Scoop Cries Wolf: Bob is building an ice cream kiosk at the beach. When a tired Scoop stays behind, he finds spurious reasons to radio Bob, urging him to return to the yard. A real crisis occurs, however, and Bob doesn't believe it's anything serious until Scoop brings a burning bin to the beach. It falls onto the kiosk roof but Scoop swiftly extinguishes the fire by pouring sand onto it. Learning Goals: To experience why exaggeration can cause problems. To learn about fire safety. To observe how proper sleep is important to good decision making. The Big Bang: In order to make room for the new skyscraper, Bob and the team are demolishing an old factory. Lofty is fearful when they plan to use explosives to bring down the chimney. Scoop taunts him around the site, causing loud noises to scare him. With Scoop's loud 'KA-BOOM' shout, Lofty reacts by accidently smashing the girder into the chimney, causing a hole. This hole could cause the chimney to fall onto the street. The team patches the hole and Lofty prepares for the explosion. Afterward, he realizes that there was nothing to be afraid of after all, while Scoop cowers in fear. Learning Goals: To show safely demolishing a building takes skill and practice. To explore scaring and teasing and the effects it has on others. To learn to apologize. To overcome fears.
