A Leti and DMK Collaborative Production
You are a computer skills teacher at the local middle school. In a lesson last week you taught the class how to use PhotoShop. The class really loved one of the photos you designed for them. This is the photo:
Two of the students, 13 year old seventh graders, Murray House and Yogi Bates, intently studied the picture. Yogi even asked for a copy to take home. Murray and Yogi are best friends. Murray and Yogi are excellent students and have the highest averages in the seventh grade. They are also prone to mischief. Both Murray and Yogi have been paddled twice this school year for their antics.
Today a select group of seventh graders will be taking a field trip to a local wildlife park. Murray and Yogi are going on the field trip and the principal has asked yo to go along as one of the faculty chaperones. The field trip is a reward for academic performance and the students have known about it since the end of the last grading period three weeks ago and they are all very excited about it.
Upon arrival at the park, Murray and Yogi are assigned to the group of students you will be supervising. About thirty minutes in to the tour, Murray and Yogi claim to need to go to the restroom and so you tell them to go and catch up to the group. An unusual amount of time has passed and Murray and Yogi have not joined back with your group. You and your group backtrack to the restroom area but there is no sign of the boys. You look about the immediate area and there is no Murray or Yogi.
You use your phone and contact the other chaperones. No one has seen your missing students. You go to the park office to request assistance in locating Murray and Yogi. As you arrive at the office a park security guard is bringing the missing boys into the office. He found them at a maintenance shed at the back of the park in an area that is off limits to guests. The boys had removed some cans of old paint and some brushes. The picture of the painted giraffe was found in Yogi's pocket and Murray had a map of the park that he had printed from the internet. The maintenance shed and the giraffe enclosure were circled in red on Murray's map.
The boys said they were just gathering 'props' and they would have put the paint and supplies back. Their plan was to take pictures of a giraffe, of each other and of the paint and supplies and then to create a Photo Shop picture of their own where they are the ones painting a giraffe. Yogi did have his digital camera with him. The boys said they had been planning their picture for a week.
How do you deal with Murray and Yogi?
As a bonus: You are Murray and/or Yogi's parent. How do you deal with your son once he gets home.
