Chapter 1 <ul><li>Once upon a time there were four kids named Jay, Jillian, Jessie, and Jake. They were at Jay’s house one hot summer afternoon, when Jay’s mom came out of the house and asked if they wanted something to do. They said “yes.” So Jay’s mom gave them a list of things to find on a scavenger hunt. </li></ul>
Chapter 2 <ul><li>She told them the rules to follow on a scavenger hunt, and gave them a list. The list said find 4 platypuses, and 6 goats. They were allowed to travel using a magic carpet but they had to take a picture of each animal as they found it. </li></ul>
Chapter 3 <ul><li>First they went to the store to find a magic flying carpe. They couldn’t all agree on a color so they chose a rainbow carpet. Then they set off on an expedition. </li></ul>
Chapter 4 <ul><li>“ Where is our first stop, Jake?” said Jessie. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Our first stop is Australia to find 4 platypuses.” said Jake. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Off we go!” said Jillian. (10 minutes later) </li></ul><ul><li>“ Ok everybody hang on where coming in for a landing.” said Jay. Ahhhhhhhh! Boom! </li></ul><ul><li>“ Let’s go find those platypuses!” said Jake. “Let’s split up!” said Jay </li></ul><ul><li>So they all split up on there quest to find the 4 platypuses. </li></ul>
Chapter 5 <ul><li>Finally 1 hour later they found the Desert they were looking for. Only a couple minutes after they entered, they found the platypuses, but it was a big group of them. So we counted them and we found out that there were 16 platypuses in the group. They subtracted 16-4=12. So they figured out that there were 12 extra platypuses. So they took a picture of 4 platypuses, and they left the Desert. </li></ul>
Chapter 6 <ul><li>They found their way back to the magic flying carpet and they all hoped in. “Off we go!” said Jessie. ZOOM! They were off. “Where’s our next stop Jay?” asked Jillian. “Umm… next we are going to Old McDonalds Farm.” said Jake (5 minutes later) Coming in for another landing! Ahhhhhhhhhh! CRASH! We landed on Old McDonalds farm. </li></ul>
Chapter 7 <ul><li>They were walking around the farm for a couple of minutes, and they finally found Old McDonald. They asked him “Can you please tell us where the goats are?” asked Jessie. “He said they are in the barn over there to your right.” said Old McDonalds So we all walked over to the barn. There were 7 goats in that barn, and we only needed 6. So we subtracted 7-6=1, so we figured out that there was one extra goat in the barn then we needed. So we took a picture of 6 goats and we left Old McDonalds farm. </li></ul>
Chapter 8 <ul><li>We got back onto the flying carpet and set off for home. (2 minutes later) “Mom, where home with the pictures of the goats and the platypuses.” Let me take a look to see if they are all there.” (5 seconds later) yup they are all there. Now for your special surprise! </li></ul>
Chapter 9 <ul><li>Jay’s mom went into the kitchen and got 4 popsicles. She gave them to us and we were all very happy. Then they all lived happily ever after. The end. </li></ul>
