.

WELL, WE'VE CONTINUED TO TALK
AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT
ALLOWS US TO VISUALIZE
AND SEE AND CREATE
EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS
IS ACTUALLY MULTIPLICATION,
AND TO SHOW YOU A LITTLE BIT
I WENT AHEAD AND GRABBED ONE OF
MY GRANDMA'S OLD PANS
TO GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE.

Steven holds up a round metal pan with a line of green tape across the centre. A round piece of paper sticks to the centre. It says one-half.

Steven says, SO I HAVE GONE AHEAD
AND I HAVE DIVIDED MY CIRCULAR
PAN HERE IN HALF,
SO MY FRACTION THAT WE'RE GOING
TO WORK WITH,
AND CREATE
EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS WITH,
IS GOING TO BE ONE HALF.
AND REMEMBER,
IT'S ONE HALF OF A WHOLE.
ONE HALF OF ONE.

SO WHEN WE MULTIPLY WITH
EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS,
WE NEED TO REMEMBER WE ALWAYS
NEED TO MULTIPLY
BY THE SAME NUMBER.

AND THE NEXT FRACTION GETS
MULTIPLIED BY THE SAME NUMBER,
AND THE NEXT, AND THE NEXT,
AND THE NEXT.
THAT'S HOW IT'S DONE.
AND THAT'S HOW WE ENSURE THAT
THEY REMAIN EQUIVALENT.

IF WE USE DIFFERENT NUMBERS
TO MULTIPLY BY,
IT WOULDN'T CREATE AN EQUIVALENT
FRACTION.
I THINK IT MIGHT ONLY CREATE
SOME CONFUSION.

SO LET'S HAVE A LOOK AT
OUR ONE HALF.
AS WE'VE DONE BEFORE,
WE'RE GOING TO MULTIPLY IT
BY TWO.

THE NUMERATOR
GETS MULTIPLIED BY TWO
AND THE DENOMINATOR
ALSO GETS MULTIPLIED BY TWO.
WELL, ONE TIMES TWO IS TWO.
AND TWO TIMES TWO IS FOUR.
SO TWO QUARTERS IS ACTUALLY
GOING TO BE
OUR NEXT EQUIVALENT FRACTION.

Steven puts a sticker on the top half of the pan. It reads two-forths.

Steven continues, AND REMEMBER, AS I SAID,
WE NEED TO MAKE SURE
THAT WE CONTINUE TO MULTIPLY
BY THE SAME NUMBER
TO GET OUR EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS.

LET'S POP ON UP TO TWO QUARTERS.
AND REMEMBER,
THAT IS EQUAL TO ONE HALF.
TWO IS GOING TO GET MULTIPLIED
BY WHAT NUMBER?

THAT'S RIGHT, WE'RE ALWAYS GOING
TO MULTIPLY BY TWO.

NOW IN THIS CASE,
WE'RE USING TWO.
IF YOU WANTED TO USE
A DIFFERENT NUMBER,
ON A DIFFERENT EQUIVALENT
FRACTION,
YOU COULD DO THAT
IF YOU WANTED TO.

BUT IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE,
WE'LL ALWAYS MULTIPLY BY TWO.
SO TWO TIMES TWO
IS FOUR.
AND FOUR TIMES TWO
IS EIGHT.

WHICH MEANS THAT OUR NEW
EQUIVALENT FRACTION
TO ONE HALF IS GOING TO BE
FOUR EIGHTHS.

Steven attaches a four-eighth sticker to the pan beside the two-fourths sticker.

HMM. LOOKS SHARP.
LET'S KEEP GOING.

WE'RE NOW GOING TO TAKE
OUR FOUR EIGHTHS
AND MULTIPLY IT AS WELL
BY TWO.
FOUR TIMES TWO
IS EIGHT!

HMM, THAT'S THE SAME NUMBER
AS OUR DENOMINATOR.
WELL, EIGHT TIMES TWO IS...
DIG DOWN DEEP...
DO THE MENTAL MATH!
EIGHT TIMES TWO IS 16.

Steven attaches a sticker with eight-sixteenths on it to the bottom half of the pan.

