Computational Thinking Activity: Choose Your Own Adventure Stories With Google Forms

This year, we tasked our Grade 8 students with creating their own ‘choose your own adventure stories’ using Google Forms. They had a few set guidelines, such as the minimum number of choices, the inclusion of pictures, formatting, and so on. And they had three hours to complete this activity.

What I particularly liked is how they had to think consequentially – anticipating ahead of time where their choices would lead – it’s the same reason we learn to play chess in CT.

Here are some of the results.
