This episode is all about actions and consequences. By singing "I did that," or "you did that," we learn that by doing certain things, we can cause things to happen or make people feel a certain way. For example, Tickety makes Pail mad when she knocks over his block tower and we find a way to help her out. We also visit Blue's school, where we explore sharing and taking turns.
