3. Can he afford a new motorcar?
4. What makes the motorcar special?
5. What kinds of safety features does a car need?
Second, have look at the websites, and design a new car for Toad. You can
print a picture to color off of the website, or create your own. Make sure
you think about what types of things Toad might need in his car. Write and
draw a diagram to illustrate the features of the car.
Third, write an advertisement or design a commericial to make other people
