School Bus Stop
by Shelly Hazard

Sally and the other four kids on Forest Street all ride the same bus to school. When the bus picks them up, it picks up the kids on the right side of the street, turns around at the end, and then picks up all the kids on the left side of the street. On Monday, each of the kids got on the bus with an extra item besides their bag of schoolbooks. Determine the full name of each kid, the order in which they were picked up, the house number where each kid lived, and the extra item each carried that day.
