|Taking The Plunge
Timothy finds it odd that Claude continues to make excuses for not taking the plunge during Swim Day at Hilltop School. However, it all becomes clear when Claude admits to Timothy that he is not very good at the sport, so Timothy takes it upon himself to teach Claude how to swim.
Timothy becomes anxious when he can’t come up with a subject to teach everyone for a class exercise. The pressure mounts when all the other kids seem to be able to choose something with ease. Fortunately, while playing marbles with the other kids at recess, Timothy realizes that this is the very thing he can teach to the others.
