In the model, near of each object you will find an orange circle. When you click on a circle, a window will open that Displays the letter it is associated with. Write down the letter in the box beneath the picture of the object on the solution sheet. Don't forget to write the solution in the boxes at the bottom of the sheet once you have found all of the letters!
