I want you to practice what you learned from Stevie by recognizing that you are frustrated, dealing with your frustration, and being persistent to accomplish your goal.
In the last activity, you had to figure out what pieces of the Marble Run were put together incorrectly keeping the marble from rolling from the top and out the bottom.
