Yesterday and today pairs of students had a chance to play Tangible Play's Words game. I (and the students) loved the high quality photos and the differentiated levels of puzzles. The game is set-up to be a 2-player activity but I didn't mention this to them, instead I had the pairs work together to figure out the words. It was exciting for me to listen to their conversations. Most have played hangman before and were able to bring in strategy from that game to choose letters. After all students had rotated through the game (in 10 minute chunks) we had a class discussion about working together and determining letters to throw down.
I look forward to more play time with the game.
