Preparation & Set-Up
This is a print, photocopy and go activity. The video hook is to be viewed before starting the paper part of this task to set the stage to engage. The math component of this activity is on paper, with each chapter presenting a part of the story and a math task/challenge or puzzle to 'progress' through the story. At the end, students are given choices, which leads to one of four alternative endings to the story.
