1. Playing a video game in math class can be really fun. What are some of the other benefits of playing
video games to learn concepts?
2. Pretend that our school district is banning Money Island from the curriculum. Using strong examples of
what you've learned, politely fight to keep this program around! (What have you learned from Money Island?) Write a persuasive/argumentative essay that can convince them to keep it around. Organize
your thoughts before you start writing. It should follow the same format as our Human Body Research Papers.
1. Yes, A video game in math class is very fun but what would help us the most would be when we finish the game all the kids would be so happy and they would be chatting about ho fun it was and most of all what they learned. The kids would learn concepts by how the game works. for example in Money Island when I first started I didn't know anything then I got further in the game and kept learning and learning about what money is really about. Also when you go to the Elfie tower you can meet a chef that will teach you about a money pie.
