Final instructions

The whole file is too big to upload. Here's the first 4 pages. Here's page 5. Here's page 6. Here's page 7. Just print them out separately and put them together. If the user testing gets posted, print that out and just attach it to the back. Sorry I can't make it tonight.

The user needs to follow directions and steps in order, also consults with the provided figures. The only required preparatory step is to read and understand the instruction before working on the project. .

3.What steps and substeps are needed to accomplish the activity?
