Presentation Transcript
Can You Save Fred(The Situation)
• Poor Fred! He was sailing along on a boat (the plastic cup) when a strong wind blew it upside down. Fred (the Gummi Worm) ended up on top of the upside down boat. Unfortunately for Fred, his life preserver (the Gummi Saver) is still trapped under the boat.
• Your job is to place the life preserver firmly around Fred’s body, but you must do this while obeying three rules.
Can You Save Fred?(The Rules)
• Fred may not fall into the “sea” (onto the desk) more than three times; if he does, Fred has “drowned.”
• You may not injure him in any way.
• You may only use the four paper clips to move Fred, the boat, and the life preserver - this means no touching!
