INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE : Boulder Roll 

Running Time: Self-paced* 

Learners stand atop a snowy peak on the VictoryXR Mountain as ogres charge up toward them.  By rolling boulders down the hill, the ogres are vanquished, allowing students to earn more time to make it to the finish. Rolling boulders is easy, but getting enough of them to conquer the ogres, students must correctly respond to rapid fire questions based on this unit.
