Scoring & Annotations

There was a robot who was being created in a science lab. It was being created for helping get samples from volcanos.
When the scientists put the last part in the robot it was ready to work.
The robot was sent to Hawaii to get samples from an active Valcono. It had to climb up the tall valcano and into it to start collecting samples. It collected alot of information in it to give back to the scientists.

Now the robot is collecting information about the gases. It was sending the information back to the lab so it can be studied.
The robot was now back in the lab after searching the valcano. It was another work day for the robot after giving the information back. The robot now had been to volcanos all over the earth. It was being shipped all over the place.

It was now at the tallest valcano it had ever seen. It wasn’t sure how it was going to climb all the way up. It knew that it had to go into the volcano though so it started climbing. When it reached the top he started slowly going in to collect the samples.
The robot had been shipped back to the lab where he was created by a scientist and gave back the informaton that it had been sent out to collect.

While climbing the volcano he wondered why he had eight legs like a spider instead of two like a human. He guessed that it was just so he could climb better and faster to get the information.
He had seen other robots at the same lab and wondered why they looked different than him. He heard the scientist talk about how they all have different jobs that they do for the scientists. He still thought his job was the coolest.
