He'd smile at the students. "Welcome back fourth years. So according to my new curriculum we're supposed to be doing Gillyweed today...but I usually do it with my first years. I haven't taught here in a few years though so I'll ask...have you guys worked with Gillyweed before?"
He'd nod. "Very well. So let's get the obvious stuff out of the way quickly so we can move to the more fun practical demonstration." He'd smile. "Who knows what magical properties gillyweed has, what it's used for, or where it comes from?"
- "I live by one rule: I keep my head, heels, and standards high."

JJ hated Herbology. Getting her hands dirty? No, thanks. However, this particular topic, she knew about. "Ooh! I know this one!" She squealed excitedly. "It can allow you to grow gills so you can breathe underwater." JJ announced proudly. She'd studied up on it while learning more about Atlantis. She figured gillyweed could be used to find it - a method she's sure Cass has already thought of.
She hated Herbology. It was a very disgusting class. But it was very useful, especially when it came to potions, so she was ready to pay attention. "It resembles rat tails. It helps us grow gills and webbing to breathe under water."
He'd smile at the first years as they gathered around on the beach near the lake. "So...most people think of herbology as a boring class and not very useful in the real world. Today I'm going to demonstrate just how useful magical plants can be." He'd indicate a bucket fully of some sort of seaweed. "This is called gillyweed. It's a bit slimy but can be very useful when you need it. Eating some will give you gills and fins and enable you to breath underwater. So...I've marked off a section of the lake for swimming...feel free to get some and have a good time. After all summer is barely over and everyone loves to swim. Please don't leave the marked off section...there's nets going to the bottom so it should be easy to stay inside. I'll be here on the shore if you need anything."
OOC:Feel free to RP swimming and playing in the lake below.