He points at it and says, WHICH MEANS OUR NEW EQUIVALENT
FRACTION IS GOING TO BE EIGHT SIXTEENTHS.
AND REMEMBER, THAT IS AN
EQUIVALENT FRACTION
TO ONE HALF.

WE'RE GOING TO DO IT
ONE MORE TIME,
BUT I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT YOU
CAN CONTINUE
TO MULTIPLY THE EQUIVALENT
FRACTIONS TO ONE HALF
OVER AND OVER AND OVER
AND OVER,
FROM THE TIME THAT THE SUN
GOES UP
TO THE TIME THAT THE SUN
GOES DOWN.

AND THEY WOULD STILL BE
EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS
AS LONG AS YOU WERE MULTIPLYING
BY THE SAME NUMBER.

IN OUR CASE,
WE'RE MULTIPLYING BY TWO.
LET'S DO ONE MORE FOR A LITTLE
EXTRA PRACTICE.

EIGHT TIMES TWO IS...
HERE'S A HINT, WE JUST DID IT.
EIGHT TIMES TWO IS SIXTEEN.
AND SIXTEEN TIMES TWO IS...
MENTAL, MENTAL MATH!
IF YOU SAID THIRTY-TWO, YOU ARE CORRECT.
OUR NEW EQUIVALENT FRACTION IS
SIXTEEN OVER THIRTY-TWO.

Steven attaches a sticker to the pan with the fraction sixteen over thirty-two.

He continues, THAT FRACTION IS THE SAME--
WELL, IT'S NOT THE SAME.
IT IS EQUIVALENT TO ONE HALF.
WHAT A GREAT EXAMPLE!
NOW A LOT OF EXAMPLES HAVE BEEN
GIVEN TODAY WITH FOOD.
THAT MUST BE WHY I'M SO HUNGRY.

BUT EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS ARE
ALSO PART OF PLAYING MUSIC.

LET'S TAKE NOTE OF MUSICAL
FRACTIONS OVER ON
MATH XPLOSION.

A plus sign explodes into different math symbols. A man with short auburn-coloured hair and a red beard smiles.

[Rap music plays]
Children sing, WHAT IS IT?
IT'S NOT A TRICK
IT'S MATH EXPLOSION

JUST FOR YOU, COOL AND NEW,
MATH EXPLOSION

The auburn-haired man sings,

HEY, DID YOU KNOW
SONGS ARE FULL OF FRACTIONS
I WONDER IF YOU KNEW
IF YOU EVER WROTE A SONG
IT'S MATH THROUGH AND THROUGH

THE LENGTH OF EVERY NOTE
IS A FRACTION OF THE BEAT
LIKE A WHOLE NOTE,
A HALF NOTE, A QUARTER NOTE

NEAT
A WHOLE NOTE'S THE LONGEST
AND LASTS A WHOLE BAR
TWO HALVES MAKE A WHOLE,
ARE YOU WITH ME SO FAR?

FOUR QUARTERS IN A WHOLE
KEEP THINGS GROOVING ALONG
'CAUSE FRIENDS,
WITHOUT FRACTIONS
THERE'D BE NO SONGS

The manâ€™s image gets bigger and smaller. He stands behind a table.

The man says, DID YOU KNOW
THAT JUST LIKE MATH,
MUSIC USES COUNTING, PATTERNS,
AND FRACTIONS?

[Harp chord plays]

[Rock music plays]

[Popping]

SONGS HAVE SECTIONS CALLED BARS.
AND EACH BAR HAS DIFFERENT TYPES
OF NOTES.
YOU HEAR SOME TYPES
OF NOTES A LOT.

The man blows in a kazoo.

[Kazoo note]

He says, LIKE WHOLE NOTES,
PLAYED FOR A WHOLE BAR.

[Blows two shorter notes]

He says, HALF NOTES,
PLAYED FOR TWO BEATS.

(Blows four notes rapidly)

[Electric guitar plays]
The man says, AND QUARTER NOTES,
PLAYED FOR ONE BEAT.
IT DOESN'T MATTER HOW QUICKLY
OR SLOWLY YOU PLAY A SONG.

