  • Melvin may be smart, but he’s also a klutz—all of his potion bottles are mixed up, and he needs your help to put them back in their places. To do this you must pay close attention to the labels. Each bottle has a label with a fraction on it. Sometimes the fractions are numbers and sometimes the fractions are pictures. To get the potions organized correctly, all of the bottles with labels that are equivalent fractions need to be matched up.
