Using NGSS to Design Educational Games for Multiple Grade Levels

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this presentation, we describe the development of a cooperative game that aligns with the second grade NGSS disciplinary core idea that "maps show where things are located" and "one can map the shapes and kinds of land and water in any area." Although the topic is considered a second grade NGSS disciplinary core idea, we also attempted to make the game accessible to Kindergartners and First graders, which presented unique design considerations. During this presentation we will share our approach to designing a game for multiple grade levels, and will also provide the results from our alpha test which suggests that the game is both engaging, and developmentally appropriate for multiple age ranges.