IF IT HAS A FOUR/FOUR TIME SIGNATURE,
WHICH MEANS FOUR QUARTER NOTES
IN EACH BAR,
YOU CAN PLAY TWO HALF NOTES,
OR FOUR QUARTER NOTES

IN THE SAME TIME IT TAKES
TO PLAY ONE WHOLE NOTE.

THERE ARE SO MANY STYLES
OF MUSIC OUT THERE,
AND THEY ALL USE WHOLE, HALF
AND QUARTER NOTES.
AND THEY'RE ALL ABOUT THE RHYTHM
OF FRACTIONS.
LET ME SHOW YOU HOW TO DO IT.

[Snapping fingers]

A metronome appears on a screen beside the man.

[Ticking]

He asks, YOU HEAR THE METRONOME?

MUSICIANS USE THEM ALL THE TIME
LET ME SHOW YOU.

[Rock music plays]

Music notes slide past the metronome.

The man sings, WHOLE NOTES,
ONE, ONE
HALF NOTES,
ONE, TWO
QUARTER NOTES,
ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR
ONE, TWO, THREE FOUR â™Ş
LISTEN TO THE SOUND
OF FOUR QUARTERS AS A START
ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR.
ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR.
A SONG IS A SUM
OF ALL ITS PARTS .

[Exhaling]

QUARTER, QUARTER,
QUARTER, QUARTER
HALF, HALF
WHOLE
NOW YOU'RE COUNTING TIME!
QUARTER, QUARTER,
QUARTER, QUARTER
HALF, HALF
WHOLE
NOW YOU'RE KEEPING THE TIME!

The man pushes a button and an animated opera singer appears on a screen. She wears a purple dress and a Viking helmet with horns on the side. A vase sits on a small pedestal table beside her.

A male narrator says, SINGING A WHOLE LOT OF WHOLE
NOTES CAN BE POWERFUL.
IT'S TRUE THAT A SINGER CAN
SHATTER A CRYSTAL GLASS
BY SINGING A LOUD NOTE
FOR A LONG TIME.
THE NOTE DOESN'T HAVE
TO BE HIGH,
IT JUST NEEDS TO HAVE
THE SAME FREQUENCY
AS THE NOTE YOU WOULD GET
IF YOU TAPPED THE GLASS
WITH A FORK.

THE SINGER'S VOICE CAN MAKE
THE GLASS VIBRATE,
THEN SHATTER. BOOM!

[Shattering glass]

The auburn-haired man stands by a table.

[Energetic music plays]

He says, SO WHY NOT WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS,
OR FORM A BAND WITH FAMILY
AND FRIENDS?
AND SPIN THOSE WHOLE, HALF,
AND QUARTER NOTES.
MUSIC WITH FRACTIONS,
IT'S NOT MAGIC.

Animated lips appear in front of the manâ€™s mouth.

The lips say, IT'S MATH!

[Imitating scratching sound]

[Explosion]

Text reads â€śIn association with TVO Kidsâ€ť.

Steven sits at his desk.

He says, TOTALLY ROCKING!
WELL, AS WE WRAP UP
OUR POWER HOUR
FOR TODAY,
I DO WANT TO ALLOW YOU
TO REMEMBER
THAT EQUIVALENT FRACTIONS
ALSO MEANS EQUAL.

AND JUST AS WE'VE SPENT LOTS OF
TIME LEARNING TODAY,
IT'S IMPORTANT TO SPEND
JUST AS MUCH TIME
HAVING FUN AS WELL.

I HOPE THAT YOU HAVE HAD AN
EQUAL AMOUNT OF FUN
AND LEARNING WITH ME TODAY,
AND I DO HOPE TO SEE YOU
NEXT TIME.

The TVO Kids logo appears.

[A child says whee]

The BGM Incorporated logo appears.

[Giggling]

Monica says, MY NAME IS MONICA,
AND MUSIC IS MY THING.

Monica has long, straight black hair. Monica pretends to play a trumpet.

[Imitating trumpet sound]

She says, I'M INVITING PRO MUSICIANS
TO MY BACKYARD
FOR EPIC JAM SESSIONS.

