Geo Garden Video Transcript

Version 4

    Welcome to TVO’s mPower! In this video, we are highlighting one of our creative online Grade 1 games: Geo Garden.

     

    In this game, players visit a park and develop their knowledge of Geometric Properties by composing two-dimensional shapes with particular geometric properties.

     

    Players create shapes on a virtual geo-board to make a garden. 

     

    If correct, players are given the opportunity to dig out the grass and plant various types of flowers.

     

    If the response is incorrect, hints are provided to aid the player.

     

    [Game Sound]: Hmm... Not yet.Try again!

    [Game Sound]: Mistakes show that you're trying! Try tracing the shape.

     

    One of the special features of the game is that when all three game stages have been completed, players have the opportunity to create any shape they wish.

     

    Shapes created in the last stage can be printed from the Community Gallery in the educator dashboard and used for communication and application of learning. This allows for assessment as learning and encourages peer and self-assessment.
