How I Use It
I used this product with my G/T fifth grade students. In my opinion it would be a better option for much older students (G/T middle and high school aged). We completed the Hunger Games challenge. For my students this just wasn't as engaging as I thought it would be and it wasn't as well received. I think part of the problem with the lesson wasn't that the lesson itself was poor but that my students lack the analytical skills in order to be successful.
My Take
I like the concept but I think that it is a bit too high level for my student population. I think it could work VERY well for middle or high school aged students.
