Welcome to TVO’s mPower! In this video, we are highlighting one of our creative online Grade 3-6 games: Sort Right Job Site


In this game, players travel to Thunder Bay and develop their knowledge of Geometric Properties by identifying and sorting construction materials according to sorting rules. 


Players identify, compare and classify various polygons by geometric properties.


When playing for the first time, players, whether they are in grade 3 or 6, begin at the grade 3 tier, Hard Hat Helper. As players complete a grade tier, the next grade tier is unlocked.


Players tap and drag polygons to sort and apply sorting rules.


Players are provided with feedback on their sorting skills.  If needed, scaffolding will provide hints and suggestions to help the player complete the task and solve the problem.


[Game Sound]:  It's okay to make mistakes; we're all human... except for me- I'm Aida. Try another one.

[Game Sound]:  Accessing bin data.


By the end of the game, students should be able to identify, compare and classify various polygons by their geometric properties.
