Well, I have been off of the grid lately, working on a new augmented reality game for my students. This game is designed to introduce them to Manifest Destiny. There were two things that I was hoping to accomplish with this game. First, to introduce them to Manifest Destiny, and second to get them working together. This game is set up so each student in the group interviews a different character. Each person in the group receives only a portion of the answer in their interview, making it necessary for the students to work together to get the correct answer. Each stop has a question that is presented to them at the beginning of the game that will be answered a long the way.
The entire game takes place on the back field of our school with a total of four stops in the game. I am very excited to try this game out on Monday. Wish me luck!
