  13. 13. Imaginative Work 1. Mrs. Poai's first grade is the best class in the whole wide world. 2. The first grade has scary and fun adventures to learn a lot. 3. Today the class will go exploring in an Hawaiian jungle. 4. The students need to get smaller to explore, so they use a magic machine. 5.Once they become small, they ride on a caterpillar that turned into a butterfly because it takes so long to get to Hawaii. 6 .Now they are in the jungle to learn more about plants. 7.They find a kooloaula plant, and notice that it is dying. They don't know what to do for the plant. 8. They look up and see huge trees covering the plant, so it doesn't have water or sunlight. They figured out what the plant needs! 9.They take care of it by watering it. Then they climb to the top of the trees and push the leaves away to help the plant. 10.Now the class must go home.  The class will ride in our car-boat.  11. They learned about taking care of plants. Taking care of the plant, riding on the caterpillar, and going on our car-boat is cool!
