My students need activities that engage their mind through play. These 6th graders need the 5 games to help promote their thinking about the environment in a fun way.
Video Games, Video Games, students love video games. If only they loved learning as much as they do sitting in front of the TV. Well I think I have found something that will work in school. By using games to help students learn about science concepts, students will participate and be excited.
My school is considered a high poverty school that has over half of the students working below grade level.
My students are between 11 and 12 years old, but act like teenagers. They are usually responsible for taking care of their siblings as soon as they get home. They cook dinner, help with homework and even put their bothers or sisters to bed. This leaves little time for play. These students need the chance to be children and that is were you and I come in.
My students need some games that help teach the science concepts while letting them be kids. They can have a lot of fun and learn at the same time. The games in this project will actually help the students throughout the year. They are engaging games that are easy to play and can be done in pairs or small groups. They can make mistakes in a safe learning environment with no fear of looking "stupid." I teach 4 different groups of students every day and see how serious they are when they walk in the door. Learning should be fun and being in school shouldn't be that stressful. These games will allow my students to be students. They will engage in a learning environment that promotes collaboration and having a good time with learning.
What could be better than learning while playing?
NOTHING, that is why I need your help. You can give my students their childhood through a positively fun learning environment. The few games you purchase will impact over 100 students for the rest of their lives. Please consider donating to this project and help me make the difference of a lifetime.
