Long Description:
Gamification in the classroom has become a hot topic. We will present and play several games that focus directly on science concepts covered in 6th to 12th grade. Concepts that can be taught or reinforced with some of the games we will focus on include: Extreme Weather, Compounds and Chemical Bonding, Natural Resource Use and Conservation. The card game that focuses on Extreme Weather is a game that I am currently working on that I hope to offer on TeachersPayTeachers soon. I will have a Cut and Play copy of several games that participants can take with them after the session.
