The goal of our Landmark Game (with Fun Facts) was to make studying suck less. It was conceived as an interdisciplinary learning tool and integrated as a "build" gaming mechanic, creating a sense of wonder, size, and scope about the world around us.
Students have the ability to build these historic Landmarks, by earning Building Blocks by answering Questions. It's a visual representation of their progress and it dangles the proverbial carrot, to keep them progressing and thinking about the next one.
We have a list of 500+ Landmarks, but we aren't stopping there. Our Students are also interested in art, nature, people, and more. That's why we're working on a Music Game, an Artwork Game, a Plant Game, an Animal Game, and a Public Figure Game.
HOW IT WORKS
Answering 5 Questions earns a Building Block and each Landmark is completed with 10 Blocks.
In Easy mode, Students earn a Block when they attempt 5 Answers, regardless of getting them correct or incorrect.
Change it to Difficult mode and Students will only earn a Block after they get 5 Answers correct.
Teachers can encourage their Students to choose Difficult mode, when preparing for an upcoming test, or exam.
Each Block comes with a multidisciplinary Fun Fact about that Landmark. These add context and content in geography, science, history, and more.
If it helps, Teachers can use these as additional reference points in their lesson plan development. More knowledge, more fun. Right?
