What A Team!

Kitchen Whiz: Bob is in the kitchen preparing lunch for the team when a hungry Pilchard sneaks into his bag and hitches a ride to work. At the base of Chef Tattie's UFO-themed revolving restaurant, Bob is building the kitchen, Wendy is wiring the revolving floor, and Leo and the machines are decorating the entrance. Pilchard climbs out of Bob's bag and causes strange things to happen on the site, prompting the Machines to think it was an alien. When the restaurant starts revolving at high speed, Bob saves the day by luring Pilchard off the remote control with a sandwich. Together, the team finishes the restaurant in time and the Machines discover that the 'alien' was actually Pilchard. Learning Goals: To explore motion including up and down, circular, reverse, and forward. To understand everyone can try new things. Lofty Lets Loose: The zoo is getting a new giraffe-Lofty's favorite animal! Bob and the team are building its enclosure and viewing platform. Unfortunately, Lofty won't be able to see the giraffe--his job is to lift supplies over the fence. The work is nearly complete when the giraffe arrives. Amid the excitement, Lofty becomes so anxious that, trying to peer through the small spaces in the fence, he crashes through it! The giraffe flees, but Lofty uses his knowledge of giraffes to lure the animal back with food. The team finally finishes the enclosure just in time and Jenny names the giraffe after its biggest fan Lofty!
