Reading this article was extremely educational for me. Learning about new standards of teaching and how we can effectively teach them is incredible. I agree that this can be a tough concept to understand at a young age, and that using story-like games is an effective way to learn. Using games or interactive options in teaching more complex topics can increase the chance of understandment. Allow for more in-depth understanding in the future.

My favorite form of taking a test in elementary was kahoot! I think we can all agree that students learn the best when they are fully engaged in the activity and a game is a great example.

I am always open to using interactive games in a science classroom! Reflecting on how I remember being taught science, students need to be engaged in their learning. I think science is a subject where students can easily be lost in their learning through constant lectures. I loved taking a look at the article because the game made learning science so immersive! I think immersive learning experiences for students is a phenomenal approach for students to meaningfully learn science, which gives them a better chance at applying and extending their knowledge outside the classroom. I am definitely making a note about this article for future science lessons!

This sounds like such a fun and engaging activity! I love how students are able to explore these concepts while also engaging with one another. I really want to provide my own students with rich learning experiences like this!

I really enjoyed reading this article and other suggestions in the forum! The idea of a narrative seeming game is such a great way to get students engaged and interested. I may use this in my future student teaching placement whereas I will be teaching zoology and environmental science! I also plan on incoporating Kahoots because they have shown to be effective in former classrooms I have been in.

I definitely agree that this article was fantastic with incorporating a game to have the students engaged! I believe this experience will stick with them longer and help them better understand the topic more rather than with worksheets and such.
