The outline for our sports court.
What do we know?
I know will be hard to get people to like it enough to play it for fun. Also to make it hard enough that it is a little challenging but not impossible that no one would be able to play it. Also, everything we used has already been invented. That there is no point to a game if no one likes it.
What did we learn?
We learned that making a game is pretty hard because you have to think of something that hasn't been done before. Also we had to use stuff that was all ready invented and that we could use. That it is hard to make a game so everyone would be able to play it.
What do we want to know?
What action did we take?
We used are minds to find a game we both wanted to do. Also we looked up who invented basketball and how James Naismith got the idea.
How will I learn this?
We will learn this by researching sports on the computer. Also by brainstorming, and looking on youtube to see the sports those people have made.
What new questions do we have?
Our questions they are...

I learned that it is hard to make a game because we had so little objects to choose from. The hardest thing we had to was trying to make the game so everyone could play it (affordable). I also learned that it is hard to narrow two peoples ideas in to one. It was fun when we made the video because it was fun for me to explain are game and how it worked. Another thing that was hard for me was to decide what our court looked like. Their was also some easy things that we did like was the blog post and coming up with our ideas. I would change the materials that we used because everything costs money and we choose so many materials that not everyone has and might not what to buy so in the end not everyone can play our sport, and I kind of to make the sport so everyone could play the sport. But I still like how it turned out. If anyone wanted to do something like what we did I would tell them that it is hard and it takes a lot of work and time, and that you want to make sure that people like your sport and would want to play it. Also you might want to use the smallest amount of stuff so more people could play it with out having to go to the store, or you might want to make your own materials.

One of the things I learned was how hard it is to think of and idea for a sport that hasn’t been invented yet. So we took things from other games and made them into our own game. The most fun part probably would have been playing the game, but we never got to because we didn’t have the right court. So the most fun part was probably adding the finishing touches to our game. The hardest part was trying to come up with an idea for a sport that was not yet invented. The easiest part was making our video because, by the time we were making our video we were pretty much pros on the gameplay and rules of our sport. Next time I would probably do my best to create a game that I actually got to play. What I would tell people who are creating a game or sport is that when they are thinking about how the game will be played they have to make sure that their sport does not start to become too much like an already invented game or sport.
