A gift to our friends

Students of Nea Karya Primary School used the historical records that were sent as a gift to them from Ctalonian partners in the end of the 1st year and created a short video for them. These historical records were the motivaton for selecting the topic: "My school in the past, in the present, in the future".  of the 2nd year.

The board of our game
Collaborative board game of history

For creating a board game in common we selected a board and divided it in 4 parts. Students from each school worked in groups in order to paint and decorate their part of the board of the game and their question cards. The questions are related with historical events of local or school history of each partner. The game is a fictious travel in space and time through which students increase their knowledge in history of the participating countries with funny way. Here are some photos during their work, our board and our question cards.

 poem called "Cicadas".

Here are the rules of the game. The Greek Primary School of London will translate them in English.

 

Όνομα παιιχνιδιού: Ιστοριο - παιχνιδίσματα

 

 

1. Το παιχνίδι παίζεται από 2 – 6 παίχτες ή ομάδες παιχτών.

2. Όλοι οι παίχτες τοποθετούν αρχικά τα πιόνια τους στην αφετηρία, ενώ τοποθετούν τις κάρτες των ερωτήσεων με την πίσω όψη προς τα πάνω, δηλαδή ανάποδα.

3. Οι παίχτες ρίχνουν το ζάρι και ξεκινά αυτός που θα φέρει τον μεγαλύτερο αριθμό.

4.  Ο κάθε παίχτης πρέπει να απαντήσει σε μία ερώτηση της χώρας στην οποία βρίσκεται το πιόνι του. Αν απαντήσει σωστά συνεχίζει. Αν όχι, χάνει τη σειρά του. Τις ερωτήσεις του τις διαβάζουν οι αντίπαλοι. Για να έχει το δικαίωμα να συνεχίσει, όταν θα έρθει ξανά η σειρά του, πρέπει να απαντήσει σωστά σε μία άλλη ερώτηση, αλλιώς χάνει πάλι τη σειρά του.

5. Νικητής του παιχνιδιού είναι αυτός που θα φτάσει πρώτος στον τερματισμό, τελειώνοντας πρώτος το ταξίδι του στις χώρες και στην ιστορία.

At first they had exchanged ideas through "MeetingWords" (a web 2.0 tool), they drawn it (in hand or using the PC) and finally they made a presentation, one for each team, in prezi showing to us their ideas. After that they voted for their favorite presentation using a tool of google. Here are the presentations and the results of the voting.
