How I Use It
In my classroom we take a look at the Bill of Rights. The students are usually engaged as they like "bear arms" or learning what quartering troops means. However, I used this site for further application. Once learning about the amendments the students were able to play this fantastic game (by once again... iCivics) that engages them on whether they have the right or not. The game then will match the right to the correct amendment with explanation.
My Take
The is a great game that enhances the student's knowledge on the amendments. The game engages the students as they get to figure out whether they have the right to do things or not. I loved the fact that the game continually teaches. When you choose a right then you get to match the amendment. Furthermore, the game will explain the why the right and the amendment match. The students love playing this game. Once again, this should not be a main teaching tool but serves as a fun interactive way for the students to learn.
