How I Use It
I plan to use this when I teach a physics lesson in 5th grade as a part of our STEM rotations. I will use this to teach vocabulary and also have them create a digital version of their roller coaster, problem-based learning unit, before they make their physical one.
I love this site! It really engages the kids on what all the vocabulary terms for physics mean in terms of roller coasters. I plan to use this for 5th graders so I don't know if the two characters at the beginning (not Bruno and Brunette) but the big guy and the tattooed girl are appropriate for the age group.
I love how easy it is for students to follow and I plan to use their google apps account to get them started.
