Project Idea for Students
Can't say I know the age limit of such an idea, but here's a little student project that gives a little game to your classroom.
In my physical chemistry class, the students will be broken into four 4-person teams about half way through the semester. At that time, their assignment will be to design a game (video or other) that would need to include the material from class. Each team will have a schedule to keep and forms to force them to keep track of who is doing what. In the end, the teams will present their idea and a vote from the class will choose the best idea (no, they cannot vote for their own idea). I think some of the students will really get into it and come with story boards, plots, twists, examples. Should be a great way to make them make connections.
Have you tried anything like this?
