We are pleased to announce the arrival of additional curriculum materials for instructors! To coordinate with the recent 2013 Kodu Imagine Cup, these three lessons are themed around water. Through these lessons, students are invited to explore the ways in which water connects humans, animals and weather within ecosystems.
Here is what’s included:
Lesson 1 lets students explore the important role that water plays in underwater animal ecosystems through the lens of the life of a cybersalmon (a Kodu style North American Sockeye Salmon).
Lesson 2 reframes what students learned in lesson 1 by presenting a game world for players to observe as well as create their own salmon run game.
Lesson 3 presents students with the challenge to construct their own model showing the relationship that exists between bodies of water, currents, temperature, and weather patterns.
||For instructors, each lesson is broken down into:
- Mastery Objectives/Results
- Example Teacher Resources (Instructors are encouraged to verify that materials meet the standards of their classroom)
- Lesson Sequence
- 5 minute Activator
- And either Guided Discovery or Project-Based Learning Activities
You can access these new curriculum materials here. We look forward to seeing what your students create!
