The Man with No Face PowerPoint
During this review lesson, students will either uncover a mystery or decide to defeat the man with no face. The man with no face has decided to take something from the class. They can find out what he took, or they can simply defeat him and ask questions later! It is up to you to decide the rewards (if any) for defeat or uncovering the mystery. This can be bonus points, a small treat, etc.
