They once again went walking down the path. A few moments later a raccoon walk out from behind a bush and stoped right infront of them. As they drew closer to the raccoon it looked as if the raccoon was smiling at them. The raccoon said aloud and clear "Hi there, this is your second question", and looked at Austin. (-5)+(+7) said the raccoon. Austin looked down at the ground and saw 5 small rocks that would represent the negatives and 7 large rocks that would represent the positives, he thought of the rocks as "Chips". Austin shouted the answer is "+2"! The raccoon said excitedly "Terrific, that's correct, you may now follow through".
They were so excited they almost begun running down the path. Tasha yelled "look, its the next animal with our next question", and they rushed down the path. When they got near to the animal they could all see it was a fox. The fox said "Nice to see you, here is your third question", and the fox glanced at Tasha. (-15)+(+10) the fox said. Tasha invisioned a numberline in her head with the (-) negatives on the left, and the (+) positives on the right. She said in a questioning voice "-5". The fox immediately said "Yay! Good for you, now you may reach your fourth question."
They all started running at full speed down the path to know what the next question was going to be, and to see the next animal. They finally reached the animal and which the animal was a friendly bear. The bear said "Hello, I'm pleased to see you this far, here is your fourth question...hm..." The bear look at all of the backyardigans, and then pointed at Tyrone. (+6)+(-6) "here you go" said the bear. Tyrone mumbled "its a zero pair, so its "0"! he yelled! "Good job, now you better hurry along to see your next question" said the bear.
Will the backyardigans get to the magical castle and complete the task ?
