How I Use It
I made a worksheet to explain how to set up an account for my students and this was helpful. Students log in and play the game. Easy!
My Take
I did this with my 5th graders to study colonial U.S. history and they loved it. It was a little frustrating at first as students figured out how to navigate but it was good critical thinking exercise. The vocabulary is a little difficult for my Ell's but the visuals and the game aspect make up for it.
