Oh, hi there. Have you seen my robot friend, Melody? I can’t find her anywhere. “Hi, Robot!” “Melody, where are you?” “I flew to space, but then my rocket broke. I can’t get home! Can you come help me get back to Earth?” We have to go help Melody fix her rocket! Should we take a rocket, a spaceship, or my jet boots?

Here we are in space! This is the moon. Is Melody stuck here? I don’t see her. I wonder if anyone here has seen her. Who should we ask? Should we ask the Astronaut in space, the Astronaut on the moon, or the alien in the crater?

Let’s see if Melody is on Venus. “Melody? Melody?” I don’t think Melody is stuck here. It’s too hot! Wow, I’m going to need to cool off before we look for Melody somewhere else. Should I use a glass of lemonade, a fan, or a sprinkler?

Let’s see if we can find Melody on Mars. “Melody!” “Melody!” “Melody!” “Melody!” “Robot! You’re here! You came to help me fix my rocket!” “I did! But what are you doing here?” “I came to find out all I can about Mars. Do you want to see what I found?” Melody found so many things! What should we take a closer look at? The rocks, the plant, or the rover?

“I need to get back to Earth so I can tell everyone about Mars! Will you help me fix my rocket? It broke into pieces when I landed here.” We need to help Melody put her rocket back together. Should we use space glue, super tape, or star gum?
