Yes lots of bowls and plates for parts. One team member can help hunt for really hard to find parts. As the missions get built and the volume of parts go down you can start to separate parts by color and style of part. Then the building velocity increases. 

Please check what the kids have built periodically against the PDFs. I'd mistakes are made early in the build process, it can take a while to correct the model. So check often.

First we took out all the pieces from the plastic bags and took disposible dinner plates and put all like pieces together on a plate.  Suggest you bring a number of PCs or laptops and display the instructions --it is very hard to make copies (too many pages and they need to be in color).  Then we broke up the team into sections with two kids building each of the field kit pieces.  Bonus, after the plates got cleared (i..e, the pieces were all used up) we had a pizza party afterwards using the plates.  should take a long day (4 hour session to complete)-- Monday (columbus day may be ideal)
