Description of Activities and Setting

“It seems that everyone in our
class is related through great
uncle Machu. Uncle Machu
traveled throughout Peru and
has left each of you a treasure
from one of his adventures. Here
is a video he left for you to see
before you start your adventure.”

Treasure Map with the clues
found on your Treasure Card.”

notes on the back of their
Treasure Map.
