I was able to leave directions in Google Classroom, make a Google Form for the students to fill out while they work things out for the people of Braxos, a fictional colony that needs leaders to make decisions for the betterment of the people. The students must work in pairs or small groups to collaborate through some scenarios. All their decisions have consequences and it really makes them think beyond their small bubble.
fThe feedback from the classroom teachers and the substitute was that 4th grade needed more guidance with the game but it worked very well with the 5th graders. I plan on using this again with students. I will introduce them by completing the first level while I am in attendance, I will then feel more comfortable leaving further levels to be completed with a substitute teacher.
