This Magic Square appeared in the famous painting Melancholia by Albrecht Durer.

Everybody is Number One
The fun has just begun as Shemar picks up where Lamar left off, teaching us to be Number One and shine in the second half of the opening routine from the music video. He makes us all want to stand up and raise our hands up, and helps us pretend to go through a tunnel, and serve candy and chicken.

Adventure Camp: Ziplining / Adventure Camp: Canyon Hiking
The Nature Trackers Adventure Campers are back for another adventure and this time they'll be travelling to a rainforest! Once they arrive in the dense, overgrown rainforest, the campers explore different levels of the ecosystem, including the forest floor and the canopy of leaves at the top of the forest. After a hike through the rainforest, the campers' fun adventure culminates as each kid takes a ride on a zip line, where they all get a bird's eye view of the entire rainforest! --- The Nature Trackers Adventure Campers are led by Mr. Conductor and Gilbert on a hike down a canyon, where they can see the different layers of the Mesozoic Era! At first Lily Lambeosaurus is reluctant to go, thinking that a new adventure sounds hard, but Don convinces her that a new adventure can be worth the effort. At the bottom of the canyon, the kids play Dinoball and then dig for fossils. Each Nature Tracker goes home with a ,new, Ammonite fossil, and Lily is so glad she tried something new!