Women sing, ABSOLUTELY

Monica says, ALONG FOR THE RIDE
ARE JUNIOR JAMMERS
WHO LOVE TO MAKE SOME NOISE.

[Guitar music plays]

Monica says, TOGETHER THEY INSPIRE ME TO
MAKE DIY CRAFT-STRUMENTS
FOR THE BIG PERFORMANCE.

Monica blows into a pipe.

A woman says, COUNT US IN!

Three children count,
THREE, TWO, ONE!

Monica says, INSTRUMENTS IN HAND,
WE ALL JOIN IN.
[Wooooo]

Monica says, AND MAKE SOME
BACKYARD BEATS!

[Soothing music plays]

Monica stands on one leg as she stretches. Sheâ€™s wearing a dark pink tie-dyed shirt shirt and blue denim overalls.

Monica asks, HAVE YOU EVER BEEN SO EXCITED
THAT YOU JUST CAN'T RELAX?!

Monica runs to her craft table. Bright curls of ribbon lie on the table. A red and white checkered mug is by Monicaâ€™s hand.

Monica says, I'VE GOT A FRIEND WHO'S POPPING
BY WHO'S TOURED THE WORLD,
HAS AN AWARD-NOMINATED ALBUM,
AND IS JUST SO COOL!

[Exhale]

Monica picks up the mug and points to it.
She says, CHAMOMILE. I GOT IT
'CAUSE IT SAYS "RELAXING."

Monica sips from the mug.

She says, NOPE, STILL NOT RELAXED.

[Energetic music]

Monica sits down and picks up a book. She opens it.

[Page turns]

[Saxophone note sounds]

Monica exclaims, ALISON, SHE'S HERE!
ALISON YOUNG, MY FAVOURITE
SAXOPHONE PLAYER!

A red-haired woman has a yellow rose in her hair. She wears a blue denim jacket and carries a saxophone.

Alison says, HI, I'M SO EXCITED TO BE HERE
FOR THE JAM SESSION.

Alison and Monica high five.

[Hands slapping]

[Wooo]

Alison and Monica hit hands and elbows. They kick their feet and spin.

[Clapping]

Alison plays her saxophone.

[Saxophone music plays]

Monica says, ALLISON, I'M SO STOKED
YOU'RE HERE,
AND I'M SO STOKED YOU BROUGHT
I'M DOUBLE STOKED!

Alison says, THERE'S NOWHERE I'D RATHER BE.

Monica says, YOU WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS, YOU
HAVE AN AWARD-NOMINATED ALBUM,
AND YOU CARRY AROUND
THIS HEAVY INSTRUMENT.
WHICH OF THOSE THREE
IS THE HARDEST?

Alison says, IT TOOK ME ABOUT TWO OR THREE
YEARS TO WRITE MY ALBUM,
TWO WEEKS IN THE STUDIO
TO RECORD IT,
AND YEAH, THIS IS
PRETTY HEAVY. HERE.

Alison passes her saxophone to Monica.

Monica says, WHOA, THAT'S A LOT HEAVIER
THAN I THOUGHT.

Monica gives the saxophone back to Alison.

Monica says, WHEN I MAKE MY CRAFT-STRUMENT
SAXOPHONE, I'M GOING TO MAKE IT
A LOT LIGHTER.

Alison says, GOOD IDEA.

Monica asks, CAN YOU BLOW SOME INSPIRATION
MY WAY?

Alison plays her saxophone. Monica looks delighted as she sways to the music.

[Saxophone music plays]

Monica says, I'M SO EXCITED FOR OUR JAM!
I CAN'T WAIT!

A rock with purple hair stands behind a drum set.

The rock with purple hair says, WHOA! THE SAXOPHONE JAM SESH
LATER IS GOING TO BLOW YOU AWAY!

A rock with green hair and an electric guitar says, MOUTH-STRUMENT!

(Imitating saxophone)

Rocky blows off a tree stump.

The drum player says, I DIDN'T MEAN ACTUALLY
BLOW HIM AWAY!

I'M OKAY!

The guitar player says, UH, LET'S JUST CHECK OUT
MONICA'S DIY CRAFT-STRUMENT.

