Ms. Sanders' students have spent a few weeks studying evolution. After the students have gained a comfortable understanding, they have an oppurtunity to apply their knowledge by creating a game. Master game maker, Mark Gerl, is collaborating and supporting Ms. Sanders and her students. The students are provided many possible options: digital game, card games, board and simulation games.
I was so impressed with this project because the examples I saw demonstrated an understanding of a complicated topic. The students incorportated their multi-level understanding into game rules and game complexity. Ms. Sanders did a great job providing the students with clear instructions and expectations, while allowing students plenty of flexibility to be creative.
