1
Choose one wooden block
2
Sand the front & ends of the wooden block to create smooth surfaces. Round sharp edges & corners.

Pick four wheels & one type of fastener. Nails are quicker, screws are more accurate and stronger.

Align all four wheels onto wooden block and visualize where your fasteners go! Keep wheels aligned!
5
Pick a tool. Screwdrivers are only for strong connections with screws. Push and twist to the right!
6
Pick a tool. Hold hammer at bottom of handle! Students are welcome to work on the floor

Test your vehicle. Do all four wheels spin? Are they even? Make adjustments as needed!
