Create a “Choose Your Own Adventure” Story with Google Forms
Does anyone remember the old chapter books in the Choose Your Own Adventure series? Readers would get to a certain point in the story and then have to choose the ending they preferred (Does the princess marry the prince?Does the hero find the treasure?).
Students will have lots of fun navigating through the adventure and choosing their own ending. Teachers can also use it for other free choice assignments. For example, students studying colonial America can choose the path of a settler, Native American, servant, explorer, etc. Another theme could be discussing consequences for various behavioral choices. I have provided a sample discussing “What would you do if the substitute teacher got locked out of the room?” For younger students, you can create “Yes” and “No” questions with pictures. I have another sample for the little ones, giving pictures of what plants need.
Get Google Forms
Create a new blank form. Each Google Form question has the option of the answer being multiple choice (one answer), checkboxes (such as choose all that apply), text (writing in an answer), choose from a drop-down list, etc. For Choose Your Own Adventure, you only need Multiple Choice. In the first question field, write a brief scenario: “You have a substitute teacher. She mentions that she has the classroom door propped open because she doesn’t have the key. She goes out in the hallway, and the door slams behind her. What do you do?”
Click on the three dots (signifying More) and select: Go to section based on answer. Pull down to the desired section.
