25. Work out these puzzles using the Open Roads

Hi ya, hi ya. Sam here again. Last month I shared a guessing game with you. This month I am going to give you some funny situations that you can share with your family or friends and decide how to help the characters negotiate their decision so everyone is happy. This is a real challenge that I hope you are up for. Are you ready?

Situation #1 Daisy and Doug both wanted to lead the gang in the holiday parade. They each decorated their cars and volunteered with Larry Limo to be the leader. They all knew that in this parade, cars would be in single file because they needed to leave most of the road clear for other traffic. Help them negotiate who and how the leader will be.

Situation #2 Sam and the Double Devil Dragsters were headed for the Drag Track. They had their loud exhaust tail pipes all revved up and were making a terrible racket. Constable Oldsmobile was called to look into this noise. The cars that lived on the road and near the drag strip were bothered by all the loud rumbling. Help Constable Oldsmobile and the DDDragsters all respect each other and have a good time at the Drag Track. How can they negotiate so that the situation is good for everyone?

Situation #3 Mini and Daisy wanted the Dragsters to always think about safety. Doug and Sid were all about speed and risky, dare-devil stunts. Today they wanted to try driving up a ramp and jumping their cars over other cars under the ramp. Mini said it was too dangerous for Doug and Daisy, they thought it was too dangerous for the cars that parked under the ramp. Think about this stunt. Have you ever seen cars do this? Help the dragsters negotiate a safe way to challenge their driving skills and still have fun.

There you go. Let me know how the challenge worked out. Did you have fun and explore ways to negotiate?
