  • Curtis' Big Day 8:30 AM - Idaho (1)

    Car Wash Bob and the team are building an automatic car wash for Curtis's garage. In effort to ensure that the tarmac is completely flat, Roley keeps checking and re-checking, so much to a fault! During the second test run, Roley thinks he sees unflattened tarmac and rushes to fix it. Car wash chaos ensues and Bob and the team enact a quick repair. The car wash is finished just as Mayor Madison and Mr. Bentley arrive to use the new system. Windows open, Phillip hurries through, washing not only the outside of the car, but Mayor Madison and Mr. Bentley, too. Learning Goals: To recognize that systems have an order for operation. To recognize shapes and colors. To understand the importance of applying one's best efforts. Check Up Day: It's time for the Machines' Check Up Day! After a wash, the Machines are ready for Curtis the mechanic to examine them to ensure that they're working properly. However, Scoop notices that his orange emergency light is broken and worries about his inspection. He tries to hide but only becomes more disheveled. Bob finds Scoop and, with Wendy's help, they prepare him for his examination. Scoop and Lofty support each other through their check-ups and yield positive results. Learning Goals: To understand that systems have components or parts that work together to accomplish a goal. To understand the need to maintain systems. To recognize value of expressing fears, concerns and problems.
