Main Lesson Materials & Study Steps
Freddie, Lisa and their parents have arrived at the airport to catch a flight to New Zealand. They are going through security checks. Freddie is alarmed by the metal detector’s beeping when he attempts to go through. The security officer does a pat down just to make sure he is not carrying anything dangerous. It turns out it was the metal on Freddie’s belt that caused the alarm to go off.
