Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs

Students read The Seven Wonders of Sassafras Springs by Betty G. Birney. Afterwards, they went around the school and searched for their wonders, took photos and made a video of it.

Video Game Design on Sploder

The students designed their own video game on Sploder. They created a game with at least three levels, then they went on Schoology and summarized their game and listed all their problem solving strategies. They also had to say what was the best things about their game and what they would do differently next time. Next, the students played another student's game. They had to rate the game 1-5 and cite evidence (at least three examples) of why they rated it the way they did and whether they would purchase it in the store. They also had to list one positive thing about the game and one suggestion.
