                           Artemis Fowl Problem Solving Strategy

     An evil wizard is threatening to destroy the world. Your team has been chosen to stop the
wizard before he can carry out his plans. This is a powerful and cunning wizard, but can be
defeated. You must rate the listed items to determine their importance in your quest.

     On your own, decide which items are most important to you. Rate them from 1 to 18 (1
being the most important and 18 being the least important).

_____ Invisibility Cloak                        _____ Courage

_____ Knowledge of the Wizard‟s Powers          _____ Map of Wizard‟s Castle

_____ Strength                                  _____ Good Luck Talisman

_____ Sword                                     _____ Good Looks

_____ Intelligence                              _____ Skeleton Key

     Then, as a team, come to an agreement on what 7 items your band of adventurers will bring.

      Your group should attempt to reach a reasonable consensus by talking about possible
alternatives. If two or more group members disagree, search for a compromise that can be
accepted by all parties. Avoid arguing your own points, but present your opinions logically and
honestly. Consider the opinions of others carefully and respectfully. Working through differences
of opinion will help you consider the possible consequences of your decisions.

     Choose wisely. The fate of the world rests in your hands!

                                  ________________________

      On your own, write at least one 5-7 sentence paragraph about how your group worked
together. Explain how you arrived at your decision about the seven items you are bringing on
your journey.
