Can you imagine being stuck in the dark for such a long time? How do all of the numbers play out?
In this activity, students get a chance to talk about the experience of this ordeal while calculating usual rates and comparing those rates to the speed of the rescuers' and the boys' journeys. A little geography of Thailand and its place in the World is part of the whole picture.
