How I Use It
I used this for part of a town planning unit, but it could easily be used for a science or geography unit, about pollution or population. I used this for my Grade 7 students, and they worked through the challenges in twos. I don't usually use the teaching resources companies provide, but they were fantastic, so I used all of these, and supported it with my own information.
My Take
Before you set this for students, have a go yourself! It's a fun and challenging game and will make students think differently about their surroundings.
