- Super Challenge: Can you create a ballad for a bug or critter you find in the fields or forest? Write just a few catchy lines that share the secrets of what they are up to – day or night! (poem p. 24)
- Super-Duper Challenge: Oh What Will We Find on the Forest Floor? Look for a spot in the forest where mushrooms grow. Revisit the same spot, especially after damp days and watch for things to magically change overnight. What changes do you see? (poem p. 22)
- Super Spectacular Challenge: Did you solve who is the Dark Emperor? Have you seen one? or heard WHO-O-O it is?!?
