How I Use It
A featured theme was introduced to the class using a projector. Videos and games were chosen to enhance the specific topic. Students found the games to be fun and challenging. However, the Quests were the favorite among most students. They required more thinking and problem-solving skills with consistent entertainment. It was an adventure!
My Take
Students enjoyed a variety of videos and games related to math, science and problem-solving. Many math topics were explained with videos. Interactive games included skills with fractions, geometry, measurement, money, problem-solving, and using data. PBS Teachers site: http://www.pbs.org/teachers/cyberchase/ was extremely helpful in organization and implementation of lessons and themes in Cyberchase.