[Peppy music plays]

A straight piece of pipe and four smaller curved pieces lie on the table. Three funnels, electrical tape, scissors, a drill and a hacksaw lie to the side.

[Guitar music plays]

Monica says, I KNOW, GUYS. YOU'RE GOING,
"WHAT IS ALL THIS STUFF?"
JUST WAIT. RIGHT NOW, IT KINDA
LOOKS LIKE JUNK.
BUT IN A FEW MINUTES,
I WILL BE ROCKING OUT
ON MY VERY OWN SOON-TO-BE
AWARD-WINNING,
WORLD-TRAVELING, ALBUM-RECORDING
SAXOPHONE!

[Saxophone note plays]

[Upbeat music plays]

BUT TODAY, I'M BRINGING YOU
A PLASTICKY,
RECYCLABLE-Y SAX.

Monica puts her long black hair back in a ponytail.

UH, OKAY, NOW IT'S TIME
TO GET TO THE BEAT.
FIRST, PLUG THE GLUE GUN IN.
I'M GONNA NEED IT LATER.

Monica points to her parts on the table as she names them.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED. PVC PIPE,
FOUR PVC ELBOW JOINTS,
A PLASTIC FUNNEL,
A PIECE OF PLASTIC,
TAPE, HACKSAW, FILE,
SCISSORS, HOT GLUE, AND A DRILL.

THE MOUTH PIECE.
CAN'T PLAY THE SAX WITHOUT THAT!

I'M DRAWING A DIAGONAL LINE
AT THE END OF THE PVC PIPE.
I NEED IT AT THIRTY DEGREES.
THIRTY-WHAT, YOU SAY?

Monica measures thirty degrees.

[Ding]

She says, SEE? THAT'S THIRTY DEGREES.
NOW BACK TO THE MOUTH PIECE!

NEXT I'M MOVING ONTO
THE HACK SAW,
TO CUT ALONG THE THIRTY DEGREE LINE.

Monica puts on safety goggles.

She says, THIS CALLS FOR SAFETY GOGGLES,
AND SOME MUSCLE.

(Record scratching)

Monica looks serious as she says, THIS IS FOR PROS ONLY.

[Saw]

Monica says, ONCE THE END IS CUT OFF,
IT'S TIME TO FILE.
ROUND OFF THAT TAIL END
OF THE PIPE.

I WANT IT SMOOTH
SO IT'S COMFY TO PLAY.
NOW I HAVE TO CUT THE PIPE
INTO DIFFERENT LENGTHS,
WHICH I'LL USE FOR THE SAX.

THE SOUND OF THE SAX...

(Saxophone music plays)

Monica continues, WILL BE EFFECTED BY THE LENGTH
OF THIS MAIN PIECE,
SO I CAN'T MAKE IT TOO SHORT
OR TOO TALL.
SO HOW TALL IS TOO TALL?

Monica stands on a chair behind the table.

She says, GUYS, THIS IS TOO TALL!
DO NOT MAKE A SAX THIS BIG!
YOU'RE BEING RIDICULOUS.

I GET IT, THE SAX IS EXCITING.
BUT LET'S NOT GET CARRIED AWAY.

Monica smiles.

[Rock music plays]

[Saw]

Monica saws the straight pipe into two pieces. She draws lines on it with a black marker.

Monica says, NOW IT'S REED-MAKING TIME.
THIS GUY IS THE VIP OF THIS
CRAFT-STRUMENT BUILD.
THE VIBRATIONS FROM THE REED
WHEN PLAYING
IS WHAT MAKES THE SOUND
OF THE SAXOPHONE.

TO MAKE A REED, I'LL CUT OUT A
PIECE OF THIS PLASTIC HERE.
I'M CUTTING THE REED TO
BE THE SAME SIZE
AS THE OPENING OF THE
MOUTH PIECE.

GOOD STRONG SCISSORS ARE
A MUST FOR THIS.
I'M LEAVING A BIT
ON THE END HERE
TO HELP WITH THE TAPING.
IT LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE TAIL!
TAPE TIME!

PLAYER'S TIP, GUYS.

