An interactive activity that allows students to experience the events of Jon Krakauer's "Into Thin Air" from the comfort of their desks. What does the Hillary Step really look like? What was Rob Hall thinking when he was standing there, waiting for Doug Hansen? Creative writing prompts and analysis questions are paired with quotes from the novel to give students a 'tour' of "Into Thin Air" and challenge them to think critically. This writing activity is designed to be used with an interactive tour of Mt. Everest in 360 HD; link is included in the activity.
