 Blooprints   Blooprints

Scuttlers (weird alien creatures) need accommodation, but they’re fussy and want housing to suit their own particular sense of style. Orders go to the scuttler architect who builds a small model making sure that each scuttler receives a completely original house.

Educational outcomes...
Working mathematically: contextualise mathematics
Measurement: volume
Space: exploring 2D & 3D shapes

Recognising the attributes of a 3D shape, the amount of space or volume it occupies and how it looks from different views, forms the basis of being able to draw, manipulate and use 3d objects. This has practical benefits for daily living and for many occupations such as architecture, sculpting, pottery, technical drafting etc.

Thinking laterally, visualising consequences and generating new ideas and solutions to problems have become essential skills for living in today’s society. Children acquire these skills through creative play, problem solving and exploring and testing their ideas.

During Blooprints the player explores 3D shapes, the volume or space the shapes occupy and how they appear from different views while having the flexibility to create, experiment and try out ideas.

Why should terror and corruption disrupt our lives and make us do things that are not right just because of fear?

This game does not claim to be educational in nature. It is just silly, addictive and lots of fun.

However, it is possible to use this fun game as a starting point for discussion about corrupt and terrorist leaders and could provoke some discussion as to how to reject what these people stand for.

Apart from that, it is just a funny game with which to while away some time whilst having a laugh!

Mr B Bad Wolf should be doing time for his crime. Watch out for the sequence of events in this timely game show.

Educational outcomes...
Working mathematically: problem solving
Measurement: time

Measuring the passing of time has always been of interest and importance to people. Reading time both in digital and analogue format is an integral and important part of our daily lives.

Although children often readily read digital time many have difficulty reading time on an analogue clock face. Much of this difficulty can be overcome by forming an association with ditital time and the muinutes and the numerals on the clock e.g. when the minute hand is on the 1 it indicates 5 minutes has passed; 2 = 10 minutes etc.

Doin’ Time encourages the close association between the minute hand, five minute intervals, the numerals on the clock face and digital time all in a fun game.

Numbers which represent parts of a whole, such as fractions and decimals, are needed in everyday practical situations. Knowledge of the decimal place value develops slowly during the middle and upper primary years and a sound understanding of the sequence and order of decimal numbers is needed to grasp decimal notation successfully.

By playing Wrex Rules the player will use their existing knowledge and understanding of number subtraction patterns and transfer this understanding to decimal notation using regrouping (carrying of tens and hundreds). The game play in Wrex Rules directs focus to theplace value of a digita and sequence of numerals while the arrows support the concept of regrouping.