THEY'RE IMPORTANT.
GONNA NEED 'EM
FOR SAXOPHONE RIFFS.

[Imitates saxophone]

Monica says, NOW TO TAPE THE REED INTO
THE MOUTH PIECE.
JUST TAPE THE BOTTOM,
THE TOP SHOULD BE FREE.
IN FACT, I WANT A GAP BETWEEN
THE MOUTH PIECE OPENING
AND THE CLEAR PLASTIC.

Monica puts a piece of black tape across part of the top of the reed.

Monica says, FINALLY!
GIVE IT A GO.

Monica blows into the reed.

[Honk]

Monica looks disappointed as she says, IT'S COOL. JUST...

She adjusts the tape and blows into the reed again.

[Louder honk]

Monica says, WOW!
I JUST HAD TO REPOSITION IT
TO GET THOSE VIBRATIONS RIGHT.
I WASN'T WORRIED.
SOMETIMES YOU'VE JUST

OKAY, I WAS A BIT WORRIED.

Monica says, I'VE GOT THIS LONG,
BUT NOT TOO LONG PIECE
WHERE THE HOLES
WILL EVENTUALLY BE,
ND TWO SHORTER PIECES OF PIPE.
NEXT, CONNECT THEM WITH PVC JOINTS.
NOW THAT'S LOOKING MORE
LIKE A SAX.

Monica gives two thumbs up. She picks up her pipe and blows into it.

[Honking]

Monica says, HUH, IT DOESN'T SOUND VERY
SAXOPHONY YET.
I WONDER WHAT'S MISSING.

[Fingers tapping]

Monica says, HOLES!
I NEED SOMEWHERE TO PUT MY
FINGERS, DON'T I?
LET'S PLUG IN THAT DRILL!

IF ONE OF THE HOLES ENDS UP
IN THE WRONG SPOT,
I'LL BE SINGING THE BLUES!

[Blue music plays]

She says, WELL, THE SAX WILL.
UNLESS YOU PREFER JAZZ.

[Jazz music plays]

Monica says, IN WHICH CASE...
MONICA, FOCUSING.

[Upbeat music plays]

Monica uses the marker to make dots on the pipe.

Monica says, BACK TO THE CRAFT.
I'M DRILLING HOLES ALONG ONE
SIDE OF THE LONGEST TUBE
WHERE MY FINGERS WILL GO.
GOTTA LINE THEM UP JUST RIGHT.
THE CLOSER THE HOLES ARE
TO THE MOUTH PIECE,
THE HIGHER THE PITCH WILL BE.
SO I'LL GIVE THAT MOUTH PIECE
SOME SPACE.

[Drill]

Monica picks up her pipe.

She says, PERFECT. I CAN ALMOST HEAR THOSE
SMOOTH SAX SOLOS NOW.

[Bird tweets]

Monica says, OH, WAIT. THAT'S A BIRD.
NICE TUNES, LITTLE DUDE!

Monica picks up her glue gun.

She says, BET YOU ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT
THIS GUY, DIDN'T YOU?
FINAL STEP!

Monica says, IT'S TIME TO GET AMPLIFIED.
FOR THAT, I'LL USE THE MOUTH
OF THE FUNNEL.
I'M CUTTING OFF THE WIDE PART
AND CAREFULLY HOT-GLUING IT
TO THE END OF THE PIPE.

Monica glues the funnel in place. She holds up her saxophone.

Monica says, LOOK AT THAT!
ALL GLEAMING AND PERFECT.
IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.
I THINK I NEED A MOMENT.

[Piano music plays]

Monica takes a deep breath as she places the saxophone down.

She says, OKAY, MOMENT'S PASSED.
NOW I JUST WANT TO PLAY THIS
CRAFT-STRUMENT.

Monica plays her creation.

[Plays a tune]

Monica says, I'M GOING TO DO A LITTLE
DECORATING.
EVERY SAX DESERVES SOME SPARKLE.
WHILE I DO THAT, YOU CAN CHECK
IN WITH ASHLEE.
JUST POSSIBLY, SHE MIGHT BE AS
EXCITED ABOUT THE SAX AS I AM.

