Amy Brown's 7th grade students have been working on a creative project in Language Arts class. The students started by watching both Caine's Arcade videos, the original one and the one that presented the Global Cardboard Challenge. The students then completed a digital discussion in which they reflected on and responded to the videos.
The students had a class period scheduled with their 2nd grade buddies, so that the younger students could play the games. Amy Brown said, "Now that it is over, I will have them write a final reflection on the project and the day of play, including anything they would do differently if they were to start the project over again."This project incorporated elements of creative and critical thinking, reflection, and collaboration. There were many lessons learned and skills developed, however, the look of delight on all the students' faces was truly priceless.
