Check out Space Center Houston:
It is just so cool! Once Mr. Brosseau and I have some kiddies I definitely want to bring them back here to play in the giant Angry Birds play area and give them a chance to be brave and climb to the top of those green pillars.
There is other really neat stuff there too, like animals, all sorts of space suits, sing-alongs and cool memorabilia.
But the games, oh the games! They make me wish I was ten years old again!
With the amount of games I play in my high school courses you might think I'm a ten year old. I posted earlier this week about my Freebie Astronomy Terms Domino Puzzle, here is another game that I just love! It's from Gina Wilson at All Things Algebra. She's got lots of games for math but when the Koosh Ball Game Template went up for sale I snatched it up. What a time saver!
Kids throw a Koosh Ball (or in my case, the Slingshot Monkey or a dollar store ball that looks like Earth) at the SmartBoard and it gives them their question. Don't have a SmartBoard? No worries, I also used it just on the pull-down screen and I click where they hit. And if they miss - too bad ;)
It's really easy to type in your questions and answers. It's very cute how there is applause once the answer is revealed. Now because it's space week I will show you how to edit Gina's game for your subject. It's so easy!
|Open up the file, this is the trickiest part ;)|
|Select the object you want to change, and click Fill then Picture|
|Select the picture you want to use|
|Beautiful, but let's remove the outline|
|Click on Outline and select No Outline|
|Repeat and Voila! I used smaller celestial objects for the higher point values. Not to scale, certainly, but more in that direction.|
Just remember now that you've personalized Gina's game doesn't mean you can go and sell your version of her work!
Check it out, I think you'll like it!
