Tower Blaster Game

Standard

Tower Blaster

A game from Sandra.  Good for older students, Levels 3 and 4 (or precocious Level 2s), and those with an affinity for physics.

Sandra says, “It can work (with extra help) with younger students, but it is best with older students who can grasp the game mechanics. They can really get into it! It helps them with their numbers, and orders. I think it’s different from the usual games, so it adds some variety.  I just do the first level with them, and it can take anywhere from 4-10 minutes (depends on the game/students)!”

For those of you who (like me) are slightly traumatised by the numbers and wish to sneak in a bit of history, Murder is Everywhere has a good blog–though it’s at Level 5, so you’ll have to summarise for the students.

About theenglishmajor

Theoretically, I am an English tutor, but that doesn't quite cover the E.S.L., the literacy, the history, the geography, the religion and the creative writing I teach. Alternative education fascinates me; a good deal of modern society frustrates me; my B.A.Creative Writing was interesting, but raising two children to adolescence has taught me much more than anything else has or will.
