Poor, poor Fred. He was having a wonderful day sailing his beautiful boat when suddenly his boat capsized! The boat turned upside down with his life preserver underneath and Fred was hanging on for his life. The students had to rescue Fred and help him into his preserver using only 4 paperclips. They were not allowed to touch Fred, the boat or the life preserver with their hands. Much discussion, strategies, failed attempts and tons of laughter helped rescue Fred.
