The most advanced of the three Pre-Voc sets
Ten sophisticated work tasks use recognizable materials to teach multi-step activities. Specific skills are practiced and important work skills and habits are developed and reinforced. Many tasks require the use of multiple parts over extended work periods.
Even though complete tasks are complex, each is broken down into small steps to accommodate users with various abilities.
Introduces use of industrial equipment—a heatsealer. A safety feature on the heatsealer allows heating and sealing of plastic bags, but prevents burning of fingers! Procedure involves counting, bagging, sealing and packing.

Package office supplies in divider boxes following directions (words or symbols) on order cards. A complex packaging task involving multiple parts and patterns over an extended work period.
Remove 5 pieces from a divider box and assemble into a PVC Connector. Disassemble the PVC Connector into five pieces and packaging in 5-compartment divider boxes.
Practice a 5-part assembly involving turning and inserting stills using the correct sequence and placement. Or disassemble the five parts and package with each part going into its own compartment in a 5-compartment divider box. The Connectors are made of heavy-duty PVC, metal and plastic pieces.
A complex task requiring sophisticated turning and sequencing manipulations to assemble this durable seven piece item.
A two- to 24-item sort of anodized aluminum pieces. A difficult task requiring attention to three relevant dimensions: color (silver and gold), shape (circle, square, rectangle and hexagon) and thickness (thin, medium and thick). Many variations are possible: sort by shape only, shape and color, color only, color and thickness and many more.
A weighing task using a dial-face scale and involves bagging and zipping. User weighs plates to within the required 3-5 oz., then bags, zips and stores the bagged plates.
