In this video, Michelle is focusing on the story telling technique and method that is also related to math in some kind of way. Storytelling is one thing that any person should learn to do in order to manage building a conversation or even going along with one.

Michelle then asked Aaron to tell a story using those three snakes but managed to arrange them in a specific order and give each one a number or dot.