[Upbeat music]

Ashley stands in a yard. She wears a striped pink shirt and keeps her long brown hair out of her face with a headband.

Ashlee says, I'M ASHLEE.
I CAN PLAY THE ALTO SAXOPHONE.
I FIRST STARTED PLAYING THE
SAXOPHONE A YEAR AGO.

[Whoosh]

Ashlee says, HERE ARE FIVE FAST FACTS
I USED TO HAVE TWENTY-ONE HAMSTERS
AND NOW I HAVE A TURTLE.
I'M AN ARTIST.
I WANT TO BE A VETERINARIAN.
I'M A TOTAL BOOKWORM,
AND I COLLECT MY BABY TEETH.

BONUS FACT! I LOVE PLAYING
THE SAXOPHONE.

Ashlee plays a saxophone in a back yard.

[Saxophone notes]

Ashlee pretends to play a saxophone.

[Imitates a saxophone]
[Whoosh]

Ashlee says, THIS IS MY SAXOPHONE.
SO THIS IS THE BODY,

THIS IS THE NECK, AND THE BLACK
PART IS THE MOUTH PIECE,
AND THIS IS THE REED,
AND THIS IS THE LIGATURE.
AND THIS IS WHERE THE SOUND
COMES OUT.

Ashlee plays her saxophone.

[Saxophone notes]

Ashlee says, IT'S A REALLY COOL INSTRUMENT,
AND I LOVE WHAT SOUND IT MAKES.
WHEN YOU BLOW OUT,
IT MAKES YOU FEEL FREE.

Ashlee dances.

Ashlee says, WELL, AT LEAST FOR ME.

[Whoosh]

Text says, â€śCentre Stage.â€ť

Ashlee says, I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO
MY NEXT PERFORMANCE.

Ashlee plays her saxophone in front of a fire place. Four people sit on a sofa and nod their heads to the beat.

[Saxophone plays]

[Cheers]

Ashlee says, I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE BEFORE
ON STAGE.
WHILE I WAS PLAYING THE
SAXOPHONE ON STAGE,
I ACCIDENTALLY PRESSED
THE NOTE WRONG,
AND THEN I GOT PRETTY CONFUSED.
BUT I RECOVERED REALLY WELL,
AND I DON'T THINK THE AUDIENCE
EVEN NOTICED.

[Whoosh]

Ashlee says, MY DREAM IS TO KEEP PLAYING THE
SAXOPHONE FOREVER.
MAKE SOME NOISE!

[Whoosh]

Ashlee plays her saxophone.

[Saxophone music plays]

[Cheers]

Ashlee bows.

Rocky says, AND THAT'S HOW ASHLEE ROLLS.

The guitar plays says, THE JAM WITH ALISON, ASHLEE,
AND MONICA IS COMING UP NEXT!

The drum player says, IT'S GOING TO BE A SMASH HIT!

Rocky says, YEAH! ROCK OUT!

Rocky bangs his guitar on the tree stump.

The drum player says, I SAID "SMASH HIT," ROCKY.

The guitar player says, NOT "SMASH IT!"

[Exiting music plays]

Monica says, THE DIY SAXOPHONE IS READY,
AND I'VE ADDED SOME EXTRA SPARKLES
FOR SOME INSTANT STAR QUALITY.
WHAT DO YOU GUYS SAY,
ARE YOU ALL SET?

Ashlee says, SURE AM.

Alison says, YEP.

Monica asks Ashlee, SO JUST HOW DOES A SAXOPHONIST
PLAY THE SAXOPHONE?

Ashlee, YOU PUT YOUR LEFT HAND
ON THE TOP HOLE,
AND THE RIGHT HAND
ON THE BOTTOM HOLES.

Monica says, GOT IT!

[Chuckle]

Monica says, LET'S JAM.
COUNT US IN, ALISON!

[Fingers snapping]

Alison snaps her fingers as she counts, ONE, TWO,
ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR â™Ş

Alison, Ashlee and Monica play their saxophones.

[Saxophone music plays]

They walk in a circle as they play, then stand in a line again.

[Saxophone music plays]

[Cheers]

[Slapping hands]

Alison, Monica and Ashlee high five.
