The task Eric The Sheep asks only one question.
What happens if there are 50 sheep in front of Eric?
The question is most often answered with the concrete materials provided. That may be all there is on the card, but this class poster shows there is a lot more to discover. The card is the tip of the iceberg. Read more of Eric's iceberg below in its Task Cameo.
