Third graders at Eagle Point Elementary School recently created a cardboard arcade for the rest of their school classmates.
According to 3rd grade teacher Jen Naramore, the project was inspired by a movement started a few years ago by a 9-year-old boy named Caine who created a cardboard arcade inside his father’s garage. Caine had several setbacks, but, with perseverance, ended up becoming famous. More information is available here.
Students created the cardboard arcade after completing their simple machines unit. By creating the cardboard arcade, students used their knowledge of simple machines to explore physics, game development, and the learning process through their collaborative creation of a game.
