Robot Build Excerpt:

Emily sighed. She knew her big brother had already read the manual twice. Emily also knew the look on Billy’s face. He needed to read it one more time. So even though Emily was eager to get started, she decided she would let her brother finish reading the instructions before suggesting that they begin the build. Instead she decided to try something else. “While you’re reading, I’ll organize the parts.” Emily suggested.

“Good idea!” Billy said as he turned to the last page of instructions.

Emily set a mat on the table and gently tipped the box to slide everything out on the table. Once she could see everything in the kit, she began to group the parts. On the mat Emily played a matching game with all the little pieces. Screws in one pile, tubes for the frame in another all sorted by size. She placed the larger parts for the robot’s body in the center of the mat.

Billy smiled and set the instruction booklet on the table. “Ok! Are you ready?” he asked his sister.
