Nice start.

I think a first step would be to solicit some feedback from the
pedagogy team. There are regular weekly meetings... perhaps we can
schedule you in for a discussion?

>From an activity-developer point of view, I am a bit confused by how I
interact with Glycerin. Do I need to define a close-ended task within
my activity? Maybe you could take a peek at, for example,
TurtleConfusion [1], a series of challenges for Turtle Art. Should be
relatively straight-forward to migrate to your system?
