Bob's Big Challenge

MOVING HOUSE When Mayor Madison wants to save an old historic house that is dangerously close to a crumbling cliff, Bob and the team lift it onto Two-Tonne's flatbed to take it to a new site. Mr. Bentley accompanies the convoy and, being a keen bird watcher, he spots a nest of very rare eggs by the side of the road. To avoid disturbing it, Two-Tonne decides to take a different route through the city, but he misjudges the height of the bridge and the house gets stuck. Luckily Bob has a solution! He lets the air out of Two Tonne's tires so the vehicle becomes low enough to squeeze under the bridge and move to the new site. LEARNING GOALS: --To understand the value of teamwork. --To learn to ask for help. --To explore height. --To recognize the importance protecting animals and their nests. --To understand that tires are filled with air. CRANE PAIN The team is at the stadium construction site installing sections of concrete onto the steelwork. Lofty is excited to be working with Tiny and wants to impress him. Lofty doesn't admit to finding the concrete difficult to lift and he drops a section in front of the access way, trapping everybody inside the stadium. With some creative problem solving and collaboration, the team completes the job in time! LEARNING GOALS: --To learn to accept help. --To understand problem solving. --To understand that machines can lift heavy objects.

Trouble at Christmas

MUCK THE ELF While erecting a Gingerbread House display at the plaza, Muck obsessively takes on the role of a Christmas elf - zipping around helping make the season special. He tries building a toy go-kart, decorating a Christmas tree, and even delivering presents. Unfortunately, his efforts don't seem to be as helpful as he intended. Muck realizes that he is most useful when he helps with things that he is good at doing and assists Bob by collecting supplies for the display. Meanwhile, Wendy and Bob exchange hand-made Christmas cards. LEARNING GOALS: To recognize one's talents. To appreciate the value of persistence. To understand responsibility. To learn about making meaningful contributions. A CHRISTMAS FIX A very excited Mr. Bentley gets Bob and the team to set up Fixham's big Christmas party, but he insists on hanging so many lights that they cause a power failure! Unable to use the square, Bob offers to relocate the event to his yard for a smaller, but just as enjoyable, party. LEARNING GOALS: To recognize one's limitations. To learn the value of flexible thinking. To learn about being resourceful. To observe properties of electrical circuitry.
