      6. “I’m going to pass out a bucket to each group. The buckets have different ways of transportation and many different colors. I am also going to pass out a worksheet and you are going to use the worksheet to sort out the objects. The worksheet tells you which way you need to sort the objects and then you must write down your observations in the space provided.”
