Antarctic Adventures

Remember the Pick A Path and Choose Your Own Adventure books? I made a PowerPoint template to recreate the story feature. Students will write a guided adventure story that is already hyper-linked.I even gave them a flowchart to help organize their plot.
The topic we're covering is Antarctica in Geography class and so that explains the penguins on the background. You can download a copy from Google Docs and modify according to what ever topic you're covering. It wouldn't be too difficult to expand the plot lines, but I'm only spending 45 minutes on this one so I opted to keep it simple. If they finish early, I plan to have students read the other stories.
