My colleague sent me a link yesterday for a website that allows students to play video games, but they have to answer some questions before they can keep playing. It’s called Review Game Zone. I decided to check it out and it’s actually a really neat idea!
There are a variety of games to choose from and they can even choose the easy, medium or hard levels (embedded differentiation!) Again, the lack of computer labs doesn’t allow me to use the site, at least not for this year, but I might just create an account so that I can come up with my own activities. I can just put the link up to my class portal and encourage my students to check them out…
Let me know if you do get a chance to try them out and how it goes!
