  • 2. What we did• Every Ninja got an atlas (same publication)• There were small strips of paper, folded and placed in a small bowl. Each had: – Place(s) to find and – Question(s) to answer• Each person had to pick a strip and find the place(s) listed and answer the question(s) on it
  • 3. What we did• I suggested merely playing, but they wanted to form teams and compete. I acquiesced. – Boys’ team and girls’ team• Little Sameera started out doling out the strips but decided this wasn’t Action enough for him. So, he started pretend-playing … on his own. – This pleased him no end!
